All municipalities have any application of internal management, although they are the municipalities of more than 50,000 inhabitants who have a higher percentage of availability.

The lack of financial resources, with a 24.4 per cent of municipalities gallegos, followed by a lack of training with 19.6 per cent, are the two main barriers that are the municipalities of Galicia when optimising the electronic administration.
