How eGovernment can transform business climates...

eGovernment systems can bring new transparency and efficiency to a full spectrum of public sector registration, reporting, and oversight functions.  Examples of "B2G" (Business-to-Government) interactions that can be simplified through online systems are:

  • Virtual “one-stop shops” for issuance of incentives
  • Land registry databases
  • Licensing and permitting systems, including spectrum auction and telecommunications license issuance
  • Online company registry systems
  • Voucher systems to widen access to new learning and eHealthcare services
  • Visas and work permits; and
  • Land development concession tendering systems.

Yet many countries and localities have experienced delays in realizing these benefits. Key factors holding back eGovernment in the past have included:

  • High costs to taxpayers of deploying eGovernment solutions;
  • Past problems in assuring the interoperability of eGovernment systems; and
  • Corruption and delays in contract awards and implementation resulting from fierce “winner-take-all” struggles among eGovernment solution providers.

To overcome these problems, the Openworld Institute is developing a range of innovative and widely-replicable responses.
