The new European Interoperability Framework (EIF) is a key instrument for establishing interoperable digital public services at all levels of public administration. Implementing the EIF's principles and ensuring holistic interoperability and integrated public service governance can be a very complex issue. Especially on the local government level, the challenge comes from the autonomous nature and differences between local communities. In Hungary’s experience this can be most easily tackled by the establishment of a central solution – for which ensuring the compliance with the national e-Government policy criteria aligned to the EIF can be ensured effectively.
