In this paper we discuss the eGovernment strategies and the eGovernance policies of the Federal Government, of the Cantons and of the largest cities in Switzerland. While some of the cantons have already developed strategic documents that serve as a basis for the implementation of eGovernment, others are currently defining their policies and some do not have their own approach as they follow the recommendations of the Swiss federal government. This paper compares the existing strategies and policies in order to try to identify the overall directions of the Swiss ePolicies.
