Additional Information:

‘E-government is a way of tapping unrealised potential for high quality government in New Zealand. It enables government agencies to separately and collectively lift their performance and deliver better results through using information and technology in new, more collaborative, ways.

E-government delivers better results by adapting government to the environment of the information age and the Internet. The public has invested hugely in the information, technology, and processes used by government, as well as in people and public management systems. E-government makes the best of this investment to deliver improved services to New Zealanders.

Technological change is only part of achieving this goal, and the Internet will not fully replace all other way government relates to people. Technology does not guarantee better public sector performance on its own. Success also depends on making ongoing improvements to the design, operation, and culture of the public sector, so that it can better respond to the changing demands of New Zealanders.

E-government is best understood in the context of: the Government’s broader goals to improve public management; what New Zealanders (people and business) want form e-government; public sector ethics, values and standards; and new thinking about how service delivery should be electronically enabled’.
