Abstract

E-government refers to the use of information and communications technology to support the interaction between a government and its citizens, employees, businesses, and other government agencies. Today e-government projects are pervasive in both developed and developing nations worldwide. This study explores the e-government phenomenon in a developing region. Specifically, the objective of this study is to provide an exploratory analysis of the current state of e-government in the Caribbean. We used a website content analysis, with a theoretical base of Layne and Lee's (2001) e-government stage model. The significance of this study is two-fold. First it presents an empirical analysis of that state of e-government in the Caribbean region. Second, the study advances the current literature in the e-government domain and focuses on a region of the world that has been largely overlooked by existing e-government studies.
