The German IT Planning Council
Central body for the digitalisation of the administrative system
Joining forces to drive the digitalisation of Germany’s public administration: The IT Planning Council is a central political body that coordinates and supports collaboration between the federal and state governments on matters regarding information technology and the digitalisation of administrative services. It ensures that the work of the federal and state governments is closely coordinated, for example based on shared goals and areas of activity, promotes uniform IT standards and oversees the implementation of digitalisation projects. The goal is to establish an IT infrastructure that is consistent across Germany’s administrative systems and benefits citizens and companies in equal measure.
