The Use of ICT in a Local Government Unit

Małgorzata Nycz , Zdzisław Pólkowski


The focus of the paper is information and communications technology (ICT) solutions in hybrid information systems in a local government unit. As the exemplary local government unit, the social welfare center (Ośrodek Pomocy Społecznej, or “OPS”) in Polkowice, Poland, was chosen. After a brief introduction, the problem statement, goal of study, research questions and methodology, and the issue of how ICT supports managers in the decision-making process are presented. The policy regarding ICT plays a crucial role in developing new tools; therefore, the section titled “ICT policy regarding to local government units” is devoted to this. Reasons why ICT solutions in local government units are not fully integrated are discussed. The model of a fully integrated system for local government units is next discussed, followed by a short conclusion
