This study investigated the provision of information and communication technology (ICT): A modern tool for management in Cross River State Universities.  Ex-post factor design was adopted. To guide the study two hypotheses were formulated. Data collection was carried out using self constructed instrument called information and communication technology education management questionnaire (ICTEMQ). The hypotheses were tested with independent t-test statistical technique at 0.05 alpha level and 166 degree of freedom. Results obtained showed that there is a significant difference between federal and stated universities in their provision of ICT facilities in respect to students’ record management, staff record management and financial record management, research and publication, teaching and examination management. It is recommended that Nigerian Government at federal and state level should make more funds available to universities to provide more ICT facilities for educational management.
