Subject: Re: [egov-ms] GIF Best Practice

As a starter I would suggest you have a look at the presentations given at last week's very succesful workshop in Brussels.  All the slides are available at  http://events.oasis-open.org/home/egov-brussels-workshop/2009/proceedings

Many are very relevant to your shopping list not least the ones given by guys from Germany, Switzerland, UK and the World Tax Organisation.  Equally relevant in many of the presentations are instances of weaknesses and gaps in these areas and I would hope the Member Section going forward could be the catalyst for correcting some of these problems

Subject: [egov-ms] GIF Best Practice

HI all,


You may remember that last year I was writing a GIF for a Caribbean country and asked for best practice from around the world. John Ross and I are now doing something similar in the Middle East, but with a much wider scope, so this is another appeal for information.


Last time, I was looking at the basic GIF document and technical standards. This time, as well as that, we have to cover:


·         Making the best use of shared services such as shared gateways and other infrastructure

·         Web services

·         Process modelling

·         Metadata standards (especially use of Dublin Core in the public sector)

·         Data standards (e.g. names and addresses)

·         A guide to creating and using taxonomies and thesauri


I already know what has been happening in the UK in this area, and I know there is a lot in New Zealand, which I will be looking at (although Colin, if you have any links to follow, that might save some random searching). We also have people from Cyprus in the team, and they know what has been done there. I would welcome information on what has been produced elsewhere in the world or any information on work in progress. Also, lists of the sort of services that people share as common infrastructure would be good.


You can be assured that John and I will investigate any pointers you can give us and will share whatever we can at the end of the project. The client is keen to be seen as a leader in its region, so I don’t think there will be a problem in sharing the results of our work.


Thanks in advance.
