Abstract:

This study of the National Information Infrastructure NII was conducted as part of IDAs Central Research Program. Electronic commerce is one of seven key initiatives that the National Performance Review NPR believes can be impacted through the implementation of advanced information technology. In its most basic form commerce is the laws, regulations, policies, processes, and procedures that constitute the way we conduct business. Electronic commerce is nothing more than conducting business via electronic means. An outgrowth of the NPR, the electronic commerce initiative, commits the government to using information technology to reform the federal governments expansive acquisition process. Numerous agencies within the government, private, and public sectors are committed to implementing electronic commerce throughout the United States. The objective ol this paper is to enhance IDAs understanding of the activities, organizations, and issues related to the implementation of electronic commerce, as part of the NIl.
