The focus of the paper is information and communications technology (ICT) solutions in hybrid information systems in a local government unit.

After a brief introduction, problem statement, goal of study, research questions and methodology, the issue of how ICT supports managers in the decision-making process is presented. The policy regarding ICT plays a crucial role in developing new tools; therefore, the section titled “ICT policy regarding to local government units” is devoted to this. Reasons why ICT solutions in local government units are not fully integrated are discussed.
