Democracy, Ideology and Process Re-Engineering: Realising the Benefits of e-Government in Singapore
Huai, Jinpeng, Shen, Vincent and Tan, C.J. (eds.)
At Workshop on e-Government: Barriers and Opportunities, WWW06.
The re-engineering of governmental processes is a necessary condition for the realisation of the benefits of e-government. Several obstacles to such re-engineering exist. These include: (1) information processing thrives on transparency and amalgamation of data, whilst governments are constrained by principles of privacy and data separation; (2) top-down re-engineering may be resisted effectively from the bottom up. This paper analyses these obstacles in the way of re-engineering in Singapore – a democratic one-party state where legislative and executive power lies with the People’s Action Party – and considers how that hegemony has aided the development of e-government.
