eGovernment – Policy making• Information Society has been a long-standing objective of the EU• Significant progress can be and should be made by – developing an integrated and inclusive policy approach that – involves all relevant state and civil society actors in the – design, implementation and evaluation of policy initiatives• eGovernment policy is a dynamic set of – regulations and incentives – provision and absorption – providing services• Dynamism comes from the – changing regulatory environment and is – facilitated by a negotiated and mutually accepted quality of service for – citizens, businesses, and non-business civil entities
Policy modelling• Complex interactions across the interfaces between policy makers and actors of civil society complicates the forecast of the impact of the different policy measures.• The goal of policy modelling, is to find a short-, medium- and long-term dynamic equilibrium between policy decisions and civil society responses.• Policy modelling should cover several areas, such as – budgetary issues, – administrative, public and constitutional law, – data privacy, adoption of open source software, taxation, data privacy, interoperability, – cross-border activities, – energy, environment, and other non-pecuniary dimensions.• Most challenging elements of policy modelling is to find the – optimal portfolio among community and private engagement, – making the right choices between the supply or demand driven development. – good balance between the user absorption capacity and technology-driven development of information service penetration.
