Short Description

The e-Government law of 2007 created the National Interoperability Framework (NIF) together with the National Security Framework.

These frameworks are the result of a collective effort of all public administrations aiming to be aligned with the European scenario and to contribute to build up and improve interoperability. In particularly, the NIF addresses requirements in relation to:

  • Technical interoperability: the NIF specifies conditions about the selection and use of standards.
  • Common infrastructures and services: contributes to facilitate multilateral interactions.
  • Reuse of software: it contributes to a better interoperability;
  • Interoperability Agreements.

Within the list of Interoperability Agreements, there is the National Catalogue of Standards. The National Catalogue is composed by 86 standards. Not for all standards are a formal assessment document, firstly because some of them are self-explanatory. Secondly, because the entire process requires too many resources.

The Catalogue seeks to make E-Government services available to citizens so that they and Public Administration agencies can choose the technology to use, and to adapt to the development of communication systems and techniques.

In addition, the Catalogue is useful for potential users like policy makers, IT managers and procurement officials.
