The introduction of digital technology in the process of local self-government is an urgent task for modern Russia. The article assesses the conditions for the introduction of digital technologies at the municipal level of management, identifies barriers to the spread of innovative methods for making managerial decisions, including everyday issues of people's lives. Based on the statistical analysis, the authors of the article identified the subjects of the Russian Federation with a developed digital management system and, conversely, with the absence of such. It is shown that when using digital technologies the costs of the management process are reduced, bureaucratic delays in the preparation of the necessary documents for the population are eliminated, the opportunities for members of society to make managerial decisions are realized. The following were identified as the main barriers to innovation in local self-government: lack of IT-technology specialists, financial constraints, institutional imperfections and disagreements of management structures. In the leading regions, digital technologies adopted appropriate programs, created scientific potential. In outsider regions, financial constraints are the main obstacle to the introduction of digital technology. The creation of e-governments in municipalities will allow for an effective dialogue between authorities, business and the public.
