Nova Scotia’s Enterprise Standard
The Nova Scotia Government has implemented the AMANDA Software Suite as the provincial enterprise standard for all Licenses, Permits, Applications, Registrations, Inspections and other Case Management. Since 1999, these applications have supported thousands of internal government users and securely processed millions of citizen and business transactions. AMANDA is one of the most extensively used business applications in the Nova Scotia Government. AMANDA AccessPro is the latest module to be implemented by the Nova Scotia government.
Information Access and Privacy (IAP) Services is a division of the Information, Communications and Technology Services (ICTS) within the Department of Internal Services. The unit was established on April 1, 2015 as a result of the consolidation of all resources from multiple departments. We are responsible for the administration of the FOIPOP legislation on behalf of our client departments. Through strategic leadership and collaboration, we act as a corporate unit to help all government departments manage their operations for access and privacy.
We strive to balance the right of citizens to access information, with government’s obligation to protect the confidential and personal information about Nova Scotians that is in government’s custody and control.
