|Do you have a National Interoperability Framework?||Yes||Austria is applying a document describing the Austrian approach for eGovernment interoperability – see reference. Currently this document is not explicitly called “National Interoperability Framework (NIF)” but contains all the elements necessary and typically found in a NIF. A NIF aligned to the EIF is currently being drafted and is expected to be published before the end of 2012. See: http://reference.e-government.gv.at/uploads/media/20081120_Austrian_minds_about_Interoperability_Reichstaedter.pdf|
|Have public administrations aligned their national interoperability frameworks with the European Interoperability Framework?||Yes||The collaborative working group ‘Infrastructure-Interoperability’ within the BLSG (Federal, regional, cities and communities administrations) is supporting the overall goal of the EIF and also the drafted AIF issues. http://reference.e-government.gv.at/INFRASTRUKTUR-INTEROPERABILI.1916.0.html|
|Does your National Interoperability Framework take into account the European dimension of public service delivery?||Yes||Austria fully aligns with seven of the twelve EIF principles. These seven principles are: User-centricity, Inclusion and accessibility, Security and privacy, Transparency, Reusability, Technological neutrality and adaptability, and Effectiveness and efficiency. The remaining principles currently are only partially aligned with the EIF. Evidence. https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/sites/default/files/NIFO%20-%20Factsheet%20Austria.pdf|
