Electronic Government today focuses mainly on offering citizens-enterprises the capability to perform electronically their transactions with the Public Administration (PA). However, the huge potential of ICT has only to a small extent been exploited in the most critical higher level functions of PA, such as the development, monitoring and evaluation of public policies and programmes, etc. This paper is dealing with the exploitation of the technologies of Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) in PA. A general architecture of a flexible Government to Government (G2G) collaborative environment is described, for supporting the higher level functions of PA, which has been designed as part of the ICTE-PAN Project.
