The subject of the collection includes an overview of the current state, as well as practices of digital transformation of public administration in the world in 5 key areas:

  • artificial intelligence
  • cybersecurity
  • competencies and capacity building of government employees.

The presented 35 SAI cases show not only the existing approaches, but also the most common problems and obstacles faced by public authorities in the process of digital transformation, as well as the experience in preparing recommendations to address the identified problems.
