Nearly half a century since it came into existence, the government is now looking to revamp and restructure the National Informatics Centre (NIC) — its the technology arm — to help the organisation keep pace with the growing need for digital technologies in the country.
The Centre has issued a Request for Proposal for selection of a consultant for NIC’s organisational restructuring.
The NIC comes under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), and it was established in 1976 with the objective to provide technology-driven solutions to the Central and State Governments. “There is a need for thorough re-assessment of the NIC with respect to its structure, size, quality of personnel, human resource policies, roles & responsibilities and other tech & non-tech enablers that help the organisation performs effectively to deliver targeted outcomes,” as per the RFP document.
The document has invited proposals from “qualified management consulting firms” to help develop a restructuring plan and implementation roadmap.
