  • Switzerland makes progress in public eProcurement

    The Swiss Confederation is a step closer to the realisation of electronic public procurement (eProcurement) procedures. The Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics (Office Fédéral des Constructions et de la Logistique - OCFL, in French) has recently provided for tender submission in electronic format besides the paper-based equivalent.

    Tenders are already widely submitted in electronic form for the procurement of supplies or services. This practice has been extended to construction procurement. The OCFL's calls for tenders documents now stipulate that an entire bid must also be submitted in electronic form (CD or DVD).

  • Switzerland sets new framework for e-government

    The steering board E-Government Switzerland has commissioned a detailed planning for the e-government from 2016. The collaboration between confederation, cantons and communities agreed on the guiding principle of fast, transparent and economical electronic authority services for the population, economy and administration. The current framework agreement runs out at the end of next year.

    A group of e government experts from all state levels support the office E-Government Switzerland as an extended project team. The steering board is intent on focusing national efforts and to prioritise the projects more specifically. The interpretive documents developed by the project group are supposed to be an instrument for a more efficient and effective implementation of the e-government across all federal levels. They will be presented to the confederation, cantons and communities for consultation in the spring.

  • Switzerland: Cantons count the cost of online voting

    Residents of four municipalities in canton Geneva will be able to cast their ballots online in Sunday’s nationwide votes.

    But critics of the electronic voting pilot project say that it offers no real advantages and is a waste of money.

  • Switzerland: E-government fails to connect with the Swiss

    Government efforts to reach out to the population via the internet are foundering because of security fears and a general lack of awareness, according to a study.

    Only one in ten Swiss makes use of online services provided by the local, cantonal and federal authorities despite much publicity promoting e-government.

  • Switzerland: E-government site proves too ambitious

    An internet site launched by the Swiss authorities will not be as ambitious as originally planned.

  • Switzerland: E-government unpopular

    Only 12 per cent of Swiss make use of online facilities provided by local, cantonal and federal authorities, according to a new survey. The study - published on Tuesday - found that people recognise the advantages of communicating electronically with the authorities but are concerned about security and data protection.
  • Switzerland: Electronic signature soon to be valid

    Same worth as hand-written signature

  • Umsetzung der E-Government-Strategie Schweiz schreitet voran

    An seiner zweiten Sitzung konnte der Steuerungsausschuss E-Government feststellen, dass die Umsetzung der E-Government-Strategie Schweiz gut angelaufen ist.

  • Volksabstimmung: Schweiz führt E-Pass ein

    Der E-Pass, der biometrische Reisepass, der in den letzten Monaten in der Schweiz viel Anlass für Diskussionen gab, wird nun doch eingeführt. Mit einer äußerst knappen Mehrheit von 5500 Stimmen (50,1 Prozent) für den E-Pass hat das Mitzittern der Befürworter seit heute Nachmittag ein Ende. Eine eindeutige Ablehnung des umstrittenen Passes gab es in der Westschweiz und im Tessin, in der deutschsprachigen Schweiz herrschte ein uneinheitliches Bild. Die Stimmbeteiligung war mit 37 Prozent eher niedrig.

  • Voraussetzungen vorhanden für erfolgreiches E-Government in der Schweiz - Koordination erwünscht

    Praktisch alle Verwaltungen der drei föderalen Ebenen bieten heute im Internet umfassende Informationen an. Dies ist der erste Schritt des E-Governments in der Schweiz. Bereits bestehen mehrere Transaktionsaktionsangebote für die Bevölkerung und Wirtschaft als nächsten Schritt. Aber solche Angebote sind heute noch zu wenig vorhanden. Sie lassen sich durch Koordination stark ausbauen. Kantone, Gemeinden und Bund sind bereit dazu. Dies zeigt eine repräsentative Studie des Forschungsinstituts gfs.bern, welche im Auftrag der Kantone und des Informatikstrategieorgans Bund durchgeführt worden ist.

    Die Schweizer Behörden sind bereit für E-Government. Dies zeigt die Studie «Verwaltung und E-Government» des Forschungsinstituts gfs.bern deutlich auf. Die Studie wurde von der Staatsschreiberkonferenz und vom Informatikstrategieorgan Bund (ISB) in Auftrag gegeben. Sie zeigt den unterschiedlichen Stand und die Entwicklung des E-Government in Gemeinden, Kantonen und Bund.

  • Wettlauf der Anbieter beim Aufbau des Schweizer E-Health-Netzes

    Der Wettbewerb unter den Schweizer IT-Dienstleistern, die sich am Aufbau der nationalen E-Health-Infrastruktur beteiligen wollen, hat die heisse Phase erreicht. Da die Strategie des Bundesrats vorsieht, dass das zukünftige Schweizer E-Health-Netzwerk dezentral aus regionalen Projekten zusammenwachsen soll, müssen die Dienstleister jetzt ihre Interessen über Pilotprojekte bei den Kantonen sichern. Pointiert gesagt rennen sie bei ihrem Buhlen um Aufträge den zuständigen kantonalen Stellen beinahe die Türen ein.

    Die wichtigsten E-Health-Projekte laufen bereits in Genf, Basel, St. Gallen, Luzern und dem Tessin. Für die beteiligten Dienstleister geht es dabei nicht nur um Prestige, sondern auch darum, wer seine Standards und Prozesse auf nationaler Ebene durchsetzen kann.
