Aims: The multiplicity of management and incoherence of government organizations is one of the most important challenges of metropolitan management in Tehran. This study aimed to investigate the feasibility of integrated management of Tehran from the perspective of government institutions.
Methodology: This applied-descriptive research was conducted in 2022 in Tehran. The effective indicators were designed using content analysis. The research tool was a researcher-made questionnaire. The statistical population was the managers and urban planning specialists of Tehran. To determine the criteria width, the AHP method was used to emphasize expert opinions, and the TOPSIS method was used to prioritize indicators.
Findings: The priority was observed in the criterion of "the existence of an extra-organizational center" in the cohesion index. In the management structure index, the priority was observed in the "correlation between organizational managers" and "the existence of a systematic view" and the least importance was observed in "the existence of a common view among the work actions of the custodian organizations". In the good governance index, the priority was observed in the "public participation" and "reporting to the competent institutions" and the least importance was observed in the "knowledge exchange meetings". In the participatory structure index, the highest and lowest priorities are related to the "effective interaction with citizens" and "the existence of information infrastructure", respectively. In the coordination index, the first and last priorities were in the sub-indices of "coordination of organizations in charge of urban affairs” and "coordination of human and financial resources". According to the TOPSIS method, the indicators of cohesion, management structure, governance, organizational structure, and coordination were the priorities for urban management by government organizations.
Conclusion: The results indicate that coherence, management structure, urban governance, coordination, and organizational structure have respectively priority for the realization of integrated urban management concerning government institutions.
