Offering advice and coordination in legal matters

By coordinating problem-solving and simplifying knowledge transfer in the area of legal issues, the public authorities are supported when addressing and clarifying legal issues.


In accordance with the 2020 framework agreement on eGovernment cooperation, the Confederation and the cantons ensure that the need for legislation is evaluated early on and new legal foundations to be created are included as sub-projects in the project planning and execution process in a timely manner. The framework agreement also designates legal tasks and challenges in the implementation of eGovernment projects. Appropriate resources support the early identification of existing legal obstacles and any need for new legislation when implementing eGovernment projects. Knowledge transfer between administrations and project managers is made significantly easier and faster.

Basic mission

The eJustice.CH Association fulfils the task of a coordination office for legal issues within the eGovernment environment. The dissemination of the most important legal findings and results among public bodies is ensured by means of appropriate electronic publication resources. This also includes the findings of the intercantonal legal specialist group and the advisory services provided.
