Information Communication Technology (ICT) can make a valuable contribution towards the operations of and the services offered to citizens by a government. While the benefits of e-Government initiatives and projects in Kenya cannot be disputed, there are key issues about their successful implementation. A survey about e-Government initiatives in developing countries by [42] show that 50% have partially failed, 35% have totally failed and only 15% have been successful. This research was based on a case study whose aim was to assess the implementation of the Kenya e-Citizen project. Data was collected through interviews and questionnaires from four ministries and the general users/citizens. The questionnaires and interview guides were created based on the six dimensions of the DeLone and McLean Information Systems Success Model. An enhanced model for assessing successful implementation of ICT projects is presented. In addition to the dimensions of the model, stakeholder engagement, has been suggested. The paper concludes by emphasizing the need of stakeholder engagement during the life of any government ICT project. A strategy that would oversee awareness campaigns would be required. Other strategies required would address communication, change management and training.
