Information technologies are being applied vigorously by governmental units at national,regional, and local levels around the world. The application of IT to government service
is often termed “e-government” and the larger concept of government that depends upon
IT to achieve basic missions is termed “digital government.” This distinction is, of course,
lexically arbitrary, but serves to distinguish R&D specifically aimed at creating techniques
for applying IT to government operations. Such R&D efforts also consider the long-term
impact of these applications on citizens and
government itself.
