Abstract: In E-Government, the provision of valuable services depends upon the capacity of Public Administrations to coordinate their services. The ability of computing systems owned and managed by these Public Administrations turns independently without adequate attention to the need to interact with other Public Administration systems, coordination of heterogeneous computing solutions is a difficult and costly task. Moreover, Some Public Administrations are not necessarily equipped with sophisticated systems especially in developing countries such as the case of Tunisia. To this direction, although several approaches have been proposed, all these approaches would be insufficient since they are theoretical solutions, centralized and costly. This paper presents an e-government model based on agent and web services. It introduces an Inter-Organizational Workflow (IOW) model based on the idea of interfacing. The e-Government Entities (GEs) are only required to describe their services using WSDL. The e-Government Entities (GEs) are distributed, a direct interaction is established between them with no need of a middleware. Two different case studies are carried out, to demonstrate the applicability of our approach.
