This paper describes a stages of growth model for e‑Government. The proposed model is comprised of seven stages, which are divided into three phases. The model is based on research into and analysis of Information Systems and Information Communications Technology (ICT) solutions in the Irish Revenue Offices for more than a 50‑year period. It is argued that this model provides a useful template for understanding the growth of ICT in government organisations.
