Enabling the interoperability of built environment information systems in municipalities
The purpose of the project is to enable seamless interoperability of built environment information systems in municipalities. In addition, the project improves interaction between the developers of legislation and the parties promoting the interoperability of information systems.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
Information systems related to electronic permit applications concerning the built environment in municipalities do not always work together smoothly, which may complicate the transfer of information and the interaction between different parties. The purpose of this project is to promote the interoperability of information systems.
The project updates the open interfaces of municipal service and information systems developed in the Built environment and housing services of the SADe programme. SADe is the Action Programme on eServices and eDemocracy that ended at the end of 2015. The programme produced electronic public sector services for national use.
The project is aimed at integrating the interaction taking place in statute drafting in the Ministry of the Environment into the development of interoperability. There is currently no cooperation between the development work and the drafting of statutes.
Objective: enabling the compatibility of information systems and interaction
The objective of the experimental project is to find a natural dialogue between parties promoting the interoperability of municipal information systems and the authorities developing legislation. In addition, the aim is to create best practices so that the work resulting from changes in statutes will not cause unnecessary and unexpected costs to local authorities.
The aim is to also develop operating models that enable information system updates to support more rapidly the introduction of new statutes in municipalities. Cooperation requires clearly defined roles: those who prepare the changes in statutes should not interfere too much in the development of information systems in municipalities, nor should developers of software interfere too much in the drafting of statutes.
The project also surveys ideas for how suppliers of information systems can help and provide support in statute drafting and collects relevant (electronic) operating practices.
Parties promoting the interoperability of information systems and officials developing legislation in local authorities.
