Sharing of data between government organizations is important; the matter was highlighted in the recent Civil and Identity Registry, Bill review.
Government sectors were urged to share the data available that was relevant to service delivery.
With the scarcity of adequate real-time data available to Government agencies, there must be sharing of the little information available between these agencies and the provincial governments.
“Partnerships, networking, sharing, and inclusiveness – they are the key principles of governance today and we begin to now understand that there is only one employer and that is the state,” said Constitutional Law and Reform Commission Secretary, Dr. Eric Kwa.
Dr. Kwa asked why there were Government agencies not sharing data with each other, including the Provincial Government offices.
He said systems in Government need information and collaborative efforts with each other to contribute to ensuring effective service delivery.
