Abstract: "Information-Based Economy", which is today's economy that is a proof and indicator of development level for the countries now on, comes on the scene with its new organizing model on its infrastructure, which is called "Information Society". The phenomenon of administration introduces to "e-Government" for reinforcing the roots of "Information-Based Economy" now. Having a systematic knowledge of the relation between "Information-Based Economy", "Information Society" and "e-Government" as a whole composes of the theme of this study. For this purpose, a questionnaire has been conducted in the Ministry of National Education, which is responsible for forming the society of the future, to understand whether there is a systematic knowledge on the relation between "Information-Based Economy", "Information Society" and "e-Government" as a whole. Moreover, it has been aimed to discover what the mental formulations of participants are. Questionnaire results reveal that there is no systematic knowledge on the relation between "Information-Based Economy", "Information Society" and "e-Government" as a whole in the Ministry of National Education, and that the participants are apt to perceive "e-Government" within the context in which they are in terms of professions, status and backgrounds. Questionnaire results also show that the responses given by the participants concerning "e-Government" are more or less the same due to the hierarchical organization of knowledge and official knowledge in particular.
