Welcome to eGovernment Switzerland!
Thrust of eGovernment cooperation in Switzerland from 2016 defined
In December 2014, the steering committee established which overarching objective the Confederation, the cantons and the communes jointly want to purse from 2016. The members of the steering committee underlined the need for user-oriented further development and optimisation of the administration through eGovernment. In the future, the offering and use of online services should be commonplace and integrated into all aspects of daily life for the administration, businesses and the general public. The objective which should be enshrined in the 2016 eGovernment strategy is thus that eGovernment is a matter of course: fast, transparent and efficient electronic authority services for the population, businesses and the administration.
Open Government Data Strategy for Switzerland adopted
Within the scope of the «OGD Switzerland» project, the Federal IT Steering Unit has been developing an OGD strategy for Switzerland. This was adopted by the Federal Council on 16 April 2014. The OGD strategy determines the focus of the Federal Administration's activities in the area of OGD up until 2018 and is binding for the Confederation. It will be implemented in the competent departments and federal offices. In the interests of coordinated implementation of OGD at all federal levels, the Confederation is striving for OGD cooperation with the cantons and communes on the basis of this strategy. The strategy will be supplemented by a catalogue of measures.
