Through quantitative case study data were collected through questionnaire and document review, complemented by chi-square analysis and the use of SPSS the data were processed for analysis. Findings from the study revealed that Presence of institutional support is important in influencing project sustainability. On the other hand, lack of institutional support may lead to unsustainable projects and project failure. Also, the finding revealed that organizational environmental is crucial in project sustainability as they can have direct or indirect impact. Stable environments and especially internal environment have a direct impact on the environmental sustainability. Furthermore, the study revealed that organizational culture plays a crucial role in determining the success of ICT projects in an organization and that an organization that believes in ICT will essentially invest heavily in ICT and therefore lead to its sustainability. Moreover, the study noted that there is a progress in the establishment of national ICT frameworks and policies as well as plans in most of learning institution, which is quite impressive.
