©2024 Edo State Government

Let's build a lasting legacy together.

The Edo State Information Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) began in January 2009 as the Directorate of Information Communication Technology. Since then, we've driven the successful integration of technology across state agencies. Our advancements in e-governance, innovation, and staff training have transformed Edo State government operations. In 2012, a law established ICTA as an official Agency, recognizing our proven impact.

Being an enabler of technology for effective public service delivery, the office recorded great successes for the State through the deployment of technology in MDAs, introduction of cutting-edge innovations for Government, capacity enhancement for public servants, and introduction of e-governance. We grew into becoming an Agency through the passage of a bill and subsequent signing into law for the establishment of Edo State Information Communication Technology Agency by the Edo State House of Assembly in 2012.

Today, we are committed to reforming processes and systems within government agencies. Our goal is to implement e-governance principles that promote accountability, transparency, and citizen participation. We envision streamlined, efficient public services that shatter the boundaries of traditional bureaucracy.

Reengineered Process

ICTA has executed novel projects which has ensured that operations and core government business functions are not severely impacted by unplanned incidents. We have restructured our operations using technology to include Business Continuity planning and execution as a proactive step to mitigate unplanned incidences in our organizational process. By this we would achieve the restoration of normal business processes and activities in a set amount of time, with define amount of data loss acceptable to the business, and then communicate critical information to organizational stakeholders during and following incidents. Our distinctiveness lies in the inclusion of technology and our unique operational model.
