This chapter demonstrates the importance and challenges considering technology adoption in general and e-government adoption in particular in the context of a key strategic process for the Egyptian Government. Thus our empirical findings are based on the foreign financing decision making process of Egypt extending previous work on e-business technologies and e-government adoption in general and G2G in particular. Although that new trends in Government support appear such as u–government, g-government and Me-government, none of the leading countries has reached the full integration. Among some of the possible reasons is that technology adoption relies to a great extent, not only to the factors being presented in TAM model, but also solving one of the most important challenges from our point of view, namely organizational problems, which will be highlighted through our case studies. This includes identifying and documenting the decision making processes crossing different ministries, which is a challenging task by itself. Although adopting technologies needs infrastructure such as the process being IT ready, inter and intra-organizational integration technologies in the form of G2G or some of the new trends such as g-government, can help in resolving some of those organizational challenges existing at those strategic processes.
