Why GEA was developed

The GEA was developed to ensure coherence and unified approach to acquisition, deployment, management and operation of ICTs across state agencies, in order to promote service integration, adaptability and cost savings through economies of scale in ICT investments. The GEA Framework provides a blueprint for improving Government programmes and plans, by aligning the business processes, information flows, and technology consistently across and throughout the Government.
The vision of GEA is to provide seamless integration for citizen services empowered through inter-departmental collaboration through ICT standardization.
