eGovernment in Developing Nations
Greetings from the completion ceremony for the eGovernment capacity building through knowledge transfer in Bangladesh project (PSLP eGov), being held at the Australian National University in Canberra. Present are and dignitaries of the ICT community including AGIMO, NICTA, Professor Gregor who oversaw the project and Ahmed Imran who did much of the work. The project involved preparing training materiel for Bangladesh government officials and conducting training forums. One of the more useful output is the "ICT Management Handbook: A Guide for Government officers in Bangladesh". The handbook is based on AGIMO's handbook for the Australian Public Service. There are other items from the course available on the web. It is likely that the program will be expanded to other developing nations through AusAid. Also later versions may include a component on sustainability from my ANU Green ICT course.
