As municipalities increasingly embrace the notion of electronic government, it becomes important to understand the factors that influence the perceptions and decisions of officials with regard to technology. This study employs survey research to examine the practices and trends in municipalities with populations of fewer than 50,000 residents in the context of four distinct functions of e-government: e-organization, e-services, e-partnering, and e-democracy. Relationships between managerial views and the performance of the four functions of e-government are explored, as are organizational variables. The findings indicate that having managerial support for each function of e-government is critical for growth, while negative views toward particular functions can thwart e-government development.
