Electronic administration is an essential part of the Digital transformation. Digital Administration has revolutionized our interaction with the government or Public Administration. Introducing this system simplifies and streamlines communication between citizens, businesses, and governmental authorities. Andorra, a small European country located in the Pyrenees mountains, is among the countries more advanced in innovation related to E-Administration.
This blog post aims to explore the latest improvements in E-Administration in Andorra. The country has been working on several initiatives to provide efficient, transparent, and accessible public services. The late initiative is the approval of a Regulation to make possible for individuals, the identification throught video-system (artificial intelligence).So, let's get started.
1. Digital IDs and Signature Certificates
Andorra has recently launched a digital ID initiative, providing unique identification to its citizens through a Digital Certificate. It is an essential component of the country's E-Administration system, replacing traditional identification methods. The Andorran government has also introduced a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to enable digital signatures with high reliability and legality.
2. Online Services
Andorra has introduced several online platforms that offer various government services like Tax administration, Social Security, Legal services, etc. Citizens can access these services from anywhere at any time using their digital identification. Online registration for tax, social security, or medical insurance is now quick and easy, reducing the need for paper documentation. Besides, Andorra's government has launched an online administrative procedure management system, providing online access to procedures, rules, and regulations of all authorities.
Andorra is aware of the increasing risks of cyber-attacks and is taking necessary measures to prevent them. In 2020, the Andorran government launched the cybersecurity portal to assist citizens and businesses in identifying and preventing cyber threats. The country provides a high level of training to its employees to build awareness about cybersecurity. The Andorran government is also continuously improving its IT infrastructure to guarantee the security of the digital system.
4. Open Data
Andorra's open data initiative aims to promote transparency and access to public data. The country has launched a national portal to make this data available to the public concerning several domains: government, economy, environment, society, healthcare etc. The data can be accessed and analyzed by individuals, researchers, government officials, and the private sector to make informed decisions. The objective of this initiative is to promote transparency in the government's activity and enhance its effectiveness.
5. Mobile Electronic Administration
Smartphones have become an essential part of our daily lives, and Andorra has recognized this trend. The Andorran government has introduced mobile applications for their E-Administration system, providing quick and easy access to governmental services. For example, the Salut App allows users to make appointments online for healthcare services; review prescriptions and have direct access to their healthcare history. Other mobile applications include ATIR, which allows users to view traffic information and reported incidents in real-time on the roads in Andorra.
E-Administration is revolutionizing how citizens interact with the government & Public Administrations; Andorra has taken the initiative to introduce several new trends to provide efficient, transparent, and accessible public services and, on the other hand, providing sufficient security avoiding frauds or risks. By launching digital identification, online services, cybersecurity, open data, and mobile E-Administration, Andorra facilitates the administration's daily activities while engaging with its citizens. With these improvements, Andorra looks forward to reducing bureaucracy and providing quality public services to its society. Overall, Andorra's E-Administration system is a remarkable example that other countries can learn from to enhance their public administration systems.
One of the most tedious processes was the necessity of a physical identification before being granted with the digital certificate. It seems that the trend is to substitute this identification by video-systems based on artificial intelligence. Although the new Andorra Regulation limits this process to handicapped people or non-residents, our opinion is that this method will be the future of E-Administration not only in Andorra, but wordwide. If banks are accepting this method as secure is because it gives even more security.
