Irish Revenue On Line Service Ranks Among Top In Europe

06 December 2001


Ireland's Revenue On-Line Service (ROS) has received an eGovernment Label award from the European Commission in recognition that it operates amongst the 'best practices' of eGoverment in Europe. The aim of the award is to demonstrate the best current practices and to encourage their development as an important component of the eEurope Action Plan approved by the EU member states in June 2000.

The award was presented to Margaret Whelan, ROS Strategy Manager, at an eGovernment conference in Brussels jointly organised by the European Commission and the Belgian Presidency last week entitled 'From Policy to Practice.'

Commenting on the achievement, the Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners, Mr. Dermot Quigley, said that he was delighted with the success. He stated: 'ROS has firmly positioned itself at the forefront of the Government's commitment to developing user friendly, interactive on-line services for citizens. ROS effectively enables 24 hour access to Revenue, seven days a week. I am extremely gratified that the quality of the service that we have achieved to date ranks us amongst the best practices in Europe, indeed I believe in the world.'

A total of 281 proposals from the EU member states, the EFTA countries and the accession candidate countries competed for the prize for excellence out of which just 60 on-line administration services were selected by a team of independent experts.
