Excerpt

The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology is mandated to ‘Lay the
foundation for the accelerated use and development of ICT in Namibia, and Coordinate
information management within Government’. As a step to fulfil their mandate, MICT
embarked upon the development of a comprehensive five-year Strategic Plan 2017-2022
through a process of strategic planning and application of strategic thinking.
The result of this process is a Strategic Plan which provides the strategic direction comprising
a Vision, Mission and Core Values; details of how MICT will get there and how it will know that
it has attained its vision. Central to all these processes is an effective
Performance Management System (PMS) which ensures delivery on results
and accountability. In this regard, a Strategic Plan is therefore a foundation
for an effective Performance Management System which ultimately forms a
basis in setting parameters for individual/staff level Performance thereby
translating a strategy into the desired actions by the entire organisation. All
these actions should demonstrate the Ministry’s contribution to the
achievement of the national dream, Vision 2030. The desired future of
Namibia is to be “A prosperous and industrialized Namibia developed by her
human resources, enjoying peace, harmony and political stability”.
In order to evaluate its successes and overcome challenges in executing the mandate, the
process of strategic planning commenced with the review of the previous Strategic Plan 2014-
2017. This was done to appreciate the past and lay a foundation for the new Strategic Plan as
well as to execute the mandate in response to attaining the country’s Vision.

The methodology followed in formulating the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan was based on the
Public Service Strategic Planning Framework. It was developed by the Office of the Prime
Minister (OPM) to guide the development of strategic plans across the entire Public Service.
In this regard, the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) will in the
next five years deliver results on the following Pillars:
1. ICT Development;
2. Information Services and
3. Operational Excellence.
These results will come about through the achievement of four distinct but interrelated
Strategic objectives. MICT will:
i. Accelerate ICT development, access and use for an inclusive ICT smart Namibia.
ii. Enhance unhindered access to information for an informed nation.
iii. Promote Namibia as a preferred film destination.
v. Enhance an enabling environment for a high performance culture and effective
service delivery.

In pursuit of these results, MICT leadership, management and staff shall live and uphold the
following core values namely:
1. Helpfulness;
2. Innovation;
3. Transparency;
4. Accessibility and
5. Accountability.
The acronym for these values shall be known as “HITAA”
