Chapter 9: Bureaucratic readiness for smart city initiatives: a mini study in Yogyakarta City, Indonesia

Arif Budy Pratama and Satria Aji Imawan


Recognising that most of Indonesia’s smart city programmes are initiated by local governments, this chapter argues that perceived bureaucratic readiness matters in smart city implementation. Drawing from a qualitative study in Yogyakarta City, it identifies four dimensions that shape the bureaucracy's perceived readiness for smart city initiatives: political and administrative commitment; legal support; information technology infrastructure and expertise; and governance strategies and structures. Since our proposed dimensions are exploratory in nature, further studies may develop and test them as measures of perceived bureaucratic readiness.
