There are relatively few empirical studies that analyse e-government development from a global perspective. Using secondary data from 115 countries and the Technology–Organisation–Environment (TOE) as the guiding theoretical lens, we examine the facilitators for e-government development. Our research highlights the importance of national technological and organisational (human capital) contexts for e-government development. Our results also show that national environment (institutional and macroeconomic) is not a significant facilitator for e-government development. Further, post hoc analysis reveals the anomalous significant relationship of public institutions with e-government development in the negative direction. Through this research, we make some important contributions that have implications for researchers, practitioners and policymakers
