Access to numerous government entities through a single national page

In addition to the national portal, the Government has also developed an official website for the French civil service,, available to private citizens, businesses and professionals. All administrative information is presented clearly and simply in three sections: First, citizen’s rights and procedures. There are about 200 folders, 2,500 data sheets and answers to FAQs and several thousand links to useful resources, including forms, online procedures, reference texts, public websites, etc. Second, practical services to help with administrative procedures, such as online services, calculation modules, downloadable forms, standard letters, call and contact centres, and a message service; third, a civil service directory including 11,000 national services, 70,000 local civil services and accesses to the main portals of the States in the European Union, European institutions and international organisations. The official civil service website facilitates and simplifies access to administrative information by selecting the various resources available on the public network and organizing them to meet citizens’ needs. For each topic, collects all the relevant information and makes it instantly available.
