Action 89 in Italy flag Italy

Member States to make eGovernment services fully interoperable

Indicator Status Evidence
Does the Member State have a National Interoperability Framework? Yes -The legal framework Digital Administration Code (DAC) -The ICT interoperability framework Sistema Pubblico di Connettività e Coopera-zione (SPC) (Public System of Connetivity and Cooperation)
Have public administrations aligned their national interoperability frameworks with the European Interoperability Framework? Yes -NIFO Factsheet Italy. Firstly, a strong interoperability governance structure was found in the NIF, as demonstrated by the SPC commission. Secondly, the SPC closely aligns with the EIF in terms of conceptual models, by means of the Italian Enterprise Architecture and the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-driven infrastructure. Thirdly, although no list of principles is given explicitly by the SPC or DAC, most of the EIF principles are mentioned in the details of the legal text. Fourthly, the SPC describes several legally binding interoperability agreements, such as service agreements and cooperation agreements, but does not fully align to the EIF as public administrations are not encouraged to participate in standardisation work and to assess and select formalised specifications.
Does the NIF take into account the European dimension of public service delivery? Yes NIFO Factsheet, SPC executive summary and other documentation above
Is IPv6 supported? Yes See above documents

Other initiatives:

In order to widespread interoperability as a guiding principle in the Public Administration, a Master in interoperability has been established and regularly carried on by University of Rome “La Sapienza” and DigitPA (National Agency for the digitalization of Public Administration) Università di Urbino a Master on digital archiving and interoperability
