Towards E-Gov in Belgium - Situation in August 2002 [Working Paper 10-02]

This brief overview will consider e-gov achievements and plans at each policy level, together with the specific organizational and management systems that are being constructed for the purpose of implementing them. E-gov can be considered as a very large object to study. The aim of this paper is not to be exhaustive but to give an overview of the most significant initiatives in the area.

In Belgium e-gov is not an end in itself but is considered as a tool of the so-called “Copernicus Plan” (www.copernicus.be) to modernize the public service in order to achieve better service delivery to citizens, better functioning of the civil services and a simplification of administrative burdens.

In view of the e-gov realizations and planning in other countries, there are five Belgian e-gov achievements or implementation projects that catch the eye and could become benchmarks:

  • The existing intersection database for social security, with the social security smart card.
  • The system of electronic job vacancies, which is already functioning.
  • The digital identity card project.
  • The e-procurement project.
  • The project within the Flanders region to provide internet connections for citizens through their TV sets, thus allowing interactive communication with the authorities.

This brief overview will consider e-gov achievements and plans at each policy level, together with the specific organizational and management systems that are being constructed for the purpose of implementing them.
