The Information System of the Latvian Register of Commercial Pledges
No. 02, 1999
The Latvian Register of Commercial Pledges was set up relatively quickly, and it can be considered successful in terms of its implementation.

The Latvian State Revenue Service and the Y2K Challenge
No. 02, 1999
The Latvian State Revenue Service is implementing new systems for customs and tax administration. The aim is to provide customers with ongoing and proper services. One major challenge in this process is the "Millennium Bug", and the SRS has elaborated a special Y2K project to prepare its critical systems for uninterrupted operations today and in every single day of the next century.
When Late Is Too Late: Year 2000 Risks in Latvia
No. 02, 1999
In October 1998 the Latvian Cabinet of Ministers ordered the Ministry of Transport to organize and manage a government commission dealing with the Year 2000 problem. The commission was set up on January 5 of this year, and practical aspects of task planning have been delegated to the Department of Informatics of the Ministry of Transport. This paper will present the results of survey that has been conducted with respect to the overall preparedness of Latvia to avoid the risks that are associated with Y2K.
Bids for Tenders as a Tool for Developing Information Technologies: The Experience of Latvian Government Institutions and Private Structures
No. 03, 1999
The Latvian State Revenue Service organizes approximately 10 IT-related bids for tenders each year. In Latvia's IT sector, these bids are very important, because the SRS organizes very significant projects. It employs 4,500 people and has 34 territorial divisions. The Latvian Customs Service, too, operates throughout the country. The work is largely based on computer technologies used in an on-line regime.
Lithuania's Competitive Advantage
No. 03, 1999
Getting the future is more a function of resourcefulness than of resources. Resourcefulness stems not from an elegantly structured strategic architecture, but from a deeply felt sense of purpose, a broadly shared dream, a truly seductive view of tomorrow's opportunities (Competing for the Future, 1994).
The Joint Stock Company Latvijas Gze on the Way to Using Modern Information Technologies
No. 03, 1999
Latvijas Gze (LG) is the only company in Latvia which supplies natural and liquid gas to industrial and residential consumers. The company employs some 3,000 people, and it is one of the companies that make up Latvia's energy complex, thus having a significant effect on the life of the entire country. For that reason, it is logical to look at the IT situation at the company, as well as the way in which it is dealing with the Year 2000 problem.
Sharing Public Sector Information in Latvia in the Context of European Policy
No. 04, 1999
Public sector information is a fundamental component of the information services market in any country. The EU has envisaged the general availability of this kind of information as a necessary precondition for bringing administration closer to citizens and businesses. The first steps aimed at increasing the efficiency of public information services have now been taken in Latvia, too.
The IT Society, Public Administration and the Efficient Management of Infrastructure
No. 04, 1999
There is both a great need and a vast potential for improvements in the area of the public management of infrastructure. If based on long-term strategies and handled properly, improvements yield strongly positive results, not only as regards life quality and the health status of populations, but also as regards the efficiency of higher management and lower overall management costs. Because excessive closeness tends to make one blind, dare to involve reliable outside experts to identify specific problem areas in your field, to suggest improvements and to implement solutions!
Problems in Implementing Information Technologies in Lithuania
No. 04, 1999
Not only specialists, but also the government authorities and politicians of Lithuania are realizing that information technologies are vitally important for all modern states.
