In December of 2002, the Lithuanian government approved the concept of e-government. The objective of the e-government concept is to develop effective means that will allow for adapting of public administration to modern needs. To achieve this purpose, the Lithuanian government identified e-government’s implementation as one of political priorities. One step toward this purpose is the development of e-government, which ensures democracy, the promotion of e-business, the computerization of society, and the use of the Internet. Following the e-government concept’s adoption, the Ministry of Interior affairs has been obliged to prepare a plan of measures necessary for implementation of the concept. The e-government concept describes the official approach towards the electronic government’s phenomena in Lithuania.
