Abstract
This paper focuses on the ministerial level of e-government in the Caribbean. The paper specifically focuses on the regional bloc of Caribbean countries called Caricom. Caricom nations have clearly defined goals in terms of using technology to increase the social, economic, and political well-being of its citizens. This paper uses a content analysis methodology to examine ministerial level e-government in the region. Government ministries are functional organizations responsible for assigned portfolios of the state government. The paper further addresses unique factors that affect the development and implementation of e-government projects for Caricom countries.
