Development of Software for the eGrama Niladhari Pilot Project (eGN Project)
The Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure (MIDI) has been established especially to address the requirements for making Sri Lanka a digitally empowered nation. In order to do so, MTDI has been assigned with the specific functions such as promotion of digital literacy, assisting the public sector organizations in adopting appropriate ICT solutions for promotion of productivity and efficiency. Tendersontime, a leading business leading Online Tender Notice Portals is the first agency to report this notification.
Accordingly MTDI has been mandated to implement innovative digital initiatives for fulfilling the above functions.
Since the citizen interactions with grass root level government officers are vast due to the routine services offered by them MTDI decided to initiate a project to improve the efficiency of duties carried out by Grama Niladharis for better service delivery. The project has been named as eGrama Niladhari (eGN) Project.
eGN project has been initiated in collaboration with the Ministry of Home Affairs. The Project will focus on enabling the Grams Niladhari to enhance his/her official activities by using an ICT system which would work on Household database and provide easy-to-use facilities to provide most needed citizen services. The system should finally be integrated with other government systems which need the assistant of Grama Nildhari to complete their functions. Based on these requirements MIDI intends to engage a software development service provider (firm) to develop and commission the eGN project and provide support and maintenance services.
The MTDI intends to implement a project for testing the above concept in 2016, further develop the solution and roll it out to all GN divisions in 2017 and 2018. This procurement is only limited to develop, deploy and provide support and maintenance services for eGN pilot solution to Grama Nildhari officers in four (4) DS divisions.
MTDI now invites Expressions of Interest (FANS) from eligible software development service providers (firms) to take up the implementation of this solution.
