A new report for the UK National Audit Office, Government on the Web II, has been completed by Government on the Web, a research team on e-government from the LSE Public Policy Group and the UCL School of Public Policy.
The report assesses progress in implementing e-government and web-enabling of public administration in Britain up to early 2002. It is published as an NAO 'value for money' study, available from The Stationary Office, London. The House of Commons paper reference details are: HC 764, Session 2001-2002.
The new research includes:
Case studies of two Whitehall departments, the Department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions (a citizen-facing agency, also responsible for e-government at the local authority level), and HM Customs and Excise, a key taxing and business-facing department
Analysis of central e-government policies promoted by the Office of the e-Envoy at a cost of £1 billion over three years
Censuses of all central government web sites in the UK and England, and of all local government Web sites in England
Analysis of e-government growth across the UK public sector
Government on the Web is a joint research team on e-government from the LSE Public Policy Group (London School of Economics and Political Science) and the UCL School of Public Policy (University College London), led by Professor Patrick Dunleavy (LSE) and Professor Helen Margetts (UCL).
