Using the dependent variable of Indonesia e-government ranking (PeGI) issued by the Ministry of Communication. The independent variable used in this study is Degree of Decentralization ratio (RDD), Local Government Financial Dependency Ratio (RKKD), Ratio of Locally-generated Revenue Effectiveness (PAD), and Economic Growth (GRDP) as a moderating variable. Purposive sampling method are used in this study. This study uses sampling criteria of the PeGI. Those criteria are divided into five dimensions (policy, institutional, infrastructure, applications, and planning). A sample of 220 cities/ municipalities meets with those criteria. The data used in this research are taken from the Realization of the Regional Budget Reports (APBD) and the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) in 2012-2015.
