Hello Sharron,


Some comments...



activities of electronic government (or e-government, e-gov, digital
government, online government or, in a certain context, transformational
government) refers to the use of internet technology as a platform for
exchanging information, providing services and transacting with citizens


Two issues:

a) the definition covers only "internet technologies"

b) it covers only the G2C transactions and not G2G (back office).


There are several broader definitions available from UN, OECD, EU, why
not reusing one?



Government to Government (G2G) 

online interaction between and among Government organisations,
departments, and authorities. 
G2G systems generally come in one of two types: 

*         Internal facing - between Government departments, agencies,
organizations and authorities within one country

*         External facing - between the IT systems of multiple
Governments - an example is the integration aspect of the Schengen
Information System (SIS), developed to meet the requirements of the
Schengen Agreement.

The "external facing" is usually called cross-boarder egovernment
services and Pan-European eGovernment Services (PEGS) in the EU context.
I haven't seen the term "internal facing" in the way defined here.



the ability of software systems that may be running under different
operating systems and hardware to effectively exchange information; 


Not only if I may say (e.g. technical, semantic, organizational
interoperability). Again I would suggest reusing one of the "standard"
definitions available.



Missing term:



Best regards,

Greetings all,

I am attaching the glossary even though I must still complete the last
five entries.  But it is late and I am done for tonight.  So please
review the terms, send corrections or omission.  Jose needs me to finish
by end of the day Thursday.
