Egypt to undergo e-government review
OECD to conduct e-government peer review to guide further policy implementation
The Egyptian government has announced that it's e-government initiatives will undergo a peer review, conducted by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The review, which was announced yesterday by Egypt's Deputy Minister of State for Administrative Development, His Excellency Dr. Ashraf Hassan Abdelwahab, will provide an objective assessment on the country's e-government programs, to help guide further development and improve existing implementations.
Italy will finance the review, the first such OECD peer review in the MENA region, with support from the OECD.
Three peer reviewers who have their own practical e-government experience will be appointed, to then conduct a systematic review process of qualitative and quantitative factors in e-government implementation, which attempts to assess the state of e-government programs, identify barriers to implementation and suggest future steps to take.
The OECD Secretariat supports the review process by providing the analytical framework, producing documentation and analysis, stimulating discussion, upholding quality standards, and maintaining continuity of the historical memory of the process.
The review will also benefit other OECD member countries through sharing of its findings.
Work is expected to start on the review process early next year.
