Government at a Glance Southeast Asia 2019 is the first edition in the Government at a Glance series for the region. It provides the latest available data on public administrations in the 10 ASEAN member countries: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam. This publication includes indicators on public finance and economics, public employment, budget practices and procedures, strategic human resources management, digital government, open government and citizen satisfaction with public services. Where possible, these data were compared against the OECD average and that of the neighbouring OECD member countries, such as Australia, Korea, Japan and New Zealand.

Each indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings conveyed by the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.



Procurement for ICT Projects

Co-ordinated procurement for information and communication technology (ICT) projects is important for achieving coherent and sustainable digital government policies. Governments with specific procurement policies for ICT projects can achieve significant efficiencies by aggregating demand across the administration. At the same time, having specific policies allows them to enforce the required alignment of ICT investments with the national digital government policy’s goals (e.g. accomplishing technical standards for improved interoperability). ICT procurement policies also allow for better oversight and monitoring of ICT investments, avoiding gaps and duplications that typically result from siloed approaches.
