Public Sector ICT
The Ministry of Finance steers public sector information management, structural development, and joint services and service provision. It also steers the general criteria for information security, prepares information and administrative policies and develops digital administration. Each ministry steers the development of information management and related projects in its own administrative branch.
The Public Sector ICT Department provides preconditions for the digitalisation of the public sector and sets a strong example. This is done by digitalising public sector services, promoting interoperability across administration and enabling the security of authorities’ activities.
Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union begins on 1 July and ends on 31 December 2019. Please see the official website for more details (in various languages) eu2019.fi.
