Other key findings • National departments and other suppliers are defining the ICT needs of the Province, they are also shaping the ICT landscape; • There must be a significant shift toward an ICT space that is driven by the Province and government entities. • There is however a mindset gap between key decision makers and ICT practitioners in public organisations; • The Province needs to move towards a meeting of the minds 15

Other key findings • Through the efforts of the working group, this CSI investment can be redirected such that they support a single vision for the Province.

Elements of the horizon Service affordability

SUSTAINABILITY

Low cost devices

Universal service/ac cess

Broadband access

17

Digital literacy

Analytical framework The illusion of affordability must be addressed. Current affordability has been achieved by ‘subsidising’ the costs for services and access

In future, all proposed initiatives will be assessed by means of clear criteria based on the analytical framework 18
