If co-operating government agencies reside in different countries, they will differ in many respects: administrative ontologies and laws, political context, administrative culture, and computing infrastructure. Inter-organizational e-government services may provide technical interoperability, but do not necessarily solve the problem how to understand a foreign administration. In this paper, we shall discuss the difficulties of citizens in dealing with heterogeneous local e-government services.
