Adisasmita (2011:91) admits that the measurement of the performance represents a management tool. Further on, the authors describe the utilization of information technology and they take into account Daft (2003:149), Griffin (2004:227), Gurendrawati (2014) and others’ points of view on the topic.

The internal control system, which is an integral process in actions and activities performed continuously, and the implementation of regional financial accounting system, which represents series of procedures ranging from the process of data collection, record keeping, classification and compaction of transactions or financial events, are discussed in the next sections. The Research Hypothesis section presents 4 research hypothesis and the third section explains 7 research methods which can be used. These methods are:  Research Design, Research Population and Sample, Source and Data Collection Technique, Variable Operationalization, Research Model, Data Testing and Design of Hypothesis Testing.

The last section illustrates the results and discusses them. The research equation reveals that any increase of 100% in information technology utilization will improve the performance of government agencies by 18,3%, that any increase of 100% in internal control will improve the performance of government agencies by 37,3% or the fact that if the utilization of information technology, internal control system and the implementaion of regional financial accounting are considered constant, then the improving of the performance of government agencies remain 47,5%.
