The revolutionary changes in society caused by the new information and communication technologies (ICT) forced countries worldwide to develop sophisticated solutions for digitizing processes in the public sector, a process known as e-government. The purpose of such application of ICT in the work of public administration is a better environment for the functioning of both: the citizens and business community, as well as the public sector itself, by achieving greater transparency, effectiveness, and efficiency in its operations. However, the benchmarking process that is established to follow the e-government development and exchange the best practices notice a significant disparity in the e-government implementation at the world level. The disparity is present also at different levels of organization within a country, and even it is not always measured. Such an example is the Republic of North Macedonia (RNM) with no equal e-government development at the central, regional, and local levels. The development of e-Government at the regional level significantly lags behind the development of this concept at the central level. Hence, this paper aims to analyze the development of e-government at the regional level. As pilot research, one of the country's eight planning regions is used – the Vardar Planning Region. In order to get a complete picture of the current situation related to e-government development, the focus of the research is on the official website of the Center for Development of the Vardar Planning Region. The research presents a longitudinal observation over a period of years, with information collected in two moments. The analysis of the research results indicated a low level of development of e-Government at the regional level, with room for improvements.
