Annual Digital Government Perception Survey (Business) Conducted in 2010
The e-Government Perception Survey on Businesses is conducted annually by the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech) to determine the level of adoption and satisfaction for e-Government electronic services targeted at the business community.
The survey was conducted from March to June 2010 for the reporting period of FY2009 (i.e. 1 April 2009 to 31 March 2010).
The survey aims to determine the frequency of obtaining information and/or performing transactions with the Government and the level of satisfaction with regards to the EnterpriseOne website (ww.enterpriseone.gov.sg) and Government e-Services.
1,629 businesses, representative of the Singapore’s industry sectors were surveyed. The industries were:
- Financial & Business Services,
