The Legal Regime of State and Municipal Information Systems

Introduction. State and municipal information systems are the most important tools for building the platform of e-government and of the digital economy. Systemic study and improvement of their legal support is possible through the category of “legal regime”.

Theoretical analysis. Administrative and object legal regimes are singled out. The legal regime of information systems refers to the objective ones. The legal regime of the state (municipal) information system is a set of interrelated legal means to achieve the desired social effect of using the state (municipal) information system.

Empirical analysis. Structurally legal regime is a system of interrelated and interacting elements, among which normative and non-normative elements can be singled out. The purpose of establishing a legal regime, the principles of the institution of state and municipal information systems are of particular importance among non-normative elements. The block of normative elements is formed, first of all, by the norms determining the legal status of participants in information relations related to the creation and use of state and municipal information systems.

Results. There are the following mandatory regulatory elements of the legal regime of the state (municipal) information system: the purpose of creating and designating an information system; requirements for the composition and content of the information resource; requirements for technical, software, linguistic support of the information system; requirements for the processes of creating an information system (including commissioning, modernization, decommissioning); the legal status of information providers; the legal status of users of information; legal status of the information system operator.
