History has shown that local, state, and federal governments are not well-equipped with the flexible and responsive abilities necessary to manage the short supply chain life-cycle inherent in providing appropriate disaster relief resources in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, in these unique situations these inefficiencies can cause considerable harm to the citizenry, the financial economy, and the physical infrastructure of the affected area. In this study, we provide an examination of the cross-agency capabilities and relationships that impact the flow of information within disaster relief supply chains. Through an inter-organizational systems approach, a theoretical framework is provided to assess the efficacy of e-government dynamic capabilities in disaster relief supply chains. Future research plans include further developing this conceptual understanding of e-government dynamic capabilities through a qualitative research approach. The results of analyzing the qualitative data will aid in the further development of the proposed research model.
