The Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations has sent the Digital Government Act to the Lower Chamber of Parliament. The government is developing an ambitious broad agenda for the further digitization of public administration at various levels. The bill lays the foundation for a common digital infrastructure of the government. The first package includes: 

the power to impose certain standards for government electronic traffic, preferably open standards; 
setting rules on information security, all governments must properly secure their systems;
the responsibility for the management of the facilities and services within the generic digital government infrastructure (GDI); and 
digital access to public services for citizens (natural persons) and companies (legal entities and businesses).

The law sets down frameworks: the subjects still need to be explored in other laws and decisions. The government earlier presented a Digitisation Strategy, with 24 ambitions.
