To shorten times and costs of the projects to boost the diffusion of the e-government in local bodies, with the reuse of technological solutions that have already been used by other bodies to modernize the civil service, was the goal of the announcement promoted by CNIPA, the national centre for informatics in the civil service, on behalf of the innovation and technology ministry French Government. The innovation and technology minister, Lucio Stanca, spoke about this project in Milan this morning on the occasion of the presentation of the Forum PA 2006.
The project is funded with 60 million euro. The announcement will be published in the gazette within a few days. This money will finance regions and local bodies that will use programs that have been already made by other local governments during the first phase of the e-government plan that has involved around 4000 civil service offices in Italy.
The minister said that this financing would move over 200 million euro of resources and would produce savings not only economic but also on the times that are necessary for the planning and development phases of the e-government projects. Stanca said that this initiative would involve around 2000 towns. He also stressed this is a new further step of the government policies on the civil service that must be considered a real reform of this sector.
