This project report sought to establish the extent to which the Kenya National ICT Policy has been enforced within the Kenya government by targeting sampled Kenya Government ministries where ICT has been embraced under the strength of the existing national ICT policy. The objective was to find out if the existing Kenya National ICT Policy has been embraced within the various government ministries and to what extent. The motivation behind this study resulted from the fact that Kenya has in place a national ICT policy that is expected to act as a guide as the country seeks to achieve its objectives for vision 2030. Qualitative research method was employed to gather required data for analysis as it is known to be descriptive in nature. The primary data collection tool was an open-ended questionnaire as this gave respondents a chance to air their views conclusively without being guided. An analysis of the results was done using MS Excel which grouped similar responses together and using five point Likert scale for ease of analysis. Four ministries which are in possession of the Kenya National ICT policy were sampled. It became clear that the Kenya National ICT policy has not been embraced fully and that as much as the sampled ministries possessed the policy they only used it partially. These findings added to the existing knowledge on ICT policy development and eventual implementation by curving a path through which the policy can be enforced. Future research on this area would be guided by the outcome of the report for findings showed that there are a good number of Kenya government ministries where the policy is still unheard of while in the ones sampled little sense had been made of the Kenya National ICT policy.
