- Introduction : eGMP aims to facilities the government from every sector of data flow to security structural design whole system of E-governance. Enterprise architecture is a way to understand how an organization works. We have often made it too complex in some cases and worried about the mechanics of GoN EA (Nepal Government Enterprise Architecture) rather than focusing on the value it provides. Here, we focus on understanding the core concepts after which we can worry about the mechanics. GoN EA should be the foundation for any Government and business transformation.
- Why eGMP? With the rapid development and expansion of ICT, and in particular, with the fast penetration of the Internet, government administrative services is also transforming from its traditional, manual, passive services to active, enhanced, consolidated and automated services. In line with such trend in ICT, globally governments are aiming to establish the e-government which can improve productivity in administrative services, realize a networked government, satisfy its people‘s demand in administrative services, and enhance the national competitiveness through proactive services.
- Mission/Vision: To achieve good governance and social and economic development by establishing effective, systematic, and productive e-Government, the Government of Nepal have established the e-Government Master Plan (eGMP) with the objective of leveraging the full potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to improve the efficiency and capability of government processes and services.To realize Nepal‘s e-Government vision and mission of providing a ―Value Networking Nepal‖ by building efficient, transparent and citizen centric government services, termed as ―e-Services‖ through ICT, defining the ―Government Enterprise Architecture‖ for Nepal has been one of the key priority projects identified.The Government Enterprise Architecture (GEA) project has been envisioned to deliver a common integrated interoperability platform or service delivery gateway for information exchange and host the national portal of Nepal that will act as the single window (one-stop-shop) for all government e-Services and electronic information of Nepal to be delivered to citizens (G2C), business (G2B) and government employees (G2E). Delivery of e-Services will enable increased citizen participation and attempt to create an open, transparent environment through integration of different government information systems and services.
