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 e-Government system in an inclusive and sustainable manner
  • The alignment of the FS project with the Government’s 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 e-Government system

WeGO is now accepting Requests for Project Proposals (RFP) for the WeGO ICT Feasibility Study Project 2017, which WeGO provides annually at no cost to members. WeGO has been conducting ICT Feasibility Study Projects since its establishment to provide technical assistance and to advance the digital capacity of its member cities around the world.

This year’s WeGO ICT Feasibility Study Project is on “Mobile Technology & Connectivity” and will will focus on identifying and recognizing transformative, innovative contributions to the evolution of Smart Cities via the use of mobile technology & connectivity. WeGO seeks projects that address specific urban challenges, fuel economic activities, provide services for the city to improve the quality of life for citizens in a tangible and sustainable way.

This year’s project should strategically use wireless and mobile technologies, services, applications (Apps), and devices such as smartphones and wireless infrastructure to accelerate communications between government, citizens, and businesses; and provide citizens access to government services anytime, anywhere, and empower digitally deprived citizens and businesses. The project may encompass additional platforms, such as a website, but mobile technology must be a key component of the project.

For cities interested in submitting their RFPs for this Feasibility Study Project, please download the package below and submit the forms to the WeGO Secretariat by April 30, 2017.
