Doctoral project


E-government, Electronic Government, or Digital Government is defined as interactions that take place between government and people in digital form. Defined narrowly as the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in a way that enhances the government services provided to businesses and citizens, including government organizations and their employees.

E-government in a broad sense has been practiced for 60 years, since the first use of the mainframe in the statistical office. Otherwise, we can imagine that E-government is only 20 years old. In any case, the use of E-government has been spreading worldwide since its inception and to this day. Several E-government projects are created every day, yet many of them fail. In 2013, Dawes wrote: “the failure rate of investments in ICTs to meet governmental needs remains high and consumes both resources and credibility”.

In 2014, a report claimed that 60% to 80% of E-government projects fail to meet their set goals, although little data is available. The failure of E-government projects is mainly caused by poor implementation, which in turn is the result of contradictions between the goals and needs for which these projects were set up and what is happening in reality. Therefore, there is a great need for methods, models, and/or decision aids that can help to check the results of start-up projects or to make decisions in the planning phase in order to increase the probability of success.

E-government system like any other Information System is a socio-technical system, composed of various components: software, hardware, telecommunications, data, people, and procedures. Considering the interactions between these components, particularly the management process and the human resources component, many ways could be proposed to improve its performance. The interactions between these components are dynamically complex. One of the most suitable methods to be used in modeling them is to apply system dynamics modeling.

The major objective of the research is to build a system dynamics modeling of E-government and its empirical verification on the data of the E-government of Uzbekistan. This model, after proper validation, can serve as a tool for constructing optimal policy design in order to improve the mechanism for ensuring sustainable growth of the E-government system management indicators.
