The Adoption of New Technology Policies in Local Government: A Comparative Analysis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The adoption information communication technologies (ICT) at different levels of government has contributed to the emergence of electronic-government or e-government designed to communicate information, deliver services, and offer additional avenues to interact with and participate in government. An increasing body of research is assessing e-government across the industrialized democracies and large metropolitan areas in terms of information dissemination, service delivery, and citizen participation in government. Nevertheless, a systematic analysis to explain e-government and as to how these ICTs have been adopted in the form of new e-government policies at the local level of government remains extremely rare. Relying on a Evaluation Index of Local E-Government Sophistication, United States census and data collected by municipalities and through semi-structured interviews and archival records, the purpose of the analysis is threefold: 1) based on multiple regression, explain local e-government sophistication among a randomly selected sample of incorporated municipalities in the States of Virginia and Washington; 2) based on descriptive statistics, illustrate the high level of e-government sophistication in the Cities of Virginia Beach and Seattle relative to the sample of Virginia and Washington municipalities respectively; and 3) based on qualitative approaches, explain the adoption of ICT policies by the Cities of Virginia Beach and Seattle. Ultimately, the results of this study help us understand the processes that guide the adoption of community-oriented technologies, thereby generating valuable insights for social scientists and policymakers with an interest in the formation and implementation of ITC policies in local government.
