Acting Out the Swedish e-Government Action Plan: mind and mend the gap
University of Borås, School of Business and IT.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish Government has made the decision to reclaim its world leadership in the eGov ranking circus within two years. This is indeed easier said than done; policy documents alone will not overcome the age old gaps between the three layers of public administration containing some six hundred independently managed agencies. At best, it may prove possible to make the agencies in the state sector capability cloud march to the whole_of_government tune. Included in the problems faced in the attempted paradigm shift are (i) unrealistic time scale, (ii) governance is not possible without an enterprise architecture, (iii) the modeling of the needs of the end user cannot be left solely to individual agencies, (iv) clusters and federations must be defined by means of federation level agreements in addition to service level agreements, (v) low adherence level to EU’s directives regarding e.g. Services and Public Information Re-usage will be rewarded with low eGov EU ranking, and (vi) there are very few mandatory standards and profiles for Swedish agencies and no Swedish National Interoperability Framework on the horizon. Among the positive signs are that very ambitious work is taking place in both the defense and e-health sectors. To compensate for the unrealistic time scale, and to secure public value, it is an absolute must for forums with reference to eGov discussions, architecting work and information exchange to be established as soon as possible.
