Abstract

The paper deals with current trends of information technologies in government decision making. In our opinion information mechanisms and state decision-making technologies take on special significance. The information field of the state decision-making process is formed by three main types of communication: communications, through which state decision makers receive information on the state of affairs in society or in its individual segments; communication in decision-making centers, allowing to coordinate the positions of interested parties and to develop mutually acceptable solutions; communications that provide support for state policy, its legitimation, communicating the content of the adopted decisions to the performers and receiving feedback. The main trend in the development of information influence technologies in government decision-making zones was identified in connection with the state’s interest in “public relations” (PR) technologies. It was thus emphasized that state relations with the public should be formed not as a result of changes in the institutional order and structural shifts in the political space, but as a result of the skillful management of communication processes and the creation of effective channels of communication between citizens and the authorities. We made the conclusion that information impact technologies are resource-intensive, their use involves the involvement of relevant specialists, financial support for campaigns, the establishment of preferential relations with the media, the use of administrative and other resources.
