Electronic government in Brazil: a historical perspective from a structured model of analysis. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.1, pp.23-48.

The development of the Brazilian Electronic Government Program started in 2000, during the Ferrnando Henrique Cardoso administration. Today it is in its third management of two different administrations. Although the technological perspective has high relevance in the historical analysis of this program, this article suggests a methodological approach for the analysis of the Electronic Government Program supported by a reference model that incorporates its different stages of development, its actors, its intervening relations and factors. The model was validated by means of an empirical survey with semi-structured interviews with key actors of the process.
