The New Zealand Government – The New Zealand Government is developing a user centric framework to better utilize the Internet to meet strategic eGovernment transformation goals. Led by the State Services Commission, the project has a working title of GOAAMS (Government Online Attribute Assertion Meta System) and is being developed to enable every citizen and participating organization to use the authoritative data held about them online and in real-time, rather than having to repeatedly submit the same information across government systems. GOAAMS is being developed with input from a wide range of government agencies and international experts.
- Deployment – The application is being developed primarily for people and organizations that want to interact with all levels of government in New Zealand, irrespective of their global location. Inclusion of the private sector on both the provider and consumer sides is currently being examined.
- Highlights of User Benefits – GOAAMS offers citizens the convenience of being able to request and control the sending of authoritative information as well as quicker and more consistent government services and entitlement decisions within a secure and privacy-respecting framework.
- Highlights of Business Benefits – Participating organizations can access authoritative information in real-time and directly from the source. This leads to reduced compliance costs for businesses, lower operational costs and reduces risks by avoiding paper documents as a secondary source of information.
- Interoperable Federation Technologies – The proposed GOAAMS framework requires unprecedented levels of product interoperability to be economical and easy to deploy. The project will use SAML (v2 at present) and Liberty Web Services (ID-WSF).
