okay, disclaimer first, I’m a consultant so take what I say with a grain of salt 😉
I work with Local Government here in Australia and one of the services I offer is a Plone based Collaboration site.
I find Plone to be a powerful Collaboration CMS as it is Open Source and has a UI that has been put together by people with some clue as to how Users work. It is also modular in nature, with a large range of third party products that allow for many different configurations.
For Government in particular there has been a project called PloneGov running for a while both in the US and Europe (plonegov.org).
