e-Government evolution has been based on the implementation of ambitious public programmes, that reflect Government strategic planning and the respective political frameworks. E-Government programmes concern extensive funding for telecommunication networks, software applications, information systems, training, change management, interoperability frameworks etc. Several complex projects are generated by these programmes, which involve multiple disciplines and stakeholders. In this context, project management is necessary to secure project success.

Today, project management standards and theory provide with useful instructions and tools all major industries –i.e. construction, engineering, software, healthcare- and classify projects respectively, suggesting that e-Government projects could structure a district project category. Indeed, most e-Government projects require special knowledge and disciplines; they are large scale and cross-organization or even supranational, while at the same time many are innovative and politically ambitious.  Moreover, e-Government project success demands social adoption beyond successful project implementation.




This issue aims to present recent theories and practices regarding management of e-Government projects. More specifically, it aims to answer the following questions:

- Do e-Government projects concern a district novel industry and in this context they have to be managed differently ?

- Do project management standards (i.e., PMBOK, ICB etc.) and methods (i.e. PRINCE) are efficient for managing an e-Government project or they must be extended accordingly?

- How public organizations measure e-Government progress and success?  Are existing indexes  and models effective for e-Government assessment?

- Which are the best practices derived from various international practices regarding e-Government project management? (various case studies could be presented)

- How differently public organizations deal with e-Government project management? More specifically, which aspects and attributes of a project a large organization does prioritize (i.e., the OECD, the European Commission, the UN) in comparison to a small organization (i.e. a Municipality)?
