The purpose of the Commonwealth Centre for e-Governance is to provide insight and knowledge on the changing nature of governments in our growing technology infrastructures. The CCEG is working to develop sets of best practices on how best to use technologies to implement the goals and objectives of public administration. It is the goal of CCEG to work with governments and international organizations to contribute to the growing knowledge base on e-government, e-Governance and eDemocracy. CCEG continues to contribute to developments in these subjects in both a theoretical and practical manner. Part of CCEG’s mandate is offering workshops and seminars in developing countries throughout the world on various aspects of e-government. Much of the focus of CCEG is on the multitude of information and administrative policies that will be needed as developing countries increasingly implement new technologies.
