It was in that the development of eGovernment turned into a standalone policy with the launch of both a strategic plan and an action plan commonly referred to as the ADELE programme. The latter was aiming to simplify and make the public services accessible by electronic means to all users, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as to cut the costs generated by the operation of the public administration.
A pre-condition for this and a related objective listed in the programme was to generate trust in new ways of delivering services. The year marked a turning point for eGovernment with the adoption of a government ordinance regulating and granting legal value to all aspects of the electronic exchanges of data, information, and documents taking place within the public administration, as well as between the public bodies and the citizens or businesses.
Considered as the country's eGovernment Act, the ordinance also set the year of the advent of eGovernment to Since then, the further implementation of eGovernment has been a shared priority of both Digital France the plan for the development of the digital economy by and the General Review of Public Policies, a reform process which was launched in June to keep the public spending in check while refining public services in a way to centre them even more on their users' needs.

At sub-national level, the regions, departmentsand municipalities steer their own eGovernment initiatives, but they do so within the limits of their jurisdiction and in conformity with the national eGovernment policy.
Based upon the political structure in the country eGovernment efforts follow a threefold dimension, thus focusing on federal, state, and local level. Initial efforts began already in with the MEDIA Komm project for the development of local eGovernment solutions in selected regions.
