The use of digital technologies is now applicable to all areas of public sector administration. We need to ensure that new legislation takes into account and allows for the utilisation of those technologies. This applies to mandatory digital communication, re-use of data and the use of the common digital infrastructure in the public sector, to mention just a few examples. In 2012, the government will establish principles for the drafting of legislation that take into account the increasing use of digital means and technologies in the public sector.
