Case 2 E-Government

...Case 2 E-Government Increasing Productivity and Efficiency with Could and Mobile Technologies Question 1. Why are government agencies increasingly interested in using cloud and mobile technologies to accomplish their missions? Government agencies have found they could deliver the information and service by IT solutions. When using the IT in a more efficient and coordinated way, government agencies could accomplish more on tighter budgets. Using cloud computing, the federal government not only reduced the costs, but also created its large data centers. Overall, cloud and mobile technologies help a lot to improve productivity and efficiency. Question 2. Why is security even more important for government agencies than businesses in the private sector? Actually, the government should defend the country and with it, its citizens and corporations. The government agencies may have access to information and data including businesses in the private sector, even individuals in order to protect the national security. The national security is related to everyone in the country. If the country is not safe, the citizens could not live easily either. As the importance of the national security, the government agencies’ servers are usually targets for terrorists and unfriendly foreign governments. So creating a secure system and developing policies and procedures to protect the nation’s IT infrastructure from cyber threats are challenging, however, also very necessary. To some extent,......

Citizen Participation of E-Government

...| | | | 1. 안전한 전자정부를 위한 법제도 E-signatures Legislation passed in the U.S., Canada, U.K., E.U., Australia, New Zealand, and most nations around the world establishes the legality of e-signatures. Documents signed online with legally compliant e-signature software are as valid and binding as traditional pen-and-paper documents. E-signatures have been upheld in numerous court cases and, in many situations, prove to be more defensible than pen signatures. This legal strength is due to the robust authentication data captured by online signature software, which provides digital evidence of who signed a document, as well as when, where, and how they did it. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (U.S) The E-SIGN Act, passed by Congress in June, 2000, is the premier federal law ensuring the legality of documents executed with e-signatures in the United States. The E-SIGN Act states that contracts with electronic signatures may not be denied legal effect or ruled unenforceable because they were created digitally. Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (U.S.) The National Conference of Commissioners of Uniform State Laws developed the UETA in order to bring consistency to potentially varying state laws regarding e-signatures and online document execution. Now adopted by 47 states thus far, the UETA works in unison with the federal E-SIGN Act to protect the legal enforceability of electronic contracts.

E-Government Systems Quality in Kenya: Possibility on Synergy

...e-Government Systems Quality in Kenya: Possibility on Synergy by Godfrey M karimi Email: goddie2007@yahool.com Abstract For some time the government and the private sectors have existed independently in the e-Government systems development and implementation. The two have often interacted on the outsourcing by the government and the implementation of tenders by the private sector. The government has been charged with the provision of the benchmarks and the contracted body in the private sector being required to deliver as per the set requirements. This leaves the government solely responsible for the delivery of quality e-Government systems and the private sector upbeat to delivering as per the set benchmarks. However, the two parties exist in different environments and a more involving insight into the required deliverables would achieve higher results. A partnership between the two parties would be one of the possibilities of achieving an all round perspective in ensuring high quality systems, a greater acceptability by the end users and a more satisfactory solution provision to the existent problems in the government. Besides, such a partnership would create room for donor funding and as such a growth in the e-Government systems. Introduction e-Government is the use of ICT to provide information and improve the delivery of government services to the citizens using electronic means (Ong’ondo & Kamar, 2007). e-Government systems would be used in a number...

“Party Government” by E. E. Schattschneider

...“Party Government” by E. E. Schattschneider, the speaker focuses on the involvement of Federalist 10, regarding to political parties in the constitutional system and interest groups. Schattschneider describes the pro-party as those who “guarantee civil rights and establishes a system of party tolerance, the right to agitate and to organize,” (Page 171) while he describes the aspects of an anti-party as the separation of powers and federalism. He says that the constitutional system created a constitution that was pro-party in one sense and also anti-party. Later in page 171, Schattschneider says that “the Constitution made the rise of parties inevitable yet was incompatible with party government,” meaning the Constitution makes it difficult for parties to function. He also claims that interests groups don’t have the agreement of people and power to control the government. At the end, he describes the law of the imperfect political mobilization of interests as the result that every individual is torn by the diversity of their own interests, making an individual a member of many groups. Schattscheider’s overview of parties in a constitutional system in “Party Government” is connected to Madison’s famous Federalist paper 10. Madison focused on the Constitution establishing an effectual government that would break and control the dangers of a faction, but at the same time to form a popular government where people have opinions. To Madison, interests groups and parties were bad,...

E-Government in India: Opportunities and Challenges

...Monga, A. (2008). E-government in India: Opportunities and challenges, JOAAG, Vol. 3. No. 2 E-government in India: Opportunities and challenges Anil Monga1 Abstract Public administration, governed by bureaucratic structures built on rationale principles, that dominated the twentieth century, has failed to respond to the changing requirements of the present times. E-governance, which is a paradigm shift over the traditional approaches in public administration, means rendering of government services and information to the public using electronic means. This new paradigm has brought about a revolution in the quality of service delivered to the citizens. It has ushered in transparency in the governing process; saving of time due to provision of services through single window; simplification of procedures; better office and record management; reduction in corruption; and improved attitude, behavior and job handling capacity of the dealing personnel. The present study substantiates these theoretical assumptions about e-governance by analyzing some experiences at the local, state and federal levels of government in India.

E-Government in Developing Countries

...EJISDC (2004) 18, 1, 1-24 E – GOVERNMENT FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES Valentina (Dardha) Ndou Department of Business Administration University of Shkoder, Albania ndou@hotmail.com 1. INTRODUCTION The explosion of digital connectivity, the significant improvements in communication and information technologies and the enforced global competition are revolutionizing the way business is performed and the way organizations compete. A new, complex and rapidly changing economic order has emerged based on disruptive innovation, discontinuities, abrupt and seditious change. In this new landscape, knowledge constitutes the most important factor, while learning, which emerges through cooperation, together with the increased reliability and trust, is the most important process (Lundvall and Johnson, 1994). The competitive survival and ongoing sustenance of an organisation primarily depend on its ability to redefine and adopt continuously goals, purposes and its way of doing things (Malhotra, 2001). These trends suggest that private and public organizations have to reinvent themselves through ‘continuous non-linear innovation’ in order to sustain themselves and achieve strategic competitive advantage. The extant literature highlights the great potential of ICT tools for operational efficiency, cost reduction, quality of services, convenience, innovation and learning in private and public sectors. However, scholarly investigations have focused primarily on the...

Use of this equipment has enabled Government to carry out programs never before possible, and it has facilitated the provision of services more effectively and economically, thereby contributing significantly to the rising productivity in governmental operations.” (B.G. Schumacher, 1967, p. 80) In 1993, President William Jefferson Clinton requested an investigation on ways to improve the government as a part of his initiative to reduce the government spending. Vice President Al Gore started investigation that resulted in “The Gore Report on Reinventing Government: Creating a Government that Works Better and Costs Less”. President Clinton (2005) states that the “Rego” (Reinventing Government) “reduced federal workforce by more than 100,000 and eliminated 10,000 pages of federal personnel manuals” (p. 647-648) by 1995. According to USA.gov, in September 2000, an official U.S. web portal was launched under the name FirstGov.gov. President George W.
