Strategic Plan Strategic Plan

2017 - 2022

The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology is mandated to ‘Lay the foundation for the accelerated use and development of ICT in Namibia, and Coordinate information management within Government’. As a step to fulfil their mandate, MICT embarked upon the development of a comprehensive five-year Strategic Plan 2017-2022 through a process of strategic planning and application of strategic thinking.

 

Focused to contribute to the realization of Namibia Vision 2030

The result of this process is a Strategic Plan which provides the strategic direction comprising a Vision, Mission and Core Values; details of how MICT will get there and how it will know that it has attained its vision. Central to all these processes is an effective Performance Management System (PMS) which ensures delivery on results and accountability. In this regard, a Strategic Plan is therefore a foundation for an effective Performance Management System which ultimately forms a basis in setting parameters for individual/staff level Performance thereby translating a strategy into the desired actions by the entire organisation. All these actions should demonstrate the Ministry’s contribution to the achievement of the national dream, Vision 2030. The desired future of Namibia is to be “A prosperous and industrialized Namibia developed by her human resources, enjoying peace, harmony and political stability”.

 

In order to evaluate its successes and overcome challenges in executing the mandate, the process of strategic planning commenced with the review of the previous Strategic Plan 2014-2017. This was done to appreciate the past and lay a foundation for the new Strategic Plan as well as to execute the mandate in response to attaining the country’s Vision.

The methodology followed in formulating the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan was based on the Public Service Strategic Planning Framework. It was developed by the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) to guide the development of strategic plans across the entire Public Service. In this regard, the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) will in the next five years deliver results on the following Pillars:

  1. ICT Development;
  2. Information Services and
  3. Operational Excellence.

These results will come about through the achievement of four distinct but interrelated Strategic objectives. MICT will:

  1. Accelerate ICT development, access and use for an inclusive ICT smart Namibia.
  2. Enhance unhindered access to information for an informed nation.
  3. Promote Namibia as a preferred film destination.
  4. Enhance an enabling environment for a high performance culture and effective service delivery.

 

In pursuit of these results, MICT leadership, management and staff shall live and uphold the following core values namely:

  1. Helpfulness;
  2. Innovation;
  3. Transparency;
  4. Accessibility and
  5. Accountability.

 

The acronym for these values shall be known as “HITAA”
