The UN E-Government Survey serves as a tool for decision-makers to identify their areas of strength and challenges. The Survey assesses the e-government readiness of the 193 Member States of the UN according to a quantitative composite index of e-readiness based on website assessment, telecommunication infrastructure, and human resource endowment. ICTs can help reinvent government in such a way that existing institutional arrangements can be restructured and new innovative arrangements can flourish, paving the way for a collaborative, effective, inclusive, transparent and accountable government, which is critical for sustainable development. DPADM, as a global hub for innovation in public governance, promotes knowledge sharing of innovative approaches and practices in public management, particularly in the area of e-government.
