First Electronic Construction Permit System in Kenya to Launch in Kiambu

By Baraka Jefwa

The first electronic construction permit system in Kenya, dubbed the Electronic Development Application Management System (e-DAMS), is set to be officially launched in Kiambu County this week.

This was announced by Douglas Gicho, ICT Director, Kiambu County, who was speaking at the Sixth CIO 100 Symposium and Awards, where he pointed out that the system would be launched on the 17th of November.

According to Gicho, the Electronic Development Application Management System (e-DAMS) will change the way communities across the County of Kiambu do business, by speeding the construction permit process for the people most involved--builders, inspectors, and plan reviewers--and providing better and more timely information to decision makers, managers, and staff throughout the County of Kiambu.
