Abstract

This study tests the model of information system success proposed by DeLone and McLean using data that was collected in three selected districts of Tanzania. A survey was administered to elicit factors for e-government adoption in Tanzania using the DeLone and McLean model of information system success. The results of multiple linear regressions indicate that system quality significantly influences e-government adoption in Tanzania. In light of these findings, researchers should conduct a similar study using other different models of e-government adoption in order to identify more factors that influence e-government adoption in Tanzania. Policy makers and e-government project teams should consider system quality as a barrier to e-government adoption and hence find ways of ensuring easy-to-use and easy-to-learn systems in order to facilitate e-government adoption within the country.
