Wanted: Service Provider For Govt’s Mega Digital Platform ‘iGOT Karmayogi’
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modis’s signature Karmayogi project is all set for expansion. Now, the government is looking for an experienced service provider to run its mega iGOT Karmayogi online platform. It needs to be scaled up to serve the training needs of over two crore officials. So far, only 1.52 lakh officials have been onboarded on the platform.
According to an exclusive report in News18, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) will be devoting the financing it has received from the World Bank for ‘Public Service Capability Enhancement’. The new service provider will start the job on January 30, 2023, for five years.
“Mission Karmayogi initiative is currently implemented on the iGOT Karmayogi platform, on Sunbird – an open-source learning solution, made in India and made for India. The iGOT Karmayogi digital platform will scale to serve needs of over 2 crore officials. With necessary configurability and flexibility to provide users with anytime – anywhere – any device access, the platform will democratize learning and enable learners to pursue lifelong learning,” according to a government document outlining the expansion plan for PM’s signature Karmayogi project accessed by News18.
“By design, the digital platform for iGOT Karmayogi will emit data continuously and in real-time, which will provide all stakeholders with a single source of truth and minimise information asymmetry in the ecosystem,” the document says.
The two crore officials that iGOT Karmayogi will cater to involve all central and state government officials and those of PSUs.
