Fundamental Direction provides you with practical help with Austrian public authorities, agencies and institutions.

Based on life situations, e.g. Birth [Geburt], provides neutral information concerning official channels (e.g. fees, deadlines, required documents) on an inter-administrative level and links to (online) forms. It is also possible to process a great number of administrative procedures electronically via Online Administrative Channels [Online-Amtswege].

By establishing, a general Austrian e-government platform was created.
