Digital-Era Governance 

 

A theory of governance that involves reintegrating functions into the governmental sphere, adopting holistic and need-oriented structures, and progressing digitization of administrative processes.

 

(Dunleavy et al. 2005, 467)

 

---------------------------

 

Sometimes referred to as E-Government, it involves reintegrating functions into the governmental sphere, adopting holistic and need-oriented structures, and progressing digitization of administrative processes.  It is the broad sweep of current public management regime changes in terms that refer to new information-handling potentialities, which make feasible a transition to fully digital modes of operating for many government sector agencies. (p. 478)
