Mauritius - e-Government Interoperability Framework Version 1.0

This document has been prepared on the request of the e-Government Task Force to clearly formulate policies and specifications for the interoperability of government information systems in the context of the e-government initiative.

Improving Government Interoperability: A capability framework for government managers

This paper presents a framework for governments as they begin to move beyond the vision of a more effective government to the reality. Governments are finding that a typical hierarchical bureaucracy is not necessarily the best form of organization to meet citizen and other demands. Rather, governments are finding that a network form of organization where new groupings of persons and organizations must learn to work together and share information, exchange knowledge, and respond to demands in new ways is more appropriate.
