An quick examination of the role and of education management information systems in Mozambique. At the national level the initial evidence suggests that EMIS helps generate targets for policy frameworks. In addition EMIS supports the Ministry of Education and Culture to establish targets and objectives for their strategies, as well as helping them to monitor progress towards achieving them at the national level. However, it appears that links between information systems and planning are not so strong at other levels of the education, such TVET. Similarly, EMIS plays a limited role in supporting the planning process at the provincial level due to lack of funds and access to data at the local level.
