Published CPSV-AP version 2.0
The Core Public Service Vocabulary Application Profile (CPSV-AP) is a data model that has been developed in the context of a Working Group for describing public services and grouping them in business events.
The Working Group for version 1.00 of the CPSV-AP consisted of EUGO Network representatives from 10 Member States (Austria, Estonia, Finland, Greece, The Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Spain and Sweden). The main focus of the CPSV-AP has thus been the description of public services and business events on the Points of Single Contact which each Member State had to implement in the context of the Services Directive (2006/123/EC).
The CPSV-AP has been defined as an Application Profile of the Core Public Service Vocabulary (CPSV). An Application Profile is a specification that re-uses terms from one or more base standards, adding more specificity by identifying mandatory, recommended and optional elements to be used for a particular application, as well as recommendations for controlled vocabularies to be used.
Have a look at the leaflet explaining to have further detail of the business need, solution and benefits of using CPSV-AP:
We would like to inform you that the ISA² programme of the European Commission is in the process of reviewing and revising the Core Public Service Vocabulary Application Profile (CPSV-AP) since April 2016. The goal of this revision is to:
Meetings of the CPSV-AP Revision WG
The webinars will be organised for discussions in the Working Group on:
The handling of change requests will follow the process described in "Change management release and publication process for structural metadata specifications developed by the ISA² programme".
The approach for the revision and extension of the CPSV-AP this work will be based on the "Process and Methodology for Developing Core Vocabularies".
An initial proposal for the common data model was proposed to the Working Group as a basis for discussion. To facilitate the communication and discussion in the Working Group collaborative tools will be used.
Below you can find all the practical information on the tools used by the Working Group to collaborate. Please click the links if referred to another page.
|Integrated portfolio management of public services. The Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs created an extension of the CPSV to address local needs, as well as to cover the public service lifecycle. New classes and properties were introduced to cover information related to security, evaluation and the underlying Web Service(s) supporting the delivery of a public service. The extended CPSV is also the basis for the Estonian framework for the dynamic management of public service portfolios (focused on the evaluation of public services and the governance of their lifecycle).|
|The City of Ghent is currently publishing RDF in line with CPSV for local products.|
|In the context of the Business Lifecycle domain of eSENS, a work on the mapping of criteria and evidences is being under development. More specifically the mapping of requirements and evidences between the Greek, Spanish and Polish activity registration procedure for sanitary and tourism services provision is considered. The relative procedures and requested input have initially been described according to the CPSV-AP model.|

Manage portfolios of public services
The use of a common data model, such as the CPSV-AP, provides a standardised way of documenting public services and business events for grouping these public services.
Publication of descriptions of business events and related public services
A common data model for business events and public services, such as the CPSV-AP, enables the flexible exchange and integration of the different public service descriptions and facilitates the publication of this information on the point of single access.
Finding information about public services more easily
A common data model for describing public services and making it possible to group them logically into business and life events, such as the CPSV-AP, would assist public authorities in providing high-quality descriptions of public services from a user-centric perspective.
Build user-centric catalogues of public services at all levels from regional to a European federated catalogue
The use of a common data model such as the CPSV-AP for describing business and life events, and related public services, enables the flexible exchange and integration of service descriptions between the national/regional authorities and pan-European one-stop-shops.
