• Implementing E-Government

    Pages: 107

    This 107 page paper is a plan for introducing e-government into one department of a government. The paper examines the needs, the current position and the shortfall then makes recommendations for hardware and software choices and configurations and uses an approach of requirements engineering. This is a full proposal and plan including a schedule. The example used is GEC from Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates government. The paper also includes a comprehensive literature review. The bibliography cites 46 sources.
