Towards solving the basic records puzzle for e-government

Pieter Wisse
University of Amsterdam, Netherlands


Abstract
For several decades, the government of the Netherlands is trying to implement so-called basic records (Dutch: basisregistraties). The idea is that original information on key objects in society is registered only once. With better guarantees for quality, such common, even standard information should subsequently be available for reuse throughout the public sector. Success has so far been elusive, though. This paper investigates assumptions. Especially what basic is taken to mean, often implicitly, is shown as a misconception under conditions of networked interactions with characteristic variety. Singular meaning is clearly insufficient, even harmful, for supporting variety. For semantic interoperability, it should be recognized that differences are really basic. Otherwise, failures continue to accumulate.
