The background

The Digital India program of the Government of India has a vision to transform India into digitally empowered society & knowledge economy. The objective of Capacity Building Scheme (CB Scheme) under this program is to capacitate the government officers, both at Central & State level and to build the in-house capacity for leading, designing, managing & implementation of various e-Governance initiatives. Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) has entrusted the implementation of this CB Scheme to National e-Governance Division (NeGD).

Preparation of Request for Proposal (RFP) is a important instrument in procurement process of any project. Through this process a suitable implementation partner is identified which will further affect the attainment of required objective of the project and smooth transitioning to funding agency/client. As the complexity of e-Governance projects are different from other procurement process, a vital need was identified to capacitate related officers, specifically for it. National Institute of Financial Management (NIFM) as one of the leading training partner of NeGD is conducting a training program on Request for Proposal (RFP) for e-Governance Projects.
