The e-Government Code (eGC)
Institution: Ministry for Innovation and Technologies
Implementation Date: Oct 08, 2005
Summary: ICT have always been considered key not only for the automation of public services and, in so doing, for the increase of efficiency and effectiveness of public procedures, but also for facilitating the simplification as well as the transparency of the relationship between public administration and citizens.


The effort to strengthen the use of ICT in public services has acquired, in Italy, juridical validity thanks to the e-Government Code (eGC), which came into force on 1st January 2006.


The eGC is part of an overall strategy that, in the words of the Prime Minister, “is designed to transform the Public Administration from a handicap to a strength for our competitiveness in the world economy''. Essentially, the E-Government Code aims to free Italians from numerous, out-of-date bureaucratic procedures.


The eGC represents a unique code, which, unifying all the several existing statements, along with defining new ones, will work as a “digital constitution” for all public operators in the field of ICT.
Impact: The following table summarises the savings to be gained from this system:
  • Project examined Savings per year in millions of euros

  • Certified e-mail 360
  • Reduction of certificates 400
  • Digital signatures in universities 20
  • Digital signatures in government-business relations 25
  • Optical document filing 697
  • Reduced bureaucratic burden for SMEs 938

TOTAL 2,640
