Best-Practice

begix.de
Balanced E-Government is a project of the Bertelsmann Foundation. On this website, you will find a summary of research findings of the study "balanced e-government" carried out in 2002. The research was meant to provide, for one, a solid basis for a forward-looking definition of what constitutes "good eGovernment". The second objective of the study is to outline the elements of a strategy both for administrators and the private sector on how to put electronic service delivery and the promises of digital democracy into practise. Please also take a look at the BEGIX tool helping you to evaluate your own E-Government offerings by using the BEGIX criteria for balanced E-Government.
