Transformational Government Framework Primer Version 1.0
Committee Note Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
21 July 2011
The Transformational Government Framework is a managed process of ICT-enabled change in the public sector, which puts the needs of citizens and businesses at the heart of that process and which achieves significant and transformational impacts on the efficiency and effectiveness of government. The TGF Primer is intended to serve as an introduction to and detailed overview of the Framework. It also covers the Framework's rationale, purpose, scope, and intended use.
Please also see the related 30-day public review for the TGF Pattern Language Core Patterns Version 1.0 open through Thursday, 27 October 2011:
TC Description :
The Transformational Government TC is advancing an overall framework for using information technology to improve the delivery of public services.

The work of the TC includes defining the framework, identifying use cases, and providing adoption guidance for governments around the world, regardless of their history in implementing eGov.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts today, 28 September 2011 and ends Friday, 28 October 2011.
