*About the event*

*ABSTRACT: *  Governments have invested vast amounts of time, public money, and effort into technologising and transforming public sector relationships, with the goal of achieving optimised government service delivery, governance, and constituency participation. To discover the extent that transformation has actually been achieved by local government organisations, this article provides a cross-national comparison of local e-government effectiveness as judged by internal stakeholders in Australia, Germany, and New Zealand. It appears that e-government continues to be viewed by the policymakers charged with developing it as something that supplements, rather than displaces, their traditional government services. Far from being transformative, only incremental improvements to internal procedures and service quality were reported.

*SPEAKER: *  Dr Stuart Dillon is Chairperson and Senior Lecturer in Information Systems and Electronic Commerce from the Department of Management Systems at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand.  He has a PhD in Decision Science, however much of his research is in the area of electronic commerce.   Past and current relevant research includes work on e-government, consumer perceptions on e-tailing, and data curation.  He has published his research in academic journals such as MIS Quarterly, International Journal of Public Sector Management, and Journal of Global Information Management.  The Department of Management Systems at the University of Waikato is the New Zealand member of ERCIS and Stuart has worked for several years with Professor Gottfried Vossen from the Databases and Information Systems group at Muenster and more recently several of members of the Information Systems and Information Management group.  It is the latter collaboration on which this seminar is based.
