Harmonizing decentralized development of ICT solutions with centralized strategies, e.g., meant to favor reuse and optimization of resources, is a complex technical and organizational challenge. The problem, shared by virtually all the governments, is becoming a priority also for countries, such as Mozambique, that have started their ICT policy relatively recently and for which it is now evident that — if no particular attention is devoted to the interoperability of the solutions being developed — the result will rapidly become a patchwork of solutions incompatible with each other. The focus of the paper is on formulation of eGIF4M: eGovernment Interoperability Framework for Mozambique. The framework is based on a holistic approach. It builds on top of the existing experiences in eGIFs all over the world and it addresses some speciﬁc needs and peculiarities of developing countries, like Mozambique. The result is a comprehensive framework based on: (i) a reference architecture along with technical standards, (ii) a standardization life cycle, (iii) a maturity model, and (iv) some key actions meant to make the initiative sustainable in the longer term.
