The National Information Technology Authority-Uganda (NITA-U) was established as a statutory body under the National Information Technology Authority-Uganda Act 2009, with the aim of serving as a key player in the ICT sector. Its mandate is to coordinate, promote, and monitor IT development within the context of national social and economic development, with a vision as a “facilitator of a knowledge-based, globally competitive Uganda where social transformation and economic development are supported through IT-enabled services.”
Located about 700 meters from Entebbe-Kampala Highway near Lunyo Swamps in Entebbe, the project covers the development of an Information Technology/ Business Process Outsourcing (IT/BPO) park that aims to transfer knowledge from multinationals to local IT entrepreneurs, host local business incubation models, and create jobs. The IT Park will thus stimulate the start-up growth of technologically intensive and knowledge-based businesses, transfer skills, and help to facilitate the links between research and industrial communities.
On a land area of 87,805 m2, the park comprises the following buildings: IT innovation & incubation center; ICT Ministry offices; National Information Technology Authority; exhibitions & events center; convention center; training labs; integrated office complex for IT companies; banks; restaurants; lounges; shopping complex; indoor games building; outdoor games area; health club; lush green garden; utilities; and parking area for approximately 162 cars.
