Nairobi is the capital and largest city of Kenya. The Nairobi City County is the creation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and successor of the defunct City Council of Nairobi. It operates under the auspices of the Cities and Urban Areas Act, The Devolved Governments Act and a host of other Acts. The Nairobi City County is charged with the responsibility of providing a variety of services to residents within its area of jurisdiction. These include the services that were hitherto provided by the defunct City Council and the ones that have been transferred from the national government.
The Nairobi City County (NCC) and the ICT Authority have initiated the Nairobi City County ICT Transformation Programme aimed at utilizing technology to improve citizen service delivery, increase efficiency and enhance revenue collection. This will be done through implementation and deployment of suitable ICT solutions at the county headquarters and its satellite offices.
