New EU publication on eGovernment for local and regional administrations

Local and regional administrations have an important role both in modernising administrations and services in areas of importance for society, and in taking responsibility for directly providing their citizens with services shaped to meet expectations in an increasingly digitalised world.

The European Commission actively supports the acceleration of the digital transformation of governments at all levels – national, regional and local through the EU eGovernment Action Plan 2016-2020. To help local and regional authorities find their way in these existing EU instruments and funding opportunities, the Commission recently published a Guidance document.

In this guidance public authorities will find inspiration, tools and specific information on how to implement eGovernment initiatives and find EU funding for modernising the public administration and services using digital solutions. The document notably deals with:

  • Projects and legislation linked to open data and open services
  • Initiatives and recommendations on open decision-making processes and user-friendly services
  • Legislation and existing standards on public procurement and innovation procurement

 

The Guidance is available here
