  • Much research has been done on evaluating the performance of e-government in China, but comprehensive pictures of research done on evaluation of performance of e-government can hardly be found in the Chinese literature. Besides, there are few theories to support the research and practice in evaluation. By analyzing existed literature, the paper proposes a conceptual framework for evaluating performance of e-government based on public value perspective. Delivery of public services, effectiveness of public organization and development of trust are identified and selected as three basic public values for analysis.
