Government's timetable for digital official platform

Vienna (APA) – Finance Minister Margarete Schramböck (ÖVP) clarified the timetable for the digital official platform "oesterreich.gv.at" on Wednesday. At the end of the year, it will be possible to have a driving license on the mobile phone. As of July, lost documents can also be made via the platform via the mobile phone's signature, Schramböck said in the press feet after the Council of Ministers.

By the end of the year, the ten most frequent official channels were offered online, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) said. The new thing is that the registration and deregistration of the main home can be regulated via the platform. From July this should also be possible for the secondary residence. The "digital baby point", which brought important official channels around the baby's birth, can now also be used. In time for the EU election, the application for an election card on the platform was possible. This would have made 800 voters in the first 12 hours, Schramböck was satisfied.

As of July, lost documents can be reported as lost and search new. At year-end, there will be a driving license and registration certificate on the platform. The insight into the pension account must also be possible via this platform from the turn of the year. The identity card is expected to arrive on the platform mid-2020.

"This is the beginning and not the terminal, we will be able to receive many more things here," Schramböck was convinced. Since the launch of the platform yesterday, there are already 12,000 registered users on oesterreich.gv.at, 3,000 of them via the App.

Also in the Council of Ministers was the new federal agency for care and support services (BBU), for which the bill was already sent on Friday in review. "I am convinced that asylum is a great task," stresses the Interior Minister Herbert Kickl (FPÖ). He also confirmed that the nationalization of the asylum system would lead to cost savings of tens of millions.

In concrete expectations, he expects a saving of ten million euros per year in connection with federal sales. In legal advice, the Interior Minister expects savings of between EUR 2 and 3 million per year. The return guidance should be more expensive. Here he expects increased advice and the number of voluntary returns, the extra costs Kickl estimated at about one million euros per year.
