i-Gov Governance Model
ictQATAR has developed an effective governance model for i-Gov involving the highest level of government and a broad range of stakeholders, giving the program full political top-down and bottom-up support. This is achieved through the regular meeting of various levels of management committees.
i-Gov Steering Committee - chaired by the secretary general of ictQATAR, this committee includes the directors of the General Information Management Office (GIMO), Strategic Planning and the i-Gov program manager. It meets monthly to discuss and resolve external stakeholder issues.
Program Management Committee - chaired by the director of GIMO and includes the i-Gov Program Manager, GIMO Platform and Operations Managers, and the section manager of the i-Gov project Management Office. The committee meets every two weeks to review progress and discuss deliverable and directional issues.
Project Steering Committees - these committees are chaired by the lead organizations within a specific project which will either be ictQATAR or a government entity. Their purpose is to oversee the progress of specific projects. The committees will include representatives from different entities and GIMO projects managers who are able to give directional advice to external stakeholders.
Project Delivery Teams - composed of stakeholders and ictQATAR members, with the latter providing the technical knowhow. They are in charge of project delivery.
User Committees - meetings relating to cross-governmental initiatives which are attended by relevant experts and the stakeholders in the initiative. The meetings provide progress reports and reviews and ensure the quality of project deliverables
There are also quarterly ICT forums which are attended by all government Chief Information Officers and ICT managers. The i-Gov program officers share progress reports with respect to new initiatives, improvements, policies, requirements and experiences with the attendees and receive feedback. This encourages broad participation, an exchange of information, expertise and knowledge as well as the development of a professional IT community.
