e-Gov Technical Committee
Categorised under: XML
Robin Cover summarises the news that OASIS has created an e-Gov Technical Committee, “providing an international forum for governments to voice their needs and requirements with respect to XML-based standards”. Its mandate is as follows:
Bringing together government representatives from around the world, the OASIS e-Gov Technical Committee will support the modernization of government and assist in the electronic delivery of services to citizens and businesses through the coordination and adoption of XML standards. The OASIS e-Gov Technical Committee will identify and organize plans for the development of new standards. Their recommendations and requirements will be formally submitted to appropriate working groups within OASIS. New technical committees may be formed for needs that are not currently being addressed. Resources created through the TC will serve as a clearinghouse of information related to applicable specs/standards as well as activities and projects being conducted by Governments in the adoption of XML-based systems and standards.
