Currently our mission is enabling government to harness the capabilities of the Internet, to grow the appropriate use of ICT, increase internal efficiencies and provide a better service to citizens as a pathway to e-Government.

More will be added to this site as the strategy matures, in the meantime we are focused on delivery of value to all stakeholders. Please see:

  • A summary document of the Cape Online Symposium - this event hosted in September 2001, allowed all public sector organisations an opportunity to comminicate online projects and share experiences and lessons as well as identify opportunities for future collaborations and partnerships.
