This first-of-its-kind textbook addresses the new NASPAA curriculum requirements on Information Management. It is designed as a stand-alone text for an Information Management course in a Public Administration program, and can also serve as a professional resource for public managers. "Managing Information in the Public Sector" covers both the basics of information technology and the managerial and political issues surrounding the use of these technologies. Unlike other works on information systems that are written for MBA programs and require a general survey course in MIS, this book is written specifically for the public sector and addresses unique public sector issues and concerns. The technical basics are explained in clear English with as little technical jargon as possible so that readers can move on to informed analysis of the public policy issues surrounding government's use of MIS. This timely learning tool includes end of chapter summaries with bridges to upcoming chapters, numerous boxed exhibits, thorough end-of-chapter notes, and a bibliography for further reading.
