In recent years, some institutions and organizations have established information system infrastructures in accordance with e-government strategy stipulated in 10th development plan in Turkey. One of the institutions which are trying to build information systems and in which property-based processes are performed intensively is the General Directorate of Foundations (GDF, Vakıflar Genel Müdürlüğü-VGM in Turkish). A series of work on setting up a geographical information system for the establishment of an infrastructure for sustainable management of foundation properties designed to respond to any requirements within GDF under e-government strategy has been carried out by the GDF with the participation of the private sector. The system designed by the GDF was considered in two parts. The first part is a parcel-based application in which CAD data of each foundation parcel is stored and by which any spatial analysis and query can be made. The second part is a WEB- GIS application which is generated by entry of non-spatial information and by which an internet-based query can be made. Then it was accelerated via different components. By this study, the current status of e-government applications within the GDF, which have been in use since 2006, will be revealed. It will be discussed how the current system should be in the light of e-government, and suggestions will be developed for transformation of the designed system into formats and standards compatible with others.
