Accenture bags portal implementation contract from Sikkim Government


Accenture announced that it won a contract from the state
government of Sikkim to create Internet access to government services,
improving efficiency and reducing administrative functions.


The 42-month contract will help improve information
delivery and monitoring of services through online access for citizens and
businesses.


Accenture
will leverage its expertise in technology and
leading large-scale implementation efforts to create an Internet-based system
that will enable collaboration by state departments, standardization of
information and increased efficiency of service delivery to citizens and
businesses.


The e-Governance portal
will provide easy, anywhere, anytime access to government services and help
reduce the number of government office visits for citizens.


e-Governance enables stakeholders to access a host
of services digitally and conveniently, eliminating the need for citizens to
stand in long queues to obtain information and services. This is especially
true in the populous emerging markets,” said Krishna G.V. Giri, who leads
Accenture’s Health & Public Service operating group in India and its
Management Consulting practice in Asia Pacific.


The government will be better equipped not only to share
important information, but facilitate future growth by reducing operational
costs and overhead. We are proud to
collaborate with the government on this important digital initiative,” Giri
added.


The Accenture e-forms builder enables state governments
like Sikkim to deliver early availability of services to its citizens.


We believe this project will significantly benefit
citizens and enable easy interaction with various government services. This
represents an important part of our ongoing initiative to move Sikkim ahead in
our path toward citizen-centric, technological advancement,” said N K Pradhan,
minister of Information Technology of State of Sikkim.


We believe this project will encourage more
e-interactions going forward. The mindset in the state is evolving and
progressing toward one of technological advancement and development. We are
gearing up to build a strong infrastructure to better service our
stakeholders,” said KK Pradhan, secretary, Information Technology of State of
Sikkim.


Accenture is conducting similar work in India for the
Government of Nagaland.
