Is the National eGovernment strategy in place? Yes The Common Strategy for eGovernment in Bulgaria 2011-2015 was updated to Strategy for eGovernment in Bulgaria 2014-2020, according to the new European program period. The roadmap for implementation of the Strategy was also updated accordingly. Bulgaria's recent eGovernment strategy is broadly based on two pillars, the 'Concept of eGovernment in Bulgaria 2010-2015' and the 'Common Strategy for eGovernment in Bulgaria 2011-2015'. The Concept of eGovernment in Bulgaria 2010-2015 The 'Concept of eGovernment' represents the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications' vision for eGovernment in 2015 and the principles by which this is to be achieved. The document has no independent legal significance, but nevertheless serves as a basis for developing a national strategy and a roadmap for eGovernment in Bulgaria until 2015. According to the document, the Government is to apply the principles of good management, using modern ICT in order to: provide comprehensive and quality administrative services tailored to user's needs; establish open and transparent governance through the potential of new technologies; deliver effective, efficient and sustainable management; provide citizens and businesses quality administrative services electronically anytime, anyplace and through alternative access channels; ensure transparency and accountability, engaging citizens and structures of civil society in governance processes; achieve maximum impact and sustainability of the optimisation costs and work processes; ensure information security management and achieve interoperability at a national and European level. Common strategy for eGovernment in Bulgaria 2011-2015 This 'Common Strategy for eGovernment in Bulgaria 2011-2015', which was adopted by the Council of Ministers on 29 December 2010, lays the foundation upon which sectoral policies, strategies, objectives and activities of ministries and agencies are being deployed. The main aim of the strategy is for the Government to accelerate the creation and development of eGovernance in order to provide accessible and better quality services to both citizens and businesses, to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the administration, to enhance transparency and accountability, to reduce corruption and to create new opportunities for participation for the civil society. The strategy sets out that the Government will establish and develop electronic management in the country until 2015 based on the following principles: placing the consumer at the centre of the Administrative Service, by taking all possible measures to promote convenience in the use of eServices; promoting effectiveness and efficiency of services by enhancing the returns of invested means; creating an environment of administrative accountability and transparency in providing eServices and decision-making solutions; enhancing consumer confidence in matters of eSecurity and improving protection of their rights in the e-space. Currently is published a proposal for upgrade and update of the National eGovernment strategy for the period until 2020.
