A funding choice decision model for financing promising e-government services
by Rosemary Wild, Kenneth Griggs
Electronic Government, an International Journal (EG), Vol. 3, No. 3, 2006

Abstract: The evolution of electronic government (e-government) initiatives poses a myriad of challenges that involve complex technology, social and managerial decisions. One of the most overwhelming challenges, however, is identifying funding sources for promising e-government services. In this paper, we explore issues associated with the shortcomings of traditional government budgeting that prevent the successful use of information technology to enable e-government processes and services. We present diverse and innovative approaches local, state and federal government agencies are experimenting with to counter governmental budgeting constraints and create cost effective and properly funded e-government services. Finally, we develop a decision model to help guide the choice of an appropriate non-traditional funding approach in light of the risks associated with each alternative and the potential policy, social and political ramifications of each choice.
