Today electronic Governance (E-governance) is no more a buzzword but a reality as countries all over the worldwide have shown interest in harnessing governance with state-of-the-art information and communication technology (ICT), in order to foster better governance. However, the inherent complexities of E-governance systems remain as a challenge for the architects to develop large scale, distributed, and interoperable E-governance applications. Besides this the dynamic nature of such

We also formalize concepts like service environment, service composition, and service collaboration which are some of the important ingredients of our design approach. In the sequel we highlight the suitability of our approach through some E-governance service provisioning scenarios.
