Theoretical background:
What is e-gov, how can it be useful for better service delivery,
what are the constrains to build e-gov society in Bangladesh?
Application/practical oriented task:
1. Simple model of customer/clients response via web-pages,
say, receiving application of clients and processing it by technology.
2. Posting a questionnaire in webpage for collecting survey response as well
as processing & presenting the survey result in the webpage.
(3 marks)
For theoretical background:
I like to have some 20/30 minutes (as our teacher likes best) lecture delivery
on the issue per 2*1.5 hr class schedule. Then brain storming, group
discussion, presentation could be sharpen our theoretical construct.
For application/practical oriented task:
I like to have an explanatory example done (from first to last step) in the
class by the teacher, and then asked us to build our own project by
ourselves for demonstration. If only a few can catch it up, then the
few may be instructed to disseminate the skill/know how to
others diving groups.

Steps in which delay occurs:


  1. Lack of information/knowledge about consumer right protection act.
  2. Difficulties of raise a complain in proper place.

How delay problems can be improved using technology:


  1. Publishing widely consumer rights including contact person to whom complain can be raised through different media like, web-page, electronic media etc.
  2. Receiving complain via- a) Using online method and b) Push-pull service of mobile.
  3. Develop a database containing base information.
  4. Analyze the complain by using data-base.
  5. Prioritizing the appropriate complain.
  6. Forwarding the appropriate complain to the concerned implementing agencies to mitigate it via on-line.

How to raise a complain in proper place :

CIPSODA model
C-Capture : To establish a complain cell in each union.
Component of complain.
Name and address of complainant
Name of the product/service
Responsible person/organization for the service or manufacturer of the products
Area and time of receiving the service/goods
I-Input : To lodge a complain through e-mail, SMS, blog, web-site.

Task 2:

Focus on ONE monitoring method in your case study. Breakdown the monitoring method into the steps of the CIPSODA model below.
Good work. A bit more in-depth thinking is required. (5 marks)

Data

Entry

Decentralized in different area
like Union. Thana, District
As data entry is done in
different area by different
unit it does not make over
loading on the persons
involved.
-Time consuming
- Personal objectives may be applied.

Processing

Data are processed centrally
in the head quarter
As data are processed centrally
it is easy to process
-Laborious
- Monotonous
-Over stress

Storage

Centrally in head quarter
Easy to control
Security threat-- Data are stored in
a single place and if back up is not
kept then there is a possibility
of high security threat.

Output

After processing the data
output can be got from head
quarter
Easy to find out
Difficult to communicate

Decisions

Decision in made centrally
in head quarter
Quick decision is possible
Non-participatory

Action

Decentralized
Action is taken by different unit
in union, thana, district,etc.
Prompt implementation possible
Deviation in implementation
from actual decision

Monitoring

Success

Monitoring is done centrally by
head quarter
- Easy to monitor as it is monitored
centrally by head quarter
