Description (short summary):
The document highlights the prioritised policy areas until 2010, indicates the responsible Government departments and defines the necessary coordination with municipalities and regions (county councils).
The primary objective of the action plan is for Sweden to regain a leading position within the eGovernment area by 2010 by having â€˜the worldâ€™s simplest Administrationâ€™. In other words, the Administration should be as simple as possible for as many as possible.
With the help of modern technique and other special measures, the Government intends to create an Administration which emanates from the needs of both the citizens and entrepreneurs.
The eGovernment action plan is intended to palliate several deficiencies which have been observed during the implementation of the 24-hour Public Administration strategy.
The action plan includes a number of action areas aimed at improving the legal, technical and economic conditions for the authoritiesâ€™ contacts with the citizens and entrepreneurs. Among other aspects, the information handling of the authorities will be made more efficient, information security should increase, and automatic IT-support for case handling and procurement will be introduced.
The Public Administration shall as much as possible use open standards and gradually free itself from the dependency on single platforms and solutions.
