This strategy aims for superiority in developing and operating a unified and sustainable system for government resources, improving the beneficiary’s experience, and managing change to adopt solutions for government resource systems.
This is in addition to ensuring maximum utilization of the capabilities of the NCGR to achieve the best results and returns for the government, enhancing data's infrastructure and reliability, and managing change to support the data culture.
