Abstract

E-government is the use of ICT to transform government by making it more accessible, effective, efficient and accountable. This ranges from providing wider access to government information and promoting civic engagement to providing development opportunities. Following political commitment for reform, one of the important elements is availability of proper infrastructure including telecommunications infrastructure as well as legal framework. Another element is changing and improving the process in which the government interacts with the governed. In other words automation of existing processes. If these contributory elements are not reviewed properly inefficiencies and waste of resources will be the ultimate result of any e-government initiative. Therefore selecting and applying a suitable model for e-government implementation is essential. Another important issue is civic participation. There are number of barriers which keep citizens away from participating in electronic government. This is particularly evident in cases of developing countries. To overcome these barriers and identify participating elements of electronic government model it is possible to adapt electronic models from other businesses. The main objective of this paper is to examine the applicability of e-business models to e-government by identifying and evaluating those aspects that could be applicable to e-government, particularly focusing on applications for developing countries.
