© The Economist Intelligence Unit 2004 1 E-GOVERNMENT IN CENTRAL EUROPE RETHINKING PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION E-government in Central Europe: Rethinking public administration is an Economist Intelligence Unit white paper, sponsored by Oracle. The Economist Intelligence Unit bears sole responsibility for the content of this white paper. The EIU’s editorial team conducted the interviews, executed the quantitative analysis and wrote the paper. The findings and views expressed in this paper do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor. The research and analysis for this white paper drew on two main initiatives: The Economist Intelligence Unit built and populated a comprehensive and robust e- government rankings model covering 10 Central European countries and Turkey. EIU country analysts conducted secondary and primary research to generate scores for their respective markets, resulting in an overall ranking of Central European countries. The EIU also conducted in-depth interviews with direct participants in Central Europe’s e- government development, both in the region and in the European Commission. The author of the report was Ross O’Brien and the editor was Denis McCauley. Nicholas Redman of the Economist Intelligence Unit managed the population of the e-government rankings model and the generation of scores. Mike Kenny was responsible for design and layout. Our sincere thanks go to the interviewees for sharing their insights on this topic. August 2004 Preface

The Economist Intelligence Unit 2004 E-GOVERNMENT IN CENTRAL EUROPE RETHINKING PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION As part of a broader effort to encourage its citizens and businesses to go digital, the European Union is exhorting member governments to practice what they preach: to shift their own operations to electronic— and particularly online—platforms. Having signed on to ambitious goals of information society development as part of the EU accession process, most of the ten new and candidate EU members have taken up the e- government challenge with enthusiasm. The e-government agenda is being pursued throughout the world to one degree or another, but it has added significance in Central Europe. The region is just beginning to emerge from a period of far-reaching political and economic transformation following the collapse of repressive communist systems. For these countries, e-government is more than simply a new channel of delivering services; it offers an opportunity to achieve a quantum leap in transparency and efficiency of administration, which the region’s leaders have promised their citizens since the early 1990s.
