iciHaiti – Politic : Development of electronic governance in the country
The Observatoire du Numérique en Haiti (ObNH), takes note of the Government’s decision to designate the Haitian Institute of Statistics and Information Technology (IHSI) as the privileged interlocutor for the development of electronic governance in the country.
Faced with the disparity and interoperability of IT solutions currently implemented in public administration, the opacity of the methodology, strategic choices, technological solutions and the inadequacy of the legal framework governing the sector, the ObNH understands the absolute need to overcome the multifaceted challenges and issues of the social divide and of the digital economy to which face the public and private sectors and to harmonize public policies in this area.
Consequently, the ObNH wishes that the resources allocated in the past can join those of the IHSI in order to ensure a modernized delivery of State services withh “a demand for results which would positively strengthen the confidence of all digital players in Haiti.”
While calling for more transparency and a better definition of “government digital policy”, the Observatory hopes that this decision can bring more serenity and efficiency in electronic governance in Haiti.
