Towards ICT E-government Model for Development Projects Monitoring

Abstract. In recent years, e-government has been adopted worldwide. On the other hand, the developing world and the Sub Saharan African (SSA) countries in particular implement various development projects as means to provide solutions to problems facing their populations. However, the impact of these projects on communities is still very poor despite multiple aids from national and international aid agencies, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). In this paper we present an ICT e-government model that is able to strengthen efficiency, and sustainable implementation of development projects in a SSA country. Ontology is employed to represent the knowledge base component of the e-government model. Agent technologies are investigated to equip the model with intelligence. How the model must be integrated in the web-based e-government environment is specified. The study aims to provide an ICT-based monitoring and evaluation mechanisms of projects; which will benefit the communities, government authorities, businesses, and donor organizations significantly.
