SN001 - eGovernment Strategy Switzerland

The Confederation, the cantons and the communes manage eGovernment in Switzerland together since 2008. 

Swiss eGovernment strategy 2016-2019

The Confederation, the cantons and the communes pursue a joint e-government strategy. By implementing the strategy, their aim is to achieve the following mission:

«eGovernment is a matter of course: transparent, cost-effective and seamless electronic government services for the general public, businesses and the administration.»

The 2007 eGovernment Strategy was revised and the new strategy was adopted by the Confederation, the cantons and the communes at the end of 2015.


Implementation of the strategy is decentralised but coordinated, under the supervision of a Steering Committee, a Planning Committee and a Programme Office, which is part of the FITSU. The organisational structure of these coordination bodies is set out in the Framework Agreement on eGovernment Cooperation of the Confederation and the cantons.


All relevant information pertaining to the eGovernment Strategy Switzerland can be found on the Programme Office's website:
