Human Resource Management, Computers, and Organization Theory.
Garson, G. David
In an attempt to provide a framework for research and theory building in public management information systems (PMIS), state officials responsible for computing in personnel operations were surveyed. The data were applied to hypotheses arising from a recent model by Bozeman and Bretschneider, attempting to relate organization theory to management information systems in the public sector. Survey data are used to examine 10 propositions arising from the Bozeman and Bretschneider model and a research agenda related to these hypotheses is outlined. Survey findings bring into question the model's assumptions about the nature of the differences between private-sector management information systems (MIS) PMIS. The data are illustrated through 10 tables and 34 references are included. (Author/SM)
