Dharamshala: The Tibetan Computer Resource Center (TCRC) in collaboration with the Social and Resource Development (SARD) Fund organized the first live session of the Digital Virtual Academy for the Digital Working Group of the CTA which consists of representatives from every department and sections of the CTA.
The objective of this activity is to deliver online engagement consisting of lectures, workshops, and one-on-one mentorship, to the Digital Working Group and will;
a) introduce members of the CTA to the concepts of e-government and digital transformation specific to the needs and functions of the CTA;
b) familiarize the CTA with the technical requirements and concepts of e-government based on the Estonian experience; and
c) develop a concept of e-government transformation that reflects and prioritizes the specific needs, mandate and capabilities of the CTA. A part of the partnership with Zeropoint and EGA is to conduct an exercise to use the concept developed through the Digital Virtual Academy as a basis for an assessment of the current capabilities [people, process and technology] and the outcome of the assessment will be an action plan for the CTA that sets priorities, according to mission, mandate, budget, and capabilities.
The Secretary of the Department of Finance, CTA, Ms. Yeshi Wangmo, officially inaugurated the commencement of the Digital Virtual Academy and reminded the participants of the meeting about the vision for the Digital Futures of the CTA and the scope and opportunities of the Digital Futures project.
The workshops are supported by Zeropoint Security Corp (Canada) and the e-Government Academy (EGA) Foundation (Estonia).
This project is part of the Supporting Tibetan Governance Program funded by the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) of the United States in partnership with ZeroPoint Security Corp.
