Benchmarking of initiatives with other equally performing countries is an important strategy to follow rather than reinvent the wheel. Rwanda, Mauritius, Brazil, Norway, New York State, Singapore and other countries have established an e-government in the Cabinet Office. These countries have been able to sensitize political leaders into driving e-Government initiatives. In the case of Rwanda the President chairs ICT meetings. The e-Government programme in Kenya process is spearheaded by the Head of Public Service (HOPS) to coordinate the dispersed initiatives that exist in government agencies as well as the private sector and civil society.
The functions of the e-Government Structure is to develop, coordinate and define ways that allow electronic and information technology business strategies to assist government to operate more effectively and efficiently in delivering services to citizens. The structure provides coordination and advice on issues pertaining to electronic business, telecommunications and technology. Similarly, the structure plans and develop more strategies that will direct government-wide activities to support other agencies, and participate in the development, analysis and evaluation of government-wide technology issues, policies and legislation.
