Yesterday evening in Berlin: the 20th award ceremony of the renowned eGovernment competition. On stage: twice the digital ship register and team members from the Hamburg Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BJV), mgm and Dataport. There was a 2nd and a 3rd place.
A study in which mgm was involved explores the question: How can merchants on marketplaces provide mandatory proof of taxes using blockchain technology? One of the results was a prototype based on SSI. A podcast with Ansgar Knipschild - and lots of detailed information.
Companies have an average of around 200 contacts with the authorities per year. In order to make paper forms, faxes, e-mails and letter post a thing of the past, fully digital administrative services are needed. The basis for this is to be the uniform ELSTER-based company account. The basic components of the joint project were presented to the public at the beginning of June 2021.
To support digitisation projects, the Bavarian State Ministry for Digital Affairs (StMD) invited tenders for a framework contract for various IT services. mgm was now awarded the contract as general contractor together with KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft and Höhn Consulting as one of seven companies.
The magazine eGovernment Computing (Vogel IT-Medien) has been presenting the "eGovernment Computing Readers Choice Award" for five years. For the sixth edition, the monthly magazine has now nominated mgm for the award in the "Consultant" category for the first time.
What is the potential of using blockchain technology in tax administration? The Bavarian State Tax Office has explored this question in a research project together with the Fraunhofer FIT Business Informatics Project Group, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg and mgm. The results are promising - especially with the use of a Self-Sovereign Identity system (SSI).
