Abstract

Public administration must control budget and expenditures while focusing its actions. These actions should necessarily be focused in the efficientuseofcentralandlocal government resources. Information Systems have been widely used for information production in public and private organizations. The great amount of information demands development and use of intelligent systems. The public sector (mainly in countries in development) lacks intelligent systems capable of valuing tributes, estimating budgets and expenses, and delivering information about the application of such resources with the highest efficiency.Suchinformationis available intra or inter-organizationally in government sectors, which aids and facilitates processing and analysis of data. That should improve use of information in the process of the responsible agents’ decisions in the local administration.
