Where is e Government headed? The future and relevance for organisations.
Developments in e-Government are taking place on a wide basis throughout the public service. The Government's intentions in this regard were set out in the second Action Plan for the Information Society. In that context it is desirable to raise awareness and promote engagement throughout the public service in the e-Government modernisation process. This strategy of internal communication will unfold as the development of e-Government deepens, and impacts on service delivery, policy formulation and internal administration.
A briefing was held in Dublin Castle on Thursday 27th June for top management and leaders from the public service to put e-Government in context as a business modernisation process. The briefing addressed the changing environment within which the public service is operating and highlighted the need to support and lead change at both organisational and individual level. The e-Government agenda is an integral part of the agenda of public service modernisation and is not about IT.
The speakers at the briefing session were as follows:
Civil Service Commission- Patricia O'Grady
Reach - Seamus O'Farrell
Southern Health Board - Ursula O'Sullivan
Donegal County Council - Tony Kiernan
