While legislators and support staff heavily use digital libraries and mobile devices, the legislative process itself is largely paper based around the world.
Goals and Objectives
The goal is to provide a digital layer to current legislative processes to reduce paperwork, improve sustainability, increase transparency, and speed information transmission.
Digital content such as legislative dockets, laws, legal policies and procedures, analytics and performance metrics of constituents’ information, collaborative tools, social media, networking and device and network security, and digital document protection
Use Case Summary
Digital legislating adds a digital layer to the legislative process by supplementing paper-based communications and workflow with video-based meetings, digital legislative dockets, meeting records, digitized clerk functions, council notes, policies and operating procedures, online current news and information systems, and a dashboard view or key performance metrics of constituent preferences. This bolsters legislative transparency and accessibility to the community.
