OVERVIEW

USAID’s Electronic Government Resource Center Phase II (EGRC-II) project built upon the successes of phase I and enhanced the policymaking capabilities of Afghanistan’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MoCIT). Through a state-of-the-art resource center, EGRC-II helped the Afghan government to use information and communications technology to improve operations, increase transparency, and promote efficient service delivery.

EGRC-II provided technical expertise, skills, and guidance in distributing and utilizing e-government solutions throughout the ministries and agencies of the Afghan government. The e-government solutions made government offices more competent to respond to citizens’ service requests, and to implement key legislative, policy, and strategic reforms needed for a thriving technology-driven private sector.
