Description : Electronic government (e-government) involves providing service to citizens, businesses, and government agencies electronically. The scope of this e-book on e-government is to provide an insight to research that is being undertaken in the e-government area. After a vigorous review process, we have selected nine papers and one expert opinion. The selected articles provide an in-depth understanding of critical issues involved in e-government.
Description : E-Government is more about government than about “e”. This study explores the reasons for implementing e-government, the barriers to implementation, and how to implement.
Description : It seems that only a short time ago, numerous academics and practitioners in the field were somewhat blinded by the successes of the dot-com developments in the private sector, and some of them enthusiastically claimed that public administration was to be revolutionized. But that did not happen, and also the dot-com soap bubble burst. This suggests that there is much yet to be learned about innovation in public administration, especially about innovations at the cornerstones of technological and institutional transformations. New and more fully developed formulations of theory into practice are needed. The goal of the editors of this book is to contribute to some aspects of the understanding of e-government. In order to understand electronic government, one has to scrutinize the various environments and contexts in which e-government is developed and implemented. As such, it builds upon the biological and environmental lines of reasoning that have been suggested by authors like Bonnie Nardi and Vicky O'Day, and Thomas Davenport and Laurence Prusak.
Description : While not specifically defined, Electronic Government has become a common term to describe all of the processes, administrative and democratic, that combine to constitute public sector operations. Electronic Government: Design, Applications and Management examines the changes faced by the public sector, as the use of IT significantly increases. This book, geared toward practitioners, professionals, decision makers and students strives to examine the challenges and opportunities involved in the implementation and use of IT into organizations.
Description : In accordance with the President's management agenda, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has sponsored initiatives to promote expansion of electronic gov't. -- the use of information technology, particularly Web-based Internet applications, to enhance gov't. services. Each initiative demands a high degree of collaboration among organizations. For four of these initiatives, the GAO was asked to determine, among other things, their implementation progress and the extent of collaboration among agencies and other parties involved. GAO determined that all four of the e-government initiatives that it reviewed have made progress in meeting the objectives and milestones of their early phase. Charts and tables.
Description : This handy guide and supplemental text examines trends in information and communication technology (ICT) that impact the day-to-day operations of federal, state, and local government. It seeks to improve service delivery, human resource administration, political participation, education, and citizen input (e-democracy), while at the same time recognizes that with ICT’s great promise comes great peril in the form of erosion of personal privacy (e-surveillance). Through the use of numerous examples and exercises, Robert Cropf helps students and practitioners alike explore the ways technological change shapes public policy, develop useful tools and skills for working in or with e-government, and understand the role that social media plays in helping to spark political, economic, and social change.
