e-pragati to bring all Govt. services under one roof

The Sate Cabinet on Saturday accorded formal approval to the AP State Enterprise Architecture, e-Pragati, which will bring all the government services under one roof. It has has achieved yet another first by launching the AP State Enterprise Architecture (APSEA), a comprehensive architecture to leverage the latest advances in e-governance tools.

e-Pragati has been designed with an estimated investment of Rs. 2,358 crore of which the State will share Rs. 1,528 crore over a period of three years. The project is aimed at bringing together 745 G2B (government to businesses), G2C (government to citizens), G2E (government to employees) and G2G (government to governments) services offered by 33 departments and more than 300 government agencies.

Sharing the details of e-Pragathi, IT department officials said that the basic objective is to move away from the piecemeal approach and provide an integrated ‘One governance’ that will be citizen-centric, transparent and effective.

The ground work for the ambitious project, which has been entrusted to IT major Wipro, has been going on since January. As many as 72 projects of various departments of similar nature such as welfare departments, works departments, land management wings and sectors (tourism, industries and etc.) have been grouped under 14 packages. The government is gearing up to invite expression of interest from interested companies/enterprises for developing appropriate software programmes for the projects.

The project is envisaged to be implemented in three phase and set for completion by December 2017. A detailed document on e-Pragati will be released by Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu at Visakhapatnam . The different projects will be awarded to bidders through e-procurement policy. “We will fan out in the next four to six weeks and the first phase comprising three packages – core governance, agriculture and education will be awarded by the end of this month”, officials said.
