All this required the introduction of a single approach and standards in the formulation, management and integration of state information resources and systems and speeding up the transition to digital government. President Ilham Aliyev signed a decree on March 14, 2018, on "Measures for development of e-government and transformation to digital government" for the rapid implementation of these works. In order to implement state policy and regulation in the field of e-government with this Decree, a legal entity was created under the subordination of the State Agency for Citizens Service and Social Innovations under the "Electronic Government Development Center".
