e-GIF (electronic-Government Interoperability Framework)

Note: This information is taken from the TALL Desk Study


The Cabinet Office of the UK Government


e-Gif is the interoperability framework for the whole of the public sector in the UK. It is not specific to education or e-learning.  JISC is working together with the Department for Education and Skills to extend these standards


The government has a similar challenge to HEIs and FEIs, but on a larger scale. It has to deal with complex sets of data relating to individuals held across a range of departments and systems. It is significant that both the ELF and the government are using web services in an attempt to solve this kind of problem. The principle behind the e-Gif project is of interest to those who wish to build a framework MLE; however, unless your institution has a need to exchange data with a government department then the specifics of e-Gif will not inform the construction of an ELF system. Over time the ELF and e-Gif projects should develop a larger overlap.
