Connect all central government departments and establish websites

Target 6 reflects the growing importance of e-government in terms of connecting government departments and equipping them with a web presence. The Geneva Plan of Action (ITU, 2005) called for developing national e-government initiatives and services to achieve greater transparency and accountability at all levels of government for better service delivery. E-government as a tool for public sector reform and development enables better inter-organizational linkages and consolidation of government systems, improvements in service delivery and efficacy in government functioning.
