Do e-government services meet citizens’ needs? This chapter examines the performance of e-government services from a citizen-centric perspective. This chapter, taking the Kaohsiung Citizen Electronic Complaint System (KCECS) in Taiwan as a case study, identifies satisfaction and service quality as evaluation indicators when assessing e-government services. The empirical results show that citizens perceive moderately positive satisfaction toward the e-complaint service, and that a citizen-centric approach for evaluating e-government service is desirable. Complaint resolving ability makes the most contribution to the overall satisfaction of e-complaint service, but remains the top priority for improvement of the KCECS. Some solutions are proposed to help public officials to meet citizens’ needs and thus better serve citizens.
