Nowadays, more and more countries, developed or developing, are looking at egovernance as means to improved and cost effective governance. E-government can be defined as the adoption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to provide improved citizen services and efficient government processes like procurement [1]. In other words, the purpose of e-government is to achieve the public interests of society [ 2]. On the other hand, the e-governance is “to provide the links between government and its broader environment – political, social, and administrative [2]”. As a result, e-government and e-governance are related closely. Since the concepts of egovernance and e-government become critical, this paper will examine some of the key issues facing e-governance implementation like Privacy and Data security, Interoperability, Infrastructure availability and public preparedness (education, trust and accessibility).
