E-Government (EG) management represents a challenging task for many stakeholders. As an emerging notion, IT Governance (ITG) represents an opportunity to fulfil different strategic objectives including EG. However, research on the impact of ITG on EG development-phases and success is limited. Thus, the objective of this research is to investigate how ITG could be extended to EG and attempt to develop an ITG framework to assist govern EG. This exploratory research uses qualitative data to investigate how ITG elements impact EG development-phases. The application of the proposed ITG framework makes it possible to enhance and improve the development of EG.
