  • e-Government development and government effectiveness: A reciprocal relationship

    Wallis, Joseph; Zhao, Fang (Edith Cowan University, Research Online, Perth, Western Australia, 2017-01-01)
    To explain the positive reciprocal relationship found between e-Government Development and Government Effectiveness, a five-level model is constructed to track the paths that must be taken for public servants to be trusted to enact e-Government Development. A combination of reform, discretionary and adaptive contributions by public servants can lead to the establishment of public service bargains at the third level. ‘Post-New Public Management’ reforms and exceptional adaptive leadership are, however, required to move countries to the fourth level where public servants are trusted to act across the range of role identities required to enact e-Government.
  • E-Government's Role in Shifting the Paradigm of Performance in the Public Sector

    Noto, L. (2015)
    E-government implementation offers great potential to improve the efficacy of public administration. Digital innovation provides instruments to overcome the simple market orientation suggested by New Public Management and to integrate the approach with a strong social component. An imperative prerequisite is rethinking public policy design by involving citizens in order to devise customised solutions and services. The mere implementation of innovative tools without public support is one of the main causes of failure of e-government projects around the world.
 The existence of networks influencing the individual decisional model and the willingness of citizens to participate in policy design were often ignored. Nowadays the second generation of project design is being implemented. A reflection on the new role of managers can be useful in avoiding future false moves. The case study of Italian reform of public administration offers a good example to highlight criticalities in innovating a system of rules.
 The approach to these analyses is a multi-method approach. The emerging Network Theory will provide the framework for a System Dynamics model that encloses the phenomena of implementation and adoption of e-government services.

  • The Impact of E-government on Corruption Control

    Lee, Eunhee (UKnowledge, 2017-01-01)
    This study examines while each country has proceeded E-government, how E-government influences on corruption control by using national level panel data. After analyzing the result, both E-government development index and E-participation index showed positive effects on corruption control. However, the comparison analysis of OECD and non-OECD countries on corruption control through E-government shows that it has a great impact on not OECD countries but only non-OECD countries. This results show that the various goals pursued by E-government have a positive effect on corruption control. However, this research presents that the influence of E-government corruption control on OECD countries, which have already well-developed in all fields, is little. Therefore, the results of this study suggest that corruption control can be made more efficient through the activation of E-government in non-OECD countries where the development level of the country is relatively low compared to the OECD countries.
  • ICT Policy and perspectives of Human Development in Latin America: the Peruvian Experience

    Edgar Ferrer (Universidad Alberto Hurtado, 2009)
    Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has been considered as an important element for economic growth and social development. However, no consensus seems to exist about the proper roles and actual effects of information technology in dynamics of socioeconomic development. Many countries around the world have seen great opportunities in implementing initiatives that would increase the ICT adoption in different areas, especially in the government. Developed countries have exploited their ICT infrastructure for implementing success projects, while developing countries are launching their own ICT based initiatives hoping to achieve a considerable impact in the society in a relatively short term. The present research is oriented to study the implications of ICT policies for enhancing the quality of life in developing countries, especially in the Latin American countries. This paper reviews some important efforts in the deployment of ICT initiative in Peru. The contribution from a research perspective is to report on some key lessons learnt and propose a set of recommendations for future implementations in similar developing nations' environments.
