Scope of Work
The two key events in this NSF sponsored project are a workshop and subsequent report that details a next generation research agenda.

The workshop discussions emphasized:
  • Understanding the multiple contexts in which government and governance operate and how those contexts matter in technology adoption, use, and impact.
  • Assessing lessons learned from previous research that provide insight into the technology-related behaviors of various actors and their consequences for government and governance.
  • Leveraging the knowledge and expertise of the workshop participants about how value, risk, and complexity are understood and addressed by government decision-makers and managers.
  • Understanding the interplay of complexity, value, and risk inherent in the emergence of new information technologies and their adoption by individuals, organizations, and governments.
  • Relevant research themes, designs, and funding criteria for future work that will have both scholarly and practical value.
