This paper addresses a type of wicked problem in the design of information systems in the context of G2G e-Government information systems. These problems, called power issues, have all of the characteristics of wicked problems; however, they are differentiated from them because their roots are based in power. The Power Perspectives Framework from Bradshaw-Camball and Murray is utilized in the context of these G2G systems to provide a framework for the identification and classification of power issues and Courtney’s DSS paradigm is extended to assist in resolving them by incorporating the power perspective into the methodology.
