LGAF = Local Government Access Framework at ÎšÎ•Î”ÎšÎ• (Coordination of Local Authorities in Greece). LGAF IS A PLATFORM: a. Supports the provision of Online Services to: a1) Local Citizens (e.g. Family Record Certificates, Municipal Tax Payments, Recycling of Electrical Appliances etc), a2) Business (e.g. Municipal Tax Payments etc.) b. Establishes online task management of the activities related to online services delivery (Public Employees). LGAF SHORT PRESENTATION: The diffusion of the Internet within an increasingly large part of the population and the effective exploitation of the available to enterprise Information Technologies is the cause of new modes to conduct e-government. Harnessing the potential of enterprise integration technologies, public organizations can integrate the processes they deploy to provide services to citizens and businesses, first, across organizational and geographical frontiers and second, by electronic communications end-to-end. In fact, a large number of e-government services requires from government agencies to exchange information and documents during the service delivery process. Such transactions can be organized in a fully automated way, similar to how e-business networks have established the electronic exchange of messages and the combination of processes between companies. The result should improve the speed and efficiency of government services, support interactivity, multi-channel provision, cross-border transport of â€œrich informationâ€ and documents, and help governments to redefine strategies and investments in the area of e-government. Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) have been emerging as the key integration approach in contemporary, complex, heterogeneous computing environments. SOA in e-government appears now as the right framework for developing a new generation of e-services (e-government 2.0). Essentially the issue is how to re-engineer legacy applications, and develop new ones â€œfrom the existingâ€, by using SOA, EAI (Enterprise Architecture Integration) and BPMS (Business Process Management Systems). The combined use of BPMS and SOA (in an e-government EAI context) can be applied primarily in developing a batch of new, flexible, â€œcompositeâ€ and user-friendly e-government applications (much like banks currently do with loan origination, claims management, case management etc.). LGAF Project implements such an approach to offer a single source, end-to-end, â€œBPMS over SOAâ€ solution for e-government â€œcompositeâ€ applications development at the Greek local administration level, by enabling process automation and service / content request and delivery over the Internet. It will allow citizens and SMEs to obtain online administrative documents, pay taxes and fines through the Internet, add and modify their public administration records, purchase permits and licenses etc.
