As one of the measures for service consolidation from the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community, the "E-Akte Bund“ took part in the 19th eGovernment competition in the category "Best digitization project at federal, state and local level in 2020" and took third place.

Dr. Markus Richter, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of the the Interior, Building and Community and Federal Government Commissioner for Information Technology: "The nationwide introduction of e-files in public authorities is a central pillar in the digitization of administration. It will enable purely electronic management of file processes in the future. This saves a lot of paper and is the core of a modern, future-proof administration."

Under the patronage of the Federal Minister for Special Tasks, Prof. Dr. Helge Braun, the competition takes place annually in seven categories and honors projects and authorities in the field of eGovernment. In the category "Best digitization project at federal, state and local level 2020", prizes are awarded to projects at federal, state and local level that make effective use of the potential of new digital developments and offer citizens, companies and the administration significant added value.
