  1. 1. An Inconvenient Truth 2.0 or How to Mind the Gap Matt Poelmans, Director Burgerlink (Citizenlink), The Netherlands Smart Government Australia Melbourne, September 14-15, 2010
  2. 3. STRATEGY - Every government organization is responsible for its own service quality, but together they are responsible for the performance of government as a whole. Moreover improvement of public service delivery (and the democratic process as well) cannot come about without involving citizens. An Inconvenient Truth 2.0, or How to Mind the Gap
  3. 4. MISSION - Citizenlink, an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of the Interior, helps government to match its actual supply with the people's demand for better services. It runs from 2008-2010 as part of the Dutch eGovernment strategy and is operated by ICTU, the national implementation organization for ICT and government.

  4. 5. ACTIVITIES - Citizenlink supports innovation and cooperation in three fields: service quality, customer satisfaction and citizen involvement. 1. Promote service quality by stimulating the use of the generic eCitizen Charter and sectoral Quality codes; 2. Measure customer satisfaction by carrying out annually a national survey about life events and developing a local application; 3. Stimulate citizen involvement by developing participation tools (for information, agenda setting, rating and monitoring) and organizing an annual awards scheme.
