Abstract: This paper aims to address the problem of the appearance of the antipattern of hidden requirements in IT projects for public administration. It discusses the impact of the law of public procurement and describes several negative consequences of hidden requirements (also viewed as technical debt). It then proposes a model for the activities of business analysts in public administration who act according to recent business analysis guidelines. Finally, it presents the results of structured interviews with participants of IT projects for public administration. Empirical studies confirm the appearance of hidden requirements in such projects, and these studies support the proposed solution with the positive opinions of practitioners.
