E-Gov and Public Sector Reform: what roles for government in e-government?

E-Government is often conceived as the next logical step after public sector reform. However, the implications of this step are not always acknowledged. In this paper, I will first recall, how exactly e-government follows the various public sector reform efforts. I will then identify what this exactly means in terms of government's various roles, namely telecommunications infrastructures, software solutions and platforms, and e-government services. For each of these three roles, I will finally detail what exactly is expected from government from a liberal perspective. In conclusion, I will summarize the various roles of government in promoting e-government in terms of an overall e-policy.
