This paper shows how e-government can, or might even have to, be considered as a public policy transformation. In the process of merging authorities into new organisations public policies on e-government appeared as a key activity. The case study presented in the paper is the formation of the new Swedish Transport Agency formed out of several formerly independent authorities. The Swedish case study is a mature public administration and basic democratic core values. The main contribution from the case study is to point out the importance of translation of policies into organizational practices.
