eTRANSPARENCY CASE STUDY COMPETITION:

The eGovernment for Development Information Exchange is
seeking short case studies involving use of ICTs to improve
public sector transparency in developing/transitional
economies.

I would like to invite you to submit an e-transparency case
study of this type.  The required format is given at the end of
this message, or you can submit online via Web page:
http://www.e-devexchange.org/eGov/casestudy2.htm

All cases submitted by OCTOBER 10 2003 will be considered
for payment.  All case studies accepted for publication will
attract a 150 payment.  The best three cases  judged on
knowledge-building value  will attract a total 300 payment.

If you have any questions about the competition or case
formats, do please contact me.  Both cases and author(s) can be
made anonymous to protect identities if necessary.

The "eGovernment for Development Information Exchange"
project is coordinated by the University of Manchester's
Institute for Development Policy and Management.  The
project is funded and managed by the Commonwealth
Telecommunications Organisation as part of the UK
Department for International Development's "Building Digital

conduct that set standards for activity in this area?
6d) Do those who receive the information have any way to then
exert feedback or control over public servants if the
