The directorate recognizes the critical role of ICT services in supporting the Assembly’s business and the provision of services for our staff and our stakeholders—the government, the public and our departmental partners.
It is therefore pursuing a concerted and coordinated effort to deploy modern office automation platforms, and local area networks at all ward offices, as well as an improved fast, reliable and secure communications network that is centrally managed to support the users.
