Abstract

The increasing use of collaborative technologies and group support systems in the budgeting process has already begun to affect the procedures and outcomes of that process. Even though sizable bodies of research exist in both group support systems (GSS) and participative budgeting (PB), there is a paucity of evidence on how GSS have impacted the budgeting process and outcomes. The objective of this research is to integrate the extant literatures on GSS and PB into a theoretical model that is then used to empirically examine selected impacts of these technologies. The theoretical model is an adaptation and extension of the Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen 1991). A survey will be used to test hypotheses arising from the model.
