Proposed Project Note (initial project draft description):

Best Practices for Using Web Technologies to Deliver Government Services

Document description: Collection of everything we know about eGov, but not going into a lot of depth. Maybe a few technology details, but still usable for non-techies. The document will address both "Web 1.0" and "Web 2.0" technologies and how these technologies can help improve government services. The document will be useful to both IT staff and policy-makers and will direct the readers, when possible, to other materials for more in-depth information.


Teleconference meetings will be currently held on Wednesdays, at 12 noon ET (17:00 UTC), subject to a call from the co-ordinator. These meetings will be as necessary or upon request of the Chairs. Initial work is proposed to take place using an online discussion space and/or email. Telecon meetings are not envisioned to take place more than once a week or every other week.
