CEF Building Blocks Presented at the German Federal Office of Administration
Marking 9 May, Europe Day 2018, the European Commission presented the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Building Blocks at the German Federal Office of Administration (Bundesverwaltungsamt, BVA) in Cologne.
The BVA has a history of close cooperation with the European Commission, and Member States' authorities. As part of the “Forum international” series, representatives from the European Commission were invited to present on ‘25 Years of the EU Single Market’ and ‘The CEF Building Blocks: Building a Digital Single Market’, followed by a Q&A with participants.
Since 1960, the Federal Office of Administration has evolved from an authority mainly handling administrative tasks into a reliable services agency for the Federal Ministry of the Interior and the entire federal administration. The BVA's expertise in public administration has been enhanced by services with a national and international scope.

To build a Digital Single Market, the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme funds a set of generic and reusable Digital Service Infrastructures (DSI), known as Building Blocks. The CEF Building Blocks offer basic capabilities that can be reused in any European project to facilitate the delivery of digital public services across borders and sectors. Currently, there are five building blocks: eDelivery, eInvoicing, eID, eSignature and eTranslation, with future building blocks soon to be released.
The basis for the CEF building blocks are interoperability agreements between European Union member states. The aim of the building blocks is thus to ensure interoperability between IT systems so that citizens, businesses and administrations can benefit from seamless digital public services wherever they may be in Europe.
All the information needed to see how the CEF Building Blocks can benefit your organisation or project are available on the CEF Digital 2018 website.
