Policies and Strategies for Digital Government Minitrack

Permanent URI for this collection

This minitrack offers a multidisciplinary forum to present cases and discuss theories associated with the design, management and evaluation of the policies and strategies deployed to support, facilitate and promote digital government. The HICSS minitrack on Policies and Strategies for Digital Government invites submissions that contribute to the analysis of the challenges faced by governments when formulating e-government policies. Specifically the minitrack focuses on the effects of ICT implementations which are designed to transform government organisations, public sector management and the functioning of public institutions in general. We invite and encourage the submission of case studies which demonstrate best practices in the design, management and evaluation of e-government policies and strategies. In addition to intra government policies, the minitrack welcomes contributions exploring the issues associated with the design and deployment of policies and strategies that change the nature of the interactions between government and citizens, private sector organisations and NGOs.

Minitrack topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Policy and governance challenges arising from the adoption of ICTs in public administration at the local, state, and national level;
  • Public Service co-creation and co-production;
  • e-Democracy and e-Participation;
  • e-Procurement policies and strategies;
  • Outsourcing strategies in the public sector;
  • Public policy issues in Digital Government;
  • Digital government in developing countries;
  • The impact on ICT on government efficiency; effectiveness; transparency; and accountability;
  • Interoperability policies: Legal, organizational, semantic, and technical layers;
  • Legal and judicial transformation associated with ICTs deployments;
  • e-justice;
  • Digital Governance;
  • Privacy and data protection policies and strategies;
  • Interoperability: Legal, Organizational, Semantic, Technical Layers

    Public-Private Collaboration in the Emergence of a National Electronic Identification Policy: The Case of NemID in Denmark
    ( 2017-01-04) Medaglia, Rony ; Hedman, Jonas ; Eaton, Ben
    Governments envisioning large-scale national e-government policies increasingly draw on collaboration with private actors, yet the relationship between dynamics and outcomes of public-private partnership (PPP) is still unclear. The involvement of the banking sector in the emergence of a national electronic identification (e-ID) in Denmark is a case in point. Drawing on an analysis of primary and secondary data, we adopt the theoretical lens of collective action to investigate how transformations over time in the convergence of interests, the interdependence of resources, and the alignment of governance models between government and the banking sector shaped the emergence of the Danish national e-ID. We propose a process model to conceptualize paths towards the emergence of public-private collaboration for digital information infrastructure – a common good. \

    E-gov Transparency Implementation Using Multi-agent System: a Brazilian Study-Case in Lawsuit Distribution Process
    ( 2017-01-04) José Albuquerque, Denis ; Tavares Nunes, Vanessa ; Ghedini Ralha, Célia ; Cappelli, Claudia
    Electronic government (e-gov) processes need transparency in order to allow citizens to access, understand and verify valuable information in a democratic society. As a crosscutting characteristic, transparency should be present in different e-gov perspectives, such as business processes, information, business rules and information systems. Thus, in this article, we present a multi-agent system (MAS) to implement transparent lawsuit distribution process. We demonstrate that the MAS paradigm emphasizes the organizational operating environment and the information systems alignment, being adequate to implement process transparency under a Brazilian study-case in lawsuit distribution that used real data from the Superior Labor Court of Brazil. The Tropos agent-oriented software development methodology is used to define the hard and soft goals of agents. The MAS architecture and the prototype were defined and implemented using JADE Framework.
