This paper proposes an architecture and a model of Business Process Support (BPS) Systems for e-government organizational boundaries. Today, processes are mostly adapted to existing technologies; in contrast, the proposed architecture intends to support typical e-government processes. The proposed system consists of three main IT components: a workflow system for administration and control of information flows; Web Services enabling data transfer between computers; and a Web Server controlling all applications for communication with all users in each organization. The proposed model of the Workflow Enactment Server consists of two nodes: the Rule Base Collection, and the Workflow Engine. The workflow engine consists of two components A and B for process execution and control.
