Abstract

This paper reports on a qualitative research results from a series of focus group meetings of twenty government officers concerning e-procurement system development and implementation. Through a focus group session, three emergent foci concerning the e-Procurement systems were identified from the perspective of public administration. Three emergent foci were: (1) consideration of evolutionary developmental stages of e-Government with information sharing and citizens' participation as important dimensions, (2) criticality of management of technology than the technology itself, leading to nine critical success factors of related projects, and (3) construction of common vocabulary and worldwide reference model for further international cooperation. Practical implications and further research were discussed at the end.
