Poland has begun testing a new version of its Electronic Platform of Public Administration Services (ePUAP). The new version adds more eGovernment services, and is testing integration with external services, such as those for social security and local public administrations.
Development of ePUAP version 2 is being co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The test was announced on 1 June. Poland’s IT project centre (CPI) is asking testers for detailed comments on the new user interface and documentation. Not all parts of the ePUAP testing platform will work, warns CPI. For example, some or all of the editable PDF forms may not be functional.
The eGovernment portal centralises communications between enterprises, citizens and various public administrations. The aim is to simplify government services, cut red tape, and make government services more available and at lower costs.
The first generation of the platform was developed between 2004 and 2008, also co-funded by the ERDF. The service platform is supervised by the Polish Ministry of Administration and Digitisation.
The new version could go into production in September, according to a blog on the Polish Computerworld web site.
