Abstract

Purpose

The study aims to examine the role of information technology in Local Government Administration in Delta State, using Aniocha North and Aniocha South Local Government Areas as the case study.

Design/methodology/approach

A survey approach was used to learn what was actually happening in local government practices.

Findings

IT contributes enormous value to the workings and operations of local government offices and when costs, leadership and management are indicative of such needs, it would be in the best interest of local governments to invest in such a launch.

Research limitations/implications

Economic feasibility and training and development of the human resource function would make enormous differences in the way local governments conduct their work in Delta State, Nigeria.

Practical implications

Local governments like libraries are great potential for IT applications and to build databases of information to be retained and recalled over time.

Originality/value

Applied the imperativeness of information technology practices to see how local practices could be improved for efficiency, quality control and ease of use.
