eEnviPer is an EU-funded project aiming to provide an integrated web-based platform for the application, administration and consultation of environmental permits, thereby making  the  environmental  permitting  process  more  transparent,  more  accessible  and more efficient. The platform will be available in early 2014 after intensive field tests in five European countries (Croatia, Greece, Italy, Serbia and Turkey).

eEnviPer uses innovative technical approaches such as public sector cloud services and service-oriented architecture(SOA) to  build  open,  flexible  and  collaborative  e-government services while at the same time lowering information and communication technology (ICT)costs. The use of an internet-enabled platform such as eEnviPer can be  a  first  step  for  municipalities  and  permitting  authorities  to  make  their  permitting processes  more cost  effective, transparent  and  user-friendly. The  system  offers  the possibility  for  public  administrations  to  easily  deploy both new  services  and  existing procedures  as  shared  services. The  platform  can  also  access  locally  available  data sources such   as geospatial   information through   industry-standard   XML-based interfaces.

This  paper examines the  cloud  computing  aspects  of  the  eEnviPer  platform in  detail. The  first  section introduces cloud  computing,  cloud  based  services and  deployment models.  The  second  section  analyses  the transition  and  the  benefits  of government services into cloud implementation. Finally, the last section focuses on features of the eEnviPer platform as a cloud based service.
