E-Government for Distributed Autonomous Administrations

Daniela Feldkamp, Wolf Siberski, Barbara Thonssen, Holger Wache

E-Government is no longer a concern of single public administration units. State wide E-Government strategies, E-Government architectures and frameworks are established now and public administrations are willing to suit the action to the word. Also, semantically enriched techniques for service description, discovery and invocation are ready to come into practice. The challenge is the appropriate use of all the relevant parts to meet the technical, organizational and legal requirements. The paper at hand provides an approach, how available techniques can be implemented in a light-weighted way to build one-stop E-Government services on completely decentralized components. This allows to leave the control to where it belongs (every service contributor is responsible for its parts), to execute a service according to the local ICT but at the same time to meet the requirements for automated cross-administration cooperation. The introduced approach is illustrated with the example of Switzerland.
