Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the American Political Science Association 2001, 28 August -1 September, Hilton Hotel, San Francisco, US

This paper explores the complex relationship existing between e-government change at national level, ICT government contracting regimes, and the characteristics of different public administrative regimes. The authors examine the relationship between these factors in three main case study countries, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand with supporting evidence from the Netherlands and the US. They focus on the extent of homogenizing effects of large-scale government IT markets on public administrative regimes, the resilience and distinctiveness of these regimes across different countries, and factors influencing successful transition to e-government service delivery models in these countries.
