*Working Title: Technology and Government*

The volume will focus on technology and government and will be divided into

technology, and part two will explore how changes in technology have
changed the way government operates. Papers may explore any of the
following or related ideas: why government fails at technology purchases,
why government lags behind on innovation and implementation, case studies
of governments that have done an excellent job of purchasing and using
technology, challenges of providing digital government services when large
percentages of the population lack digital connectivity due to the digital
divide, the effect of technology on transparency, political and/or
administrative, and this can be about the disclosure of behaviors, or about
more transparency in government due to the ability of government to put
information on line where the public can access it directly, how technology
has changed the way government, particularly local or state government
provides services,  the way technology has affected communications between
government and those the entity governs, etc. Submissions will be
peer-reviewed for publication.
