Commonly, results-oriented IT services having significant value can be achieved when IT initiatives are successfully aligned with organizational strategies. However, IT alignments in not-for-profit entities are problematic because, unlike financially driven for-profit entities, they operate in more complex sociopolitical contexts, with different mandates and non-financial goals. For example, although no two countries are alike, the underlying IT objectives for governments and their agencies are commonly summarized as: value realization, service delivery, efficiency and political return. Yet, value realization and service delivery that sustains IT strategic alignment with a government’s mission remains elusive; especially where ““IT” is understood to encompass the infrastructure as well as the capabilities and organisation that establish and support it.
