Have the e-Government projects supported by ERDF been effective?
Special Report No 9, 2011
Public administrations saw e-Government as a means of lessening the administrative burden of citizens, businesses and other administrations. The Court’s audit focused on projects co-financed by the ERDF in the 2000 - 06 period, aimed at the development of e-Government services in four Member States: France, Italy, Poland and Spain. The Court concluded that overall the e-Government projects contributed to the development of electronic public services. However even though the majority of them were technically operational, the benefits obtained were much lower than could have been expected, due... to failure to focus sufficiently on project results.
