The National Information Development Agency () has developed a draft framework that would help government to be more digitally inclined in line with the country’s National e-government Master Plan.

Known as “Draft Nigerian Government Enterprise Architecture” (NGEA), the operating model articulates how government is going to adapt and use IT to drive its businesses and different sectors of the economy, while the Enterprise Architecture framework ensures people, process, and other resources are better aligned with IT through standardised interoperable platforms.

The Director-General of NITDA, Isa Ibrahim Pantami, who disclosed this in , said that even though IT projects of some federal public institutions have significantly advanced individually, experience has shown that as each institution increases its IT investments and widens the scope of e-government services, IT systems are getting more complex with many problems emerging.

IT could be deployed and coordinated in government to create expected value.
