Jonathan N. Chimah | Chukwubuisi H. Chikwelu

Abstract: The Information Communication Technology (ICT) productivity paradox has generated considerable interest among practitioners, professionals, the theorists and especially economists. Because productivity is the fundamental economic measures of ICTs contribution, it should be closely examined at the micro level (unit, departments) or macro level (organizations, or institutions). Based on the above premise, this paper seeks to assess the ICT resources available in each unit of the Energy Research Centre; as well as how the units use the resources in terms of being fully utilized, partially used or not used at all. Observation and interview were the two instruments used in data collection. Recommendations are made based on the findings on the need to provide and use ICT resources in order to enhance productivity.
