Name:eGovernment Interest Group

Acronym:eGov IG

This group is chartered to serve as a connector among people, especially government employees, looking for ways to use or promote the use of W3C technologies to improve government services and operations. We believe these technologies can provide significant benefit to governments of all sizes, including city, regional, and national governments (and between governments), in all parts of the world. We also recognize that with new technologies and a changing world, new policy concerns arise; this group will also facilitate discussion to focus understanding of policy and security matters related to W3C technologies. In its activities, the group will generally focus on a small number of projects or areas of interest, selected by the chairs based on the evolving interests of the group participants and needs of the wider community. Current candidates for focus areas include (the following goals).
