Standardized solutions for eGovernment challenges
Background Aim Scope eBook Contacts
Nowadays European governments look towards and welcome new eCommerce and B2G solutions to realize financial savings and meet EC Directives. GS1 is ready to take advantage of this situation and demonstrate successful adoption of the GS1 System and Standards to the governmental agencies. The answer to the growing governmental interest for the application of standardized solutions could be the GS1 System, which would be a useful toolbox for eGovernment solutions. For the recently occurred governmental need GS1 has to provide a complete and precise answer which meets every requirement, in order that GS1 Standards and Solutions could take service with the new eGovernment sector.
Several GS1 in Europe MOs have established certain connections with the public sector. More and more fruitful co-operation is taken between the GS1 MO’s and the different departments of public administration, under which GS1 Standards support different eGovernment services and work processes. Such cooperation has been established in the field of e-procurement, healthcare, waste management, customs, anti-counterfeiting, defense sector and so on.
The aim of the eGovernment activity is to keep on dealing with eGovernment, join together the results and the resources of the projects ran in previous years and move forward in order to build new co-operations with the state / public sector. MOs can efficiently help and support each other with sharing their plans and experiences in the field of eGovernment. In the long run the eGovernment activity is going to ensure a wider application of GS1 standards in the state / public sector across eGovernment solutions.
Continue the work processes of the previous eGovernment related projects as an ongoing activity. Collect case studies from the MOs and maintain the web repository for the case studies. Also keep in touch with the ‘External Relations’ activity and ensure inputs for their work.
One of the ‘eGovernment Ongoing Activity 2010’ project’s deliverable was to develop a case study collection on different national eGovernment implementations. The eBook is a collection of case studies about GS1 Standards’ implementations in eGovernment sorted by the different countries.
The main objective of this work was to collect and share a summary of best practices for all GS1 Member Organizations to help them along their eGovernment activities in their own countries, for those who intend to cooperate in new sectors and for those who are planning to start eGovernment activities. The participating fourteen GS1 Member Organizations are the following:
• GS1 Austria
