Nigeria’s National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has announced plans to conduct a comprehensive review of the guidelines governing the registration process for ICT service providers and contractors responsible for delivering IT services to Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) within the federal government.
The guidelines, initially issued in 2018, outline the registration process for Indigenous IT service providers. The agency aims to enhance the efficiency of the registration process, boost indigenous IT service provision, and engage competent vendors for IT service delivery to federal MDAs.
The amendment aligns with the current administration’s commitment to achieving collective prosperity through efficiency and innovation. The agency emphasised the goal of delivering high-quality IT projects to the federal government, upholding professionalism in IT services, and fostering the growth of local IT companies, all in adherence to relevant Presidential Executive Orders.
Stakeholders and the public are invited to share insights, comments, and feedback on the proposed amendments before January 21, 2024.
