about-img

Our primary business is the provision of ICT consulting and support services for Government, as well as the provision of value-added ICT support services to Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

The National Information and Communication Technology Company Limited’s (branded iGovTT) mandate is to provide the Government of Trinidad and Tobago with ICT consulting and support services for its ministries, departments, divisions and agencies.

iGovTT is the implementation arm of the Ministry of Public Administration, the Ministry responsible for the administration and execution of the Government’s enterprise-wide ICT strategy. The company focuses on both small and large-scale Government ICT projects that support the movement toward e-Government and Trinidad and Tobago’s overall ICT development.

iGovTT acts as the custodian of two major platforms; ttconnect and GovNeTT. Essentially a series of shared services and common platforms, these solutions form the basis for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Government Service delivery. The impact of these improvements therefore extends far beyond Government to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago who are ultimately the recipients of government services.

The Company is resolutely guided by its vision: "To be the premier ICT solution provider to GoRTT, enabling efficiency, increasing productivity and transforming the delivery of government services to the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.”
