Afghanistan Information Management Services (AIMS) is one of the Afghan Non-governmental organizations under the structure of Ministry of Economy working for Government of Afghanistan.
AIMS mission is to serve the government of Afghanistan and broader humanitarian organizations in the area of information management and capacity building.
AIMS was initially established in 1997 to help the Afghanistan Government and the broader humanitarian community to work more efficiently through the provision of products and services in the field of Information Management (IM) particularly by building IM capacity of the government.
AIMS established as a NGO in June 2008, with its main office in Kabul. AIMS has distributed over 50,000 maps (topographic, road, administrative and thematic) and trained over 5,000 government employees from 23 ministries in basic English/computer programming, Geographic Information Systems
(GIS), use of global positioning systems (GPS) and in database management, technology awareness and project management.
AIMS capacity building activities are implemented in a context where capacities in administration, communications and management are low, if not non-existent. Through capacity building of civil servants and formal training in information management technology and application, AIMS has raised the level of competency of government staff, increased workflow efficiency and enhanced planning capacities of key government ministries. The relevance is high, and it will remain so, as it contributes to improved governance, transparency, accountability and efficiency in development.
The support its five regional offices have given to the local governments is invaluable. In its endeavor to provide world class service, AIMS has developed and institutionalized mission-critical software applications for institutions of the Government of Afghanistan (GoA), and provided, in line with development information management best practice, guidelines and procedures to enhance effectiveness and efficiency of government operations.
AIMS continued to strengthen its own capacity and effectiveness as an organization that can sustain itself through project based services both for the public and private sectors. The continued needs for AIMS services has lead to development of the Transition and Sustainability Plan for the
AIMS to be an independent service provider from the year 2008 and the AIMS will focus on building its international capacity to enhance its quality services and capacity in 2007.
