EGON Shared Services in the Czech Republic

EGON is a marketing interpretation of eGovernment in the Czech Republic. EGON does not bend legislation so it fits information technology. EGON respects long-term existing administrative processes in public administration. EGON consists of components mapped as parts of human body:

  • Czech POINT (fingers)
  • Databox system (blood)
  • Base Registry (brain)
  • KIVS (veins)
  • Legislation changes (heart)

EGON is implemented as orchestrated set of shared services on central, regional and local levels.

eGovernment – part of Smart Administration Governmental Strategy

Smart Administration Strategy should improve the quality of service provided by government agencies to their clients, e. g. to the citizens, companies, also the other governmental agencies. Smart Administration is in an intersection of six factors: citizens, legislation, organization, clerks, finance and information technology.

eGovernmet is only one sixth of Smart Administration, but equally important as the other five ones. Smart Administartion is governed by Czech Government supported by RV KIS – Interministerial Co-ordinating Body based within the Office of the Czech Government.

Base Regisry

Base Registry concept is based on the need of secure data interchange between thousand of information systems of public administration. Basic register contains reference data about inhabitants, companies, building. Information systems of public administration shall use these reference data, when carrying the data of inhabitants, etc.

Reference data are written by editing information systems, other systems reading them only. Basic register defines not only value of reference data, but unique editing entity of this data too.

  • BR of Inhabitants – holds the data of inhabitants
  • BR of Persons – holds the data of companies and governmental agencies
  • BR of Territorial identification, addresses and real estates – holds the data of buildings
  • BR of Rights and responsibilities – holds the data about administrative decisions

Converter – converts the identifiers of subjects.

Information system of BR – interconnects BRs and other systems.
