Online Access Act (OZG)

With the Online Access Act, the federal, state and local governments are obliged to make their administrative services digitally accessible via administrative portals. Unnecessary visits to the authorities and thick mailings are to be avoided. However, digitalisation also brings with it dangers from the internet. IT security is therefore at the top of the agenda.


E-Government Act (EGovG)

The E-Government Act obliges administrations to create electronic access for citizens. This can simplify administrative acts. ELSTER for communication with tax offices is one example. Furthermore, the law regulates the provision of electronic official gazettes, proofs and payment options.

From the field "Secure guest accesses"

The Office for Information Technology of the Cantonal Administration of Uri (Switzerland) has implemented a flexible solution for public WLAN as a project. Read how the project was implemented in our case study.



According to the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the Online Access Act (OZG) obliges the federal government, the Länder and local authorities to offer their administrative services digitally via administrative portals. The digital services are to be active alongside the classic administrative services (e.g. paper documents) by the end of 2022.


"Digital sovereignty" stands for the possibilities and abilities of institutions to exercise their role securely in the digital world. It must be easy to collect, process and store data at any time. This also includes the protection of the IT infrastructure and (customer) data at the top.


Electronic government encompasses all measures that enable communication and action electronically between public administrations and citizens. This includes, for example, e-mails and digital documents. The measures are intended to simplify and accelerate administrative processes.


  • ID card with chip for electronic identification with authorities and business matters on the Internet.
  • ELSTER to submit electronic tax returns to tax offices.
  • (Application) documents can be uploaded digitally for verification.
  • uvm.
