Why is it important?

The implementation of information technologies in government could have significant effects on efficiency, transparency, and corruption. However, it is not clear whether and how citizens perceive these effects.


The results indicate that interactions between citizens and municipal governments, supported by technologies, affect citizens’ perception of transparency, efficiency, and corruption. The most impactful technologies identified were websites, social media, and mobile technologies.
