In addition the project will help to bring streamline the business processes related to these services and give clarity to the agencies involved in the delivery of the services.

Who will benefit

In particular this will benefit citizens who reside in rural or hinterland communities and those in the diaspora. The current costs for these services to citizens is high and usual involves lengthy processing times, long travelling distances and sometimes unclear procedures. Moreover the authority responsibility will benefit from a centralized process.
