Local Governments as E-Governments: Meeting the Implementation Challenge

Author: GREGORY D. STREIB and KATHERINE G. WILLOUGHBY
Published in PAQ, Vol. 29 No. 1

The Internet has become an important way for individuals,
private companies, and governments to get information, to
communicate, and to do business. Research shows that local
governments have been slow to respond to these developments. In this
article we examine the ability of local governments to implement the
changes needed to become cyber-governments. We develop a model
that examines the strengths and weaknesses that need to be considered
before embarking on E-governance reforms. We also examine the
hurdles that local governments will need to cross in order to achieve
success.
