European Public Administration Information Systems on the Internet.
Ruiz, Maria Jesus Fernandez; Ullate, Jose Maria Angos; Aguaron, Isaac Bolea
One of the principal challenges in public administration is adapting to needs derived from the application of new technologies that impact directly on managing as well as transmitting information and in supplying it accurately to the citizens. The Bangemann Report calls attention to the important role played in the development of the information society by public administrations who should dedicate serious efforts and resources to the innovation and development of information as an added value with democratizing effects in society. The current situation of the European public administration information systems on the Internet is analyzed through a statistical bibliographic study measuring the following parameters: producers; subject coverage; services; whether of added value or not; the legal framework; electronic publications; use of the classic documentation tools to structure information; use of GIS; database management; date of creation; update frequency; implmentation of helps to locate information; confidentiality/privacy of the information; cost and quality control. From the analysis of the European public administration information systems on the Internet, different conclusions are obtained that allow for a more standardized design with improvements in the quality of the information and a better cost control. Analysis is performed on the use of systems which, based on those already existing and used in public administrations, permit the publication of this information on the Internet. It appears that public administration should increase the use of new information systems such as the Internet. This will result in greater efficiency in the development of its functions and, therefore in better service to the citizens. (Contains 21 references.) (Author)
