The use of ICT in government activities in different countries, the transparency and accessibility of government information, interaction between citizens and authorities, public services, citizen participation in the decision-making process, etc. characterizes e-government models. The article analyzes the concept of e-government and conducts research on the evaluation of e-government models available in the literature. Using the method of the worst-case, a multicriteria model is proposed for estimating e-government models, and empirical calculation is carried out. The main advantage of the model is the possibility of multi-criteria choice of the e-government model without performing complex calculations (pp.34-40).

Keywords:e-government, e-government maturity models, multi-criteria choice, worst-case approach.
