The Digital Transformation Activity (DTA) is a robust five-year initiative, backed by a $150 million investment, aimed at enhancing Ukraine’s digital prowess and building resilient systems for a secure and prosperous future. The endeavor is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and UK International Development (UK Dev).
DTA is committed to transforming Ukraine’s digital landscape to achieve three pivotal objectives: economic revitalization, transparency in reconstruction, and democratic governance, both during the ongoing war and beyond. These goals collectively strive to establish an inclusive, transparent, and efficient digital ecosystem, stimulate economic growth, enhance administrative efficiency, and foster a strong bond between citizens and the government in Ukraine.
In the quest for a resilient Ukrainian economy, digital technologies play a crucial role. DTA is leading the charge in economic rejuvenation by advocating for investments in digital economic infrastructure. The program is instrumental in streamlining and digitizing export-related processes, bolstering the development of small and medium-sized enterprises, and nurturing a conducive business environment in Ukraine.
Transparency in reconstruction is a vital component for Ukraine’s sustainable recovery. DTA ensures this by advocating for digital management of recovery and reconstruction projects in wartime and post-war Ukraine. The program also fortifies the e-procurement ecosystem to enhance fund oversight and ensure fairness and accountability.
Digitization is a key driver for effective and democratic governance in Ukraine. DTA is committed to enhancing the availability and usability of open data and leveraging digital technologies in anti-corruption efforts, fostering a culture of transparency and accountability. To this end, DTA supports the Diia ecosystem to expedite the roll-out of new e-services for individuals and businesses alike. The program also aims to improve digital literacy, ensure equitable access, and encourage civic participation in the digital transformation process.
DTA is delivered by a skilled consortium led by Eurasia Foundation and comprised of East Europe Foundation, Better Regulation Delivery Office, Institute of Analytics and Advocacy, Kyiv School of Economics, Open Contracting Partnership, Social Boost, Transparency International Ukraine, and Women in Digital Transformation. This formidable group of Ukrainian and American partners brings to the table decades of experience working in Ukraine and numerous well-established partnerships with the government, private sector, and civil society.
To deliver results, DTA collaborates directly with the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the Ministry of Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, and the Ministry of Economy, as well as businesses, technology companies, local governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions, and the citizens of Ukraine.
