June 13, 2019 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International (Trident) faculty member and 2017 Ph.D. graduate Dr. Timothy Pritchard has published the paper, “Government employees and their use of Digital Government,” which will be presented at the Americas Conference of Information Systems (AMCIS) 2019 in Cancun, Mexico.
Paper co-authors include Dr. Indira Guzman, Doctoral Studies Director, Glenn R. Jones College of Business, Trident faculty member Dr. Santos Galvez, and Dr. Xufei (Nancy) Deng of CSU Dominguez Hills. All three were members of Dr. Pritchard’s dissertation committee, with Dr. Galvez serving as the Chair.
The goal of this research was to understand what contributes to the success of e-government websites in the United States, through an empirical analysis that surveyed government employees about their use of these websites.
According to the abstract, the authors concluded that, “trusting beliefs and the quality variables of the Information Systems Success model do play an integral role in citizens’ intention to continue using e-government websites.” The study’s findings could play an important role in the future design and implementation of these websites.
