  • 3. Remembering the Benefits of the e-Government A good e-Government level assures the following benefits:
    • Better and more flexible access (24x7 electronically) to government services:
      • Information is clearly organized according to the prospective user ( ‘citizen’, ‘business’ and ‘government’)
      • Users kept informed about last news and events since they are shown at a glance .
      • ‘ Help’ and ‘feedback’ options are accessible to solve any doubt
    • There is only one single counter or online “one-stop shopping” for public services
    • More agile service delivery
    • More transparency of the policies and legislation
    • Reference site for people living abroad of the community
    For citizens
  • 3. Benefits of the e-Government
    • Promotion of the government making known the National Governance Plan.
    • More accurate information for better decision making
    • Cost savings: reuse and share of the existing IT assets for new offerings
    • Redeploy services among different agencies thanks to the faster service delivery
    • Definition and control of the service level agreements   
    • Automation of the processes and improvement of the services by integrating the channels, processes and services and making a better use of the resources
      • For the Government
    • Efficiency gains: reduction of the bureaucracy, paperwork and processing time by shifting from paper-based to Web-based approval processes.
    • This means: free time to do other things and the feeling of the work well done .
    • Aggregation of the information held in multiple locations by creating a unique record used by all the systems (regardless of the programming language).
    For the Government employees
  • 3. Benefits of the e-Government
    • Knowledge sharing about data and decisions made by other countries
    • Better use of the information provided by the E-participation
    • Interaction among the citizens which increase the overall economic activity of the country.
    • Increase of the tourism thanks to the knowledge about the country by other OCP Network members
    • Maintenance and continuous update of the platform that guarantee the technology and functionalities are always upgraded.
    Together with the general benefits offered by e-government, OCP offers certain benefits derived from the OCP Network and the Knowledge Sharing capability :

    • .Fifth priority
    Even though most benefits and opportunities are aligned (meaning that achieving one often helps achieve the other), it is important to define priorities, both for OCP and for Local Governments, in order to focalize efforts and investments.

  • 4. Remmebering the Challenges
    • The main challenges to face to assure e-government success:
    • Defining a LDA with the strategy and temporal plan
    • Convincing leaders and the rest of employees to take part
    • Ch anging management processes
    • Developing human capital and life long learning
    • Provisioning of the adequate ICT infrastructure
    • Seeking and establishing the collaboration with private and public organizations
    • Defining new policies and legislation
    • Despite of the challenges, it is a need to move to the e-Government :
    • enhanced access to government services
    • better data for government decision making
    • greater efficiency for government processes and employees
    The challenge is not about introducing a new type of service, but about reinventing the old : how to best perform the processes Government has performed for decades, in the electronic age .
    • For the sake of decreasing public employees uncertainty about what changes e-government means for them, it will be necessary to:
    • Communicate in a clear and transparent way , how transition and migration processes will be made
    • It is highly recommended to involve employees in the e-government by:
    • A rewarding planning
    4. Remembering the Obstacles
    • Loss of confidentiality
    • Increased control by government
    • Distrust on the security of the Internet
    Citizens’ fears
    • In order to increase citizens’ trust in electronic transactions , it must be developed:
    • laws for personal and confidential data protection
    • authentication systems
    • The pressure from users/customers,
    • Increased control on individual performance
    • Job cuts
    Employees’ fears
