Question for written answer E-004816-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nicola Caputo (S&D)

 Subject:  Accelerating the digital transformation of government
 Answer in writing 

Digital public services reduce administrative burden on businesses and citizens by making their interactions with public administrations faster and efficient, more convenient and transparent, and less costly. In addition, using digital technologies as an integrated part of governments' modernisation strategies can unlock further economic and social benefits for society as a whole.

The Commission says that by 2020, public administrations and public institutions in the European Union should be open, efficient and inclusive, providing borderless, personalised, user-friendly, end-to-end digital public services to all citizens and businesses in the EU.

— How does the Commission plan to accelerate the digital transformation of governments in the EU and what measures will it propose in order to build the EU strategy for eGovernment 2016-2020?

— Will it launch a Europe-wide digital training plan involving public employees, in particular for those Member States where digitalisation of public administration and development of technologies facilitating the use of e-government are only in their infancy?

— Will it plan pilot projects with EU governments in order to modernise their digital public services?
