Studies focusing on local administration websites started in e-government field, where website management models are based on technological criteria, undervaluing relevant dimensions in the management of these organizations: transparency, relations network, etc. These dimensions are emphasized in intellectual capital field, in which there are various studies about website management. However, these innovative studies are of exploratory nature and do not present any models based on these theories to be used in the management of local administration websites. This paper proposes a model which considers relevant dimensions of intellectual capital in the development of municipal councils’ websites—Services, Democratic, Relational and Organizational e-Capital. The model was applied to analyze the contribution of the Simplex Autárquico 2010/2011 Programme to the digital capital of Portuguese municipal councils’ websites, verifying that it has led to an improvement in the digital capital of 98.4% of the websites, with a higher contribution in the case of Services e-Capital.

Badania nad stronami internetowymi administracji samorządowej rozpoczęły się w obszarze e-rządu, gdzie modele zarządzania stronami internetowymi oparte są o kryteria technologiczne, przy czym zaniedbuje się istotne wymiary zarządzania tymi organizacjami: przejrzystość, sieć relacji, itp. Wymiary te podkreślane są w obszarze kapitału intelektualnego, w którym istnieją rozmaite badania na temat zarządzania stronami internetowymi. Jednakże te innowacyjne badania mają charakter eksploracyjny i nie prezentują żadnych modeli, które byłyby oparte na tych teoriach, a które można by wykorzystać w zarządzaniu stronami internetowymi administracji samorządowej. Niniejszy artykuł proponuje model, który bierze pod uwagę istotne wymiary kapitału intelektualnego w rozwoju stron internetowych rad gmin ‒ e-kapitał usługowy, demokratyczny, relacyjny i organizacyjny. Model został wykorzystany do analizy wkładu programu Simplex Autárquico 2010/2011 w kapitał cyfrowy stron internetowych rad gmin w Portugalii. Dokonana weryfikacja potwierdziła, iż przyczynił się on do poprawy kapitału cyfrowego stron o 98,4%, przy czym wkład ten był wyższy w przypadku e-kapitału usług.
