Office of Electronic Government Law and Legal Definition
The U.S. Office of Electronic Government, created under the E-Government Act of 2002, is the main federal body devoted to use the internet to promote electronic-based information and services to U.S. citizens. The Office of Electronic Government provides a general framework for various governmental departments and agencies to communicate with and provide services to citizens, businesses, contractors, as well as government employees and other government entities. The office operates under the General Services Administration.
According to the Office, the concept underlying e-government was to move government away from a passive orientation toward citizens in favor of a more proactive approach, whereby government agencies come to citizens online with the full range of information and service offerings to which citizens are entitled.
