Government web sites - wazzup?

Next Monday I'll be on a conference call with other contributors to the US government Web Manager University's fall programme. We may brainstorm about some of the larger policy issues that is confronting, and proposals "for the next President's administration". (GSA is responsible for coordinating interagency efforts.)

One contributor writes:

There's way too much overlap, redundancy, and outright conflicts among US government websites. [...] Some themes are consolidating content by topic, across government; dramatically reducing the number of government websites (24,000 US government websites, and more every day); and merging content creation/management operations across channels, so you create it once and deliver it in multiple ways, web, call centers, publications, faxes, podcasts, whatever.

What are the problems of government web sites in your country? Are they similar? Are they solved? What's the story?
