E-Government: eGEEC 2005 Romania
E-Government can be defined as the use of information and communications technologies by governments to enhance the range and quality of information and services provided to citizens, businesses, civil society organizations, and other government agencies in an efficient, cost-effective and convenient manner, making government processes more transparent and accountable and strengthening democracy.
The goal of e-Government is not merely to computerize governmental records; to the contrary, the ultimate goal of e-Government is to transform government. Indeed, successful e-Government is at most 20% technology and at least 80% about people, processes, and organizations.
