eGA advised Ministry of Technology, Communication and Innovation of Mauritius on formulation of the Data Sharing Policy and Data Architecture in cooperation with technology company Nortal Ldt.
The Data Sharing Policy and Data Architecture document was focused on the achievement of interoperability of Mauritius ICT ecosystem. Interoperability is both a prerequisite for and a facilitator of the efficient delivery of public data and services. The framework was addressed to improve:
- cooperation between public administrations aiming for the establishment of public services;
- exchanging, sharing and reusing information between public administrations to fulfil legal requirements, and political commitments;
- achieving better public service delivery to citizens and businesses and reducing costs for public administrations, businesses and citizens due to the efficient delivery of public services.
The objective of the Framework in its current phase was to focus on the principles, mechanisms and components enabling user centric services – both for civil servants, businesses and citizens.
