Urban governments are becoming increasingly interested in modern management techniques such as computerized information systems. This paper presents an analytical state-of-the-art review of the uses, impacts and problems of computer technology in local governments in the United States. It reports the results of a questionnaire survey conducted by URBIS (Urban Information System) Research Group, University of California at Irvine to determine the uses of computer technology and the policies governing those uses within local governments. The organization and research strategy of the URBIS Project is presented by way of introduction and is followed by a discussion of the role IIASA might play in the study of Urban Information Systems.
