The coronavirus pandemic is accelerating digital transformation in many areas. What was long seen as a vision for the future has quickly turned out to be an everyday necessity. At the same time, however, it became clear that there is a need to catch up in the digitalisation of public administration.
These experiences from the pandemic and the opportunities that the resulting pressure for change brings with it must be used to quickly exploit the great potentials of digitalisation for more efficient administrative action. The aim is to provide citizens and business entities with user-friendly digital services that are free of barriers and media interruption. Only then can Germany as a business location remain internationally competitive and be more resilient in future crisis situations.
In addition to improved service for citizens and business entities, bureaucratic costs will be reduced and considerable time and costs saved. However, in order to fully utilise the possibilities of a modern digital administration, the necessary processes must be rethought across the boundaries of individual authorities and legal entities. Digitalisation is thus becoming the motor for further reforms of structures and processes.
The implementation of the Online Access Act (OZG) is just one example of this holistic approach in administration. With consistent implementation, including mandatory digitalisation in the back office, what constitutes a modern digitalised administration can be achieved: the avoidance of internal media interruptions with consistent electronic external communication with the authority.
