eGovernment Strategy Switzerland
On 24 January 2007, the Federal Council adopted a national eGovernment strategy. This eGovernment strategy Switzerland was developed in close cooperation with the cantons and the municipalities, under the direction of the Federal IT Steering Unit (FITSU). The strategy constitutes the basis for the Confederation, the cantons, and the municipalities to orient their efforts toward common goals. It also sets out principles, approaches, and instruments for implementation of these goals. The goal of the strategy is to enable both businesses and the population to carry out important transactions with the authorities electronically. The authorities in turn are called upon to modernise their business processes and to communicate electronically with each other. The national eGovernment strategy is a partial strategy of the "Strategy of the Federal Council
for an Information Society in Switzerland”.

The implementation of the strategy is decentralised but coordinated, under the supervision of a Steering Committee and a Programme Office. An Advisory Board assists these two bodies as well as the lead organisations for the implementation projects. The organisational structure of these coordination bodies is set out in the «Framework Agreement on eGovernment Cooperation of the Confederation and the cantons».
The projects to be coordinated and implemented are compiled in a catalogue.
