Communication platform of the federal government, provinces, municipalities, communities and partners for eGovernment topics

BLSG logo

A modern, secure, flexible and scalable IT infrastructure is essential for eGovernment. In the process of digitalising public administration and services, recommendations were developed, and standards were adapted and implemented.

The exchange of information between the parties is carried out over a dedicated communication platform, called the eGovernment reference server. It is continually being developed and is one of the most important information sources for the Federal Government, the provinces, municipalities and local communities, as well as for businesses and project partners in various branches. All the recommendations that are cooperated on by the working groups (on the basis of the cooperation papers ) are published on the platform in the form of conventions, information, best practices, white papers and use cases either as results from the working groups, recommendations or standards.

The current organisational form of the BLSG working groups is divided into four (permanent) working groups –Infrastructure/Interoperability (AG-II), Integration/Access (AG-IZ), Law/Security (AG-RS) and Presentation/Standard data (AG-PS), and individually assigned project groups .

An overview of prior documents from these working and project groups can be found on the reference server under Conventions , where they are updated on a regular basis. For those interested, it is possible to sign up with an external mailing list  from these working groups.

Some central developments, services and measures are introduced in the following sections.
