E-government is assumed nowadays as a common and transversal preoccupation to all the modern states. Therefore, in spite of having several methods for planning of the Information Systems, the specificity of Public Administration imposes the need to think in modeling of a method for global planning. This research provides a reflection on how to conduct and implement an e-government initiative in emergent’s countries, with special focus on the case of São Tomé and Principe.
