Three pillars of the integrated legislative information system

ICT have become essential in supporting the work of legislative bodies. As these technologies have matured and grown in sophistication, they have acquired the necessary capabilities and flexibility to assist the public institutions in the legislative procedure.

The e-Parliament, e-Cabinet and the legislative knowledge management system are the building blocks of the Nextsense Integrated Legislative Information System. Those solutions help the governments, parliaments and official journals to be more representative, transparent, accessible, accountable and effective through ICT.

e-PARLIAMENT

This solution covers the entire parliamentary legislation process, prepares and holds the sessions, providing high level of efficiency, cost-efficiency, mobility, transparency and responsibility in the process of preparation, implementation and the daily coordination of the decisions resulting from the legislation process of the Parliament.

Nextsense e-Parliament gives access to rich, contextual information to everyone involved in parliamentary processes: MPs, professionals, experts, media and citizens. Allow faster decision-making and lower bureaucracy through information systems that enable access to information to anyone, anywhere and on any device.

The system covers complete Legislative procedure, including: Parliamentary Desktop with automation of work of President of Assembly, Secretary General, MPs, Parliamentary groups; Committee work; Parliamentary sessions; MP questions. Also e-Parliament embraces Public web portal, Parliament Web TV and Key Performance Indicators. The next releases of e-Parliament will involve multi-touch capabilities for MPs.

e-cabinet

The e-Cabinet represents basis for transformation of the methods of operation of the Government as well as the way of thinking and behavior of the government officials and also raises the operations of the Government to a new and advanced level. At same time e-Cabinet provides better communication between the Ministries, exchange of documents, acts, opinions etc., which are of interest in the process of electronic meetings of the Government.

e-Cabinet facilitates governments with:

  • Workflow process for preparation, approval, submission, reception desk management and archiving of session materials
  • Preparation of the meeting agenda, access to all materials and presentation module
  • Publishing the Government Sessions agenda and decisions to public

These capabilities result in easier process management, increased performance and enhanced capacity of government processes. The system provides: reduced time necessary for preparation of materials for Government meetings; optimization and redefinition of the processes for preparation and approval of materials necessary for the meetings of the Government and in the Ministries; tracking of processes and measuring the performances of the civil servants who are participants in the process.

LEGISLATIVE KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

Legislative Knowledge Management is integrated content management system which includes preparation, publishing, archiving and search of legislation. Also, this solution covers the process of preparation of Official Journal printed issues, intranet and internet legislation database. This system establishes interoperability, communication and publishing of legislation between Official Journal, Parliament and Government.

Implementation of this solution leads towards:

  • Reduction of errors in legislation publishing process
  • Enforces standards in legislative documents
  • Reducing administrative costs and complexities in the legislative process
  • “de-facto” standard in XML representation of official legislation
