WeGO ICT Feasibility Studies

Since 2011,

WeGO has provided Smart City & e-Government consultation services through Feasibility Studies (FS) on Smart City & e-Government development for WeGO Members. This technical assistance program is designed to help members assess their current e-Government status and draw realistic and concrete
Smart City & e-Government strategies.

About WeGO e-Government Consultation Programs

WeGO annually selects 1 – 2 WeGO member cities for the FS projects pursuant to a Call for Letters of Intent.
Interested cities and local governments are encouraged to submit a letter of intent to the WeGO Secretariat to apply for
an FS project and to indicate their interest, readiness, and willingness to participate in the project.
In particular, the WeGO Secretariat looks for the following elements in an applicant city.

  • The applicant’s commitment to developing its own Smart City & e-Government system in an inclusive and sustainable manner
  • The alignment of the FS project with the Government’s Smart City, ICT strategies and vision
  • The willingness to participate in the project as a project partner by providing local support to the Project Consultants
  • Indication of how the project would be sustainable beyond its completion
  • Indication of the applicant city’s commitment to the post-project implementation of the Smart City & e-Government system

WeGO is delighted to announce that La Marsa, Tunisia has been selected as the final beneficiary city of the WeGO ICT Feasibility Study Project 2017!

Eight WeGO members submitted their applications for the WeGO ICT Feasibility Study Project 2017, and the beneficiary city was selected by the WeGO Secretariat in consultation with the Selection Committee, considering a number of selection criteria such as relevance with this year’s theme of “Mobile technology and connectivity,” alignment of the project with the Government’s ICT strategies and vision, expected outcomes, local support to the Project Consultants to be provided by the city, and the city’s commitment to the post-project implementation.

It is with deep regret that despite receiving well-written proposals, the remaining applicant cities could not be selected as beneficiary cities for this year’s Feasibility Study Project. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to all cities for their valuable participation, and we look forward to partnering with all of you at another time.

The WeGO Secretariat will now be recruiting and selecting the IT/Project Consultants for the WeGO ICT Feasibility Study Project until mid-October. The Project will kick off in late October until the end of the year pursuant to diverse methodologies including site visits to La Marsa.

We wish for the most successful implementation of the Feasibility Study Project, and a prosperous rest of the year to all the applicant cities!
