Abstract

Electronic Government applications have been the focus of hundreds of local and national government
administrations all over the world during the past decade. The emphasis of most of these applications lies in their effort to
improve the experience of the user in interacting with public administration services and to minimise waiting times in
completing transactions public services and citizens. Early applications were relying mainly on the speed and simplicity
of submitting a request by the user while most of the work beyond the web based interaction was carried out as in the era
before the introduction of the web based applications. The benefits from such endeavours have been short lived as citizens
are looking for real enhancements in they way public administration serves their needs and responds to their requests.
The authors argue that for e-government applications to succeed changes would have to be effected in the way public
administration organizes itself and how it utilizes information management systems to respond to user / citizen
requirements including and addressing the goals of all stakeholders involved.
Currently the number of successful applications to that end is quite low when compared to the projects implemented so
far. The authors propose steps that would maintain the focus of future implementations in doing so.
