The last decade has seen the quickening in the maturation of E-Governance across the world. This has been supported by rapid increase in internet accessibility, emergence of a number of applications for Government to Citizen, Government to Government and Government to Business services. This brief note works out the key values that should underlie an E-Governance initiative in a democratic government, a categorisation of digital initiatives - the key pillars - that constitute E-Governance and specific set of digital initiatives with in each category. This is only meant as a quick primer to think about building an E-Governance agenda and draws upon a selected work of McKinsey and Co in the area.

An E-Governance Framework

For a democratic government, its e-governance initiatives must stand the test of participative nature, inclusiveness, transparency, respect for citizen rights, efficiency and effectiveness. Therefore, these become the key values around which e-governance initiatives have to be conceptualized.

It is on top of these values that we look at the key pillars of web-enabled governance initiatives. Adopting a framework owned by McKinsey and Company, the key pillars of web-enabled governance initiatives are as below:

Digital Citizen Interactions

This includes a set of initiatives designed to disseminate information from the government to citizens as well as to gather information and feedback from citizens leveraging websites, social media, and mobile applications.

Digital End to End Processes

Here, government procedures and services workflow is managed using digital technology. This can enable efficiency, accountability, and transparency in service delivery.

Digitally and Data-Enabled Decisions

The technology advances in analytics can be exploited to improve decision making as well as improve transparency and accountability.

Data Sharing and Publishing

Government by virtue of its functioning gathers data of varied kinds. This data can support research into many key areas and contribute to improving the discourse in these domains.

The above has been summarised in the table as below.

With the above key premises, we have put together a set of initiatives that a government can undertake as part of their E-Governance agenda. These are not in any recommended sequence or priority.

Forwarding the agenda of democratic governance using the medium of digital has been made possible like never before with the advance in technology. A clear roadmap keeping in mind the reality of each polity and a commitment to the principles of democracy can help governments empower their citizens to lead fulfilling lives - especially in developing countries marked by resource scarcity.

When a company takes up a project with a client they normally will have to sign an agreement with the client that neither party will disclose information that will be shared as part of the project to anybody else and that the information shared shall not be used for creating competing products/services by the company. This is a standard document that needs to be signed for most projects. This document is also referred to as Non Disclosure Agreement. We are publishing our Confidential Disclosure Agreement here. Feel free to copy and use for your needs. Business Solution Agreements CDA NCA Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * nithin (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 18:41 In the event of a dispute, what is the legal validity of such a document? webmaster access_time 29 May 2020 - 18:41 In reply to Legal validity by nithin (not verified) The validity would depend on how you register the contract. I think you can have a legally binding contract registered between two parties. There is an Indian Contracts Act that deals with such issues. You can please refer that or talk with a lawyer ;) Shailendra (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 18:41 Hi, I would like to know whether this Agreement can be printed on a Company Letterhead to be legally enforceable or does it need to be done on a Stamp Paper only? If on a Stamp Paper, then of what value? Thank you, Regards, Shailendra Naveena (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 18:41 In reply to What is the Substrate that should be used for this Agreement? by Shailendra (not verified) It has to be ideally on Rs. 50 stamp paper, or refer to the state stamp Act where it is executed. In case of other party being an International client, in such a case on letter head or original sheets. Anonymous (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 18:41 Can a non compete agreement be voided if it only has the day and month on it, the year was not completey filled (200 )? It was signed by both parties, without dates by signatures. Thank tx Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment
