As information and communication technologies (ICTs) are dramatically changing the lives of people around the world, governments must come to grips with finding solutions that will increase public value to their citizens. This publication creates a venue for promoting innovative e-government solutions, services and products developed by public institutions across the world. The Compendium also enables South-South and North-South information-sharing of their respective experiences and innovative practices. In both cases, the focus is on hastening innovation and creating public value for the citizenry. It covers a wide range of innovative practices, such as citizens service delivery, e-participation, information access, e-health, information sharing/access, crisis management, e-accounting, e-commerce, e-customs, e-petitioning, e-voting, e-education, e-justice, e-procurement, e-taxation, e-inclusion, e-environment, gender equality, government portal, government intranet, sustainable development, open government data, etc.




Data.gov.sg is an integrated first-stop online portal that allows the general public to search for and access publicly available government data. Initiated as a key project of the Master plan “Co-creating for higher value,” with help from the Singapore Land Authority and the Singapore Department of Statistics, data.gov.sg aims to provide convenient access to government data, to catalyze the private development of innovative applications and services, as well as to facilitate analysis and research. With contribution from over 60 government agencies, the portal now contains more than 7,500 datasets for discovery and this number is still increasing.
