With the intention to utilize e-governance as a tool for bringing better transparency, responsiveness and accountability in governance, the Government of Odisha has mandated  that all government departments will earmark two per cent of their Annual Plan budget or one per cent of their overall budget (whichever is higher) for IT spending so as to provide services through the electronic mode. The decision to earmark funds is in line with the promise made in the state ICT (Information and Communication Technology) policy-2014. The policy says that the state government will introduce e-governance in every department so that the citizens will avail most of the government services locally without any hitches. The departments will prepare their Annual e-Governance Action plan with monthly e­ transactions and milestones containing details of investment planned in the IT infrastructure, application development, business process re-engineering, capacity building of the personnel at different levels that would make the department's e-Governance initiatives sustainable in a long run.

In order to implement and manage the above mentioned initiatives, the E & IT Department has empaneled following agencies as Consultants and Third Party Auditors(TPA).
