Challenges in implementing an e-Government website in Guinea-Bissau.
This research assesses the challenges involved in the implementation of an e-Government website in Guinea-Bissau. Special attention is given to Government ministries and their role in implementing the e-Government website. The goal has been to establish the extent to which the Government of Guinea-Bissau has responded to the challenges involved in establishing e-Government and the progress that has been made with regard to the priority initiatives pertaining to e-Government in the country. The study has made use of the survey research strategy. The study’s population consisted of twenty-three Government ministries. The study examines the challenges and prospects connected with the implementation of e-Government in GB and it also investigates the reasons for the failure of the country’s first IT implementation attempt. This study argues that e-Government in Guinea-Bissau (GB) has the potential to change the Government administration’s processes and also facilitate the delivery of Government information to the public. Realising this potential may be assisted if the ICT recommendations are taken into account by the relevant stakeholders. The development of an e-Government policy, an e-Government strategy and an e-Government programme were identified by respondents as matters of priority, as is the need to attend to GB’s broadband issues.
