”The German WiBe (German Federal Ministry of the Interior, 2004) and the French MAREVA (ADAE, 2005) measurement frameworks (see Exhibit 7 and Exhibit 8) … seek to map both monetisable and non-monetisable efficiency gains, not only for public administrations but also for their constituencies. In particular, these types of impact are mapped by the ’External benefits for the user‘ and ’Necessity of the project‘ categories of the MAREVA framework, whilst the same dimension is investigated by the ’External effects‘ and the ’Urgency‘ dimensions of WiBe.

In addition to mapping external impact through the ’Urgency‘ dimension, the German ’WiBe‘ methodology also takes into account linkage to national/regional eGovernment policies, thus binding the execution of eGovernment projects to a parallel policy and minimizing the risk of misaligned/ineffective investments.

Also in the case of Germany, the parallel measurement of monetary and non-monetary aspects is mirrored in the set-up of service infrastructures, integrated information systems and services designed to achieve both efficiency and effectiveness gains. Given the size and the population of the country, large-scale projects are likely to produce extremely high benefits, especially when conceived and designed in a pan-European service perspective.”
