Development of a Model for e-Government IT Integration Management (2010)


Ref: ict0039

This final year dissertation is concerned with issues faced by UK councils in today’s e-Government IT integrated services arena. These issues concern the disparate views that UK councils have regarding the management of e-Government IT integration projects. The management principles behind what makes a successful IT integration project such as project management best practices, financial support, links to other online resources provided by central government, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) strategy and public opinion are the main issues surrounding UK councils and their involvement into e-Government activities. A number of primary e-Government service delivery models are described such as Government-to-Citizen or Government-to-Customer (G2C), Government-to-Business (G2B) and Government-to-Government (G2G). G2C helps in the provision of information about government and its activities for citizens. Moreover, G2G provides information for other levels of government and its employees whereas G2B provides information for businesses about government. The research is based on primary qualitative research whereby a questionnaire is distributed in electronic format to explore the different ways e-Government IT integration projects are managed within UK councils. The responses are used to develop a model, the e-Government Integration Model (e-GIM), which is presented and explained as the union of the five components highlighting the necessity to introduce an IT integration model for e-Government derived from both the council and customer/public perspectives. In this way, it is suggested that an IT integration project can be managed more effectively. Management principles, relationships and best practices defined within e-GIM are then presented to UK council representatives to indicate the extent to which e-GIM is valid for small to large size councils.
