Singapore launched an e-Government Leadership Centre to share its successful e-Gov initiatives and provide critical training to its own public officials and counterparts from other countries.
The eGL centre will be a joint initiative of Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Singapore National University’s Institute of Systems Science and the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA). eGL will become operational in October 2006 and will seek to provide quality e-Gov education, research and consulting.
eGL will be an autonomous graduate school of NUS and will provide education and training to the next generation of Asian policy makers and leaders. It will offer Masters degrees in public policy, public administration and public management. There will be courses on e-Gov policy, strategic ICT planning, ICT governance, Business Process reengineering, sourcing strategies and project management.
