DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR POLITICAL PARTIES

ABSTRACT

This research focused on design and implementing a management information system that will solve the challenges faced by political parties and INEC commission, in terms of effective administrative management and project implementation among others. It started with the execution of a thorough investigation and analysis of the manual system and finally to the design and implementation of the new system. The release of this new system will solve the shortcomings of the existing system by reducing time, stress and resources spent while using the manual system.

 INTRODUCTION

Management Information System (MIS) is a system or a process that provides the information necessary to manage an organization effectively. MIS and the information it generates are generally considered essential components of prudent and reasonable business/organizational decisions. MIS should have a clearly defined frame work of guidelines, polices or practices, standards and procedures for the organization or institution Michael, T.G (2009).

An information system (IS) is any combination of information technology and people’s activities using that technology to support operations, management, and decision-making. In a very broad sense, the term information system is frequently used to refer to the interaction between people, algorithmic processes, data and technology. In this sense, the term is used to refer not only to the information and communication technology (ICT) an organization uses, but also to the way in which people interact with this technology in support of business processes.

Alter (2002) argues that an information system is a special type of work system. A work system is a system in which humans and/or machines perform work using resources (including ICT) to produce specific products and/or services for customers. An information system is a work system whose activities are devoted to processing (capturing, transmitting, storing, retrieving, manipulating and displaying) information.

Throughout the 1970s this was largely limited to files, file maintenance, and the life cycle management of paper-based files, other media and records. With the proliferation of information technology starting in the 1970s, the job of information management took on a new light, and also began to include the field of data maintenance (Neo et al, 2003).
