Public Sector ICT Strategy

In January 2012 the Ministry of Finance set up a project to devise a strategy for the utilisation of common ICT throughout public administration. The formulation of the strategy was chaired by the Ministry of Finance as an open process, with hundreds of people from public administration, from business enterprises and from NGOs taking part. The vision in the strategy reaches to 2020, and policy approaches and measure to the end of 2015. The strategy highlights why smoothly functioning ICT is crucial for the operation and development of public administration
