Summary on Grant Application Form
E-government has rapidly become a political imperative at local, national and international level. With the growth of the Internet and public access to information, government agencies at all levels rushed to publish strategies in the mid-1990s that created a muddle of information and policy with no clearly defined audience. Nonetheless, between 2002-2006, e-Government projects will cost UK taxpayers 7.4bn and failures of may have disastrous consequences.At present evaluation is mainly volumetric or case study coverage with only vague notions of benefit to the citizen. Clearly, to make adoption more successful, there is a need to better understand the issues surrounding e-Government; in particular, gaining a clearer insight into the barriers, benefit realisations, risk management or mitigation, and cost management, which together provide decision makers with a realistic insight into e-Government infrastructure planning.The purpose of the e-GISE network will be to promote national debate and highlight research strategies to increase understanding of e-Government, and the processes involved in evaluating decisions surrounding human, organisational and technical components of information society technologies (IST). In particular, the network will explore IST strategies and their embedded mechanisms for evaluation and integration within government and the service or public sector.
