The quality of e-government services plays a vital role in the effective interaction of users/citizens with e-government portals, and it also improves governments' efficiency and responsiveness as per users' expectations. The objective of this study is to develop an instrument to measure perceived e-government service quality by applying a three-steps approach for models validation; conceptualization, design, and normalization; it was validated with Oman e-government service users. In this article, eight main quality dimensions were studied and validated (personalization, usability, performance, web design, security, citizen involvement, satisfaction, and loyalty). The reported results emphasized the varying importance of all eight quality instruments, in addition to the higher impact of web design and security on e-government services in the context of the Oman e-government.
