e-Government Interoperability: A Review of Government Interoperability Frameworks in Selected Countries

The Review provides a comparative analysis of eight existing GIFs of Australia, Brazil, Denmark, the European Union, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. It serves as a useful resource for government officials, the corporate sector and civil society involved in the development or revision of a GIF. This Review focuses on how GIFs in different countries were developed, the principles that animate them, the technical standards they mandated and/or recommend, the way these GIFs are managed, and the implementation and compliance mechanisms they established.

New Zealand e-Government Interoperability Framework

The e-GIF is a collection of policies and standards endorsed for New Zealand government information technology (IT) systems. It has the following benefits: 1) Helps government agencies more easily work together electronically; 2) Makes systems, knowledge and experience reusable from one agency to another; and 3) Reduces the effort required to deal with government online by encouraging consistency of approach.

European Interoperability Framework for Pan-European eGovernment Services - Version 2.0

This document establishes the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) to support the pan-European delivery of electronic government services. It represents the highest-ranking module of a comprehensive methodological tool kit for implementing pan-European eGovernment services.

eGovernment, Interoperability and Innovation

eGovernment is faced with a number of complex issues, such as Internet security, data protection, and a multilingual user environment. There are two essential interdependent ingredients to surmounting these challenges: interoperability and innovation. Innovative solutions developed by the ICT industry promote interoperability. Meeting consumers’ expectations for interoperability must remain a constant effort on the part of industry, and policy makers have a role in encouraging industry efforts in this area.

United Kingdom - e-Government Interoperability Framework Version 6.1

The e-GIF defines the technical policies and specifications governing information flows across government and the public sector. These cover interconnectivity, data integration, e-services access and content management. Version 6.1 contains the high level policy statements, management, implementation and compliance regimes. Technical policies and specifications are contained in the Technical Standards Catalogue.

APDIP e-Note 7 - Open Technologies: Catalyst for transformation

An information and communications technology (ICT) ecosystem includes not only the hardware and software but also the policies, processes, applications, partnerships and stakeholders that together make up the technology environment for a country, government or organization. This APDIP e-Note explains the value of open ICT ecosystems and elaborates on their principles and building blocks in simple terms.
