Government of India has approved the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP) in pursuance of its policy of introducing e-Governance on a massive scale. An important component of the NeGP are projects, which fall essentially within the domain of the State Governments. The State Governments naturally will prioritise/choose amongst these projects.
The nature and scale of e-governance initiatives planned within the domain of the State Governments, present a considerable enhancement in the aspiration level of government. Major managerial and technological challenges are one consequence of this, particularly in the context of the need for implementation of these projects in a "mission mode" with clearly defined goals, timelines and responsibilities by concerned departments of the State Governments. There is also a need to manage the entire programme at the state level in a coherent manner with consistent strategies for cost optimisation and integration. For achieving this, the State Governments need to provide for overall direction, standardisation and consistency across initiatives and at the same time, have the resources and flexibility to drive this plan.
Keeping in view the enormous task of driving NeGP in line with the overall spirit of service orientation most states are inadequately equipped in terms of personnel and the skill-sets needed to handle the host of issues involved. For NeGP to achieve its goals, this is the first gap that needs to be addressed and needed to handle the challenges that are likely to be faced in implementing vision and objectives of NeGP. These include:
- Aligning project design to NeGP service orientation
- Bringing standardization and consistency across initiatives and at the same time, have the resources and flexibility to
- drive this plan
- Change Management
- Government Process Reengineering
- Optimizing cost and resource utilization
- Leveraging external resources
- Implementing best practices followed elsewhere
- Project and Programme Monitoring
