GGEA and eGIF Resources

The Ghana Government’s Enterprise Architecture (GGEA) establishes a framework for all MDAs to achieve their missions through optimal performance of their core business processes within an efficient information technology environment. This means that the GGEA serves as a blueprint for systematically and completely defining each MDAs current or desired environment.
The Ghana Government Enterprise Architecture will enable information technology decisions that are driven by the business needs of Government in the delivery of services. Enterprise architecture improves business-technology alignment, Government service delivery, security, Government data sharing, and enterprise-wide integration. Also, enterprise architecture lowers costs and more effectively uses Government resources.

The e-GIF document developed by NITA is to ensure efficiency and transparency in the delivery of basic public services to all citizens.
The current situation in Government is that each MDA has silos of information and systems that have been developed and unable to talk to one another for the purposes of information sharing.
The e-GIF document sets the ICT standards, policies and guidelines to be used by all MDAs to achieve interoperability, meaning that information sharing across the MDAs will be much improved.

The e-GIF provides the following objectives across Government:

  1. e-government interoperability leads to better decision-making by allowing data compiled by different agencies to be used together to make better decisions.
  2. Interoperability allows for better coordination of government agency programmes and services in order to provide enhanced services to citizens and businesses.
  3. Interoperability is the foundation of a citizen-centric, one-stop delivery of services through a variety of channels.
  4. Interoperability leads to cost savings and/or cost avoidance. By making systems ‘talk’ to one another, there may be no need for new systems that were once deemed necessary. Further, demanding interoperability breaks reliance on single vendors and yields choice for governments in their purchases, upgrades and as they scale.
  5. Interoperability also promotes international cooperation, among governments it can help create infrastructures necessary to solve cross-border problems such as drug trafficking, environmental pollution, money laundering and illegal arms trade. Interoperability among governments can also mean delivery of e-government services to citizens and businesses across a region.
  6. Interoperability contributes to good governance.
