The Integrated Public Service Governance viewpoint is a viewpoint of the European Interoperability Reference Architecture which supports the Integrated public service governance layer of the European Interoperability Framework. It promotes reusability as a driver for interoperability, recognising that the (European) Public service should reuse information and services that already exist and may be available from various sources inside or beyond the organisational boundaries of Public Administration. Information and services should be retrievable and be made available in interoperable formats. Security and privacy requirements should be considered and measures for the provision of each public service according to risk management plans should be identified. Trust services should be used according to the Regulation on eID and Trust Services as mechanisms that ensure secure and protected data exchange in public services.

The Integrated Public Service Governance viewpoint

A [ Public service consumer ] consumes a [Public Service] which is provided by a [ Public service provider ] via a [ Service Delivery Model ]. This [Public Service] can use other [Public Services], coordinated via either [ Orchestration Service ]. These services use Catalogues ([ Public Service Catalogue ], [ Legislation Catalogue], [ Data Set Catalogue ] or [ Service Registry Component]) to assess sharing and reuse readiness and rely on Internal Information Sources and Services or External Information Sources and Services which contain [Base Registries] and [Open Data] as information sources, provided via by [ Interoperable (European) Solution Service ]. [Security and Privacy] principles apply to the entire conceptual model.
