Key Elements for electronic Local Authorities' Networks

Objective

By identifying 50 best practices among 700 local government websites from 15 countries of the EU, KEeLAN will carry out a benchmarking exercise to produce appropriate models and roadmaps for future electronic government at local and regional level. It will also focus on local ICT priorities useful for projects co-funded by the European Commission, in particular European research and technology development projects under the IST programme. The overall aim is to provide local administrations in Europe and the European Union with a most relevant tool package for eEurope through extended and advanced e-government. Outcomes will be mainly disseminated through the European multimedia information and publishing frame of ELANET/CEMR as well as the management network of PricewaterhouseCoopers. By identifying 50 best practices among 700 local government websites from 15 countries of the EU, KEeLAN will carry out a benchmarking exercise to produce appropriate models and roadmaps for future electronic government at local and regional level.

OBJECTIVES
By identifying 50 best practices among 700 local and regional government websites from 15 EU countries, KEeLAN will carry out a benchmarking exercise to produce appropriate models and roadmaps for future electronic government at local level. It will also focus on ICT local priorities that are useful for projects co-funded by the European Commission, in particular RTD under IST and the Innovative Actions programme of DG Regio. The overall aim is to provide local administrations in Europe and the EC with a relevant tool package for eEurope through extended e-government. The study will develop objective data and benchmarking tools against which eEurope implementation may be measured over the next few years.

Objective (1): to develop a vision and a strategic approach towards internet based e-government for local authorities, a tailor-made marching route that makes best use of IT infrastructure and of the new possibilities offered by the European research and IT market. This will allow to measure present EU developments against worldwide technological trends.

Objective (2): to stimulate local authorities, through intensive and extensive dissemination of results, in their transition process towards modernisation, integrated access platforms and advanced new generation web services to citizens.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The tailor-made marching route will be reached by:
a) identifying and benchmarking web front-office best practices looking for e-government key elements;
b) studying how these practices incorporate new ICT solutions;
c) providing different approach models from national strategies for e-government deployment;
d) creating roadmaps to implement these key elements for success;
e) elaborating advise for strategies that accelerate definition and ongoing of e-government projects;
f) working out a decision matrix for local decision-makers enabling them to choose the roadmap fitting to situation, objectives and possibilities (political, financial, organisational, technical, personnel);
g) offering support tools for successfully planning and carrying out e-government projects. Intensive and extensive dissemination of results will mainly consist of:
h) confronting results with national/regional strategies in four major conferences (EISCO 2002 and three regional workshops);
i) activating a pro e-government web-site as part of the multimedia information and dissemination webs frame organised by ELANET/CEMR, covering all European countries through the associations of local and regional governments, the PricewaterhouseCoopers management network and the websites of the EU projects that will collaborate with KEeLAN;
j) the project will generate its own dynamic, creating possibilities for further dissemination, training and consultancy.
