Government Electronic Networking: Pre-implementation Phase (GovNet)
Institution: ICT Policy Implementation Technical Unit
Theme: Internet Governance
Implementation Date: Oct 07, 2006
Summary: The Government of Mozambique has recognized the need to stimulate more efficient communication and information-sharing within and between government agencies and to increase its ability to communicate with society at large. It has assigned a high priority to the establishment of a government electronic network (GovNet) in both the Implementation Plan of the Public Sector Reform Strategy and the National ICT Policy Implementation Strategy.

This Government Intranet would be an essential building block in providing an enabling environment for fostering the rule of law, increased transparency, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness of government operations; improving the quality and coverage of co-productive public service delivery; and allowing for increased participation in government decision-making processes – in short, for fostering the establishment of systems of good governance.

Impact: The Public Sector Reform Strategy identifies six major components that will have a dramatic impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of government operations.

•    Improving service delivery through decentralization and institutional restructuring;

•    Strengthening the policy formulation and monitoring process with the facilitation of communications and information-sharing between government departments;

•    Enhancing professionalism in the public service by increasing the capacity of the Government to attract and retain qualified staff;

•    Improving financial management and accountability. Mozambique has already adopted a new public finance management law to introduce modern budgetary processes;

•    Promoting good governance and combating corruption; and

•    Managing the reform process.
