Abstract: Worldwide, e-government is becoming very important in providing public services. Successful implementation of e-government depends on two sides. One side represents government with their view of e-government implementation, and at another side are citizens’, NGO’s and private sector as users of e-government services with their needs and views of e-government services. So, to make the successful implementation of e-government services, the government needs to take into account wishes (needs for digital services) of their citizens’. In that way, the government will prevent low-level of adoption and usage of e-government services, which is connected especially with developing countries. To address this issue, this study will try to identify key determinants affecting citizens’ adoption and usage of e-government services in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For that purpose, study adopted UTAUT model to identify and explore determinants of citizens’ adoption of e-government services.
