چکیده مقاله:

This study aims to explore the role of technology in fostering transparency in government operations, identifying both the opportunities provided by technological advancements and the barriers to their effective implementation. This qualitative research employed semi-structured interviews with ۲۲ participants, including government officials, IT professionals, policy makers, and academics specializing in public administration and technology. Participants were selected using purposive sampling to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the impact of technology on transparency. Theoretical saturation was achieved, ensuring that no additional data would provide further insights. Three main themes were identified: Technological Advancements, Impact on Transparency, and Barriers to Implementation. Technological Advancements encompassed categories such as Data Integration, Real-Time Access, Automation, Security and Privacy, and User-Friendly Interfaces. Impact on Transparency included Public Trust, Accountability, and Policy Development. Barriers to Implementation were identified as Technological Barriers, Organizational Resistance, Legal and Regulatory Challenges, and Financial Constraints. The study concludes that while technological innovations hold significant potential to enhance transparency in government resource allocation, their implementation is frequently hindered by a range of technological, organizational, and financial barriers. Addressing these challenges through tailored policy interventions and strategic planning is crucial for capitalizing on the benefits of technology in public administration.This study aims to explore the role of technology in fostering transparency in government operations, identifying both the opportunities provided by technological advancements and the barriers to their effective implementation.
