A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
Importance of legal information service Legal information, which is intimately related to the everyday lives of citizens and undertakings of administrative organizations, provides comprehensive data on various aspects such as the national legal system, state organization, ideology, current circumstances, and culture. Also, it forms the very basis of state order and development. Thus, it is important that ordinary citizens can easily access and use the legal information they are looking for as the legal system deeply affects citizens’ everyday lives and national policy under rule of law. Paper-based legal information: Constraints of Time and Space Traditionally, legal information of the Republic of Korea was published as paper gazettes and statute books, and made available to the public after administrative agencies and public facilities purchase them. Therefore, ordinary citizens had to visit public offices or libraries in order to find relevant legal information, and significant legal information provided restrictively only for legal experts’ consumer such as lawyer, officials. In addition, as frequent policy decisions and statute revisions took place in many areas due to rapid economic growth and democratization, legal information has continuously expanded to a total of 4,300 cases of statutes and 14,000 cases of administrative rule. As a result, citizens had to spend unnecessary time and effort going through the vast volumes of statute books to find simple legal information. Moreover, there were problems in keeping the statute books updated as it took more than 2 months to implement new legislative contents. Supplier-centered legal information: Challenges in utilization of legal information There is a wide range of legislative consumers including specialists in the process, judges, prosecutors and lawyers who are information consumers in jurisdictional field, jurists who have academic influence on the national legislative and jurisdictional system, civil servants responsible for law enforcement, and foreign investors who want to access Korea’s legal information. However, there was no integrated channel to provide access to diverse legal information. In particular, the legal information in the past simply provided legal information with no consideration for the general public, and the complicated vocabularies and sentence structures made it difficult to understand and apply the legislation. Citizens had to spend a considerable amount of time and effort in order to understand relevant legislation since they were hindered by the lack of accessibility and professional knowledge, as well as a lack of a search system catered to the citizens. Because of this problem, all costs resulting from the process were to be covered by the citizens themselves or other legislative consumers. The aforementioned problem highlights the need to develop a legal information system that allows the general public to more easily comprehend legislative content written at a professional level, and to provide legal information that can be used conveniently and easily by the public. Also, there is a higher social demand for public disclosure of legal information, so as to enhance transparency of government policy and administrative fairness as well as to prevent law enforcers from interpreting and enforcing legislation arbitrarily.

B. Strategic Approach

 2. What was the solution?
Making a portal site on legal information of Ministry of Government Legislation(MOLEG) In order to respond to the social demand for legal information services and to resolve the problems about legal information, the MOLEG launched a demonstration project following a review of necessary matters in 2007. The project was officially initiated in 2009 from the e-Government perspective by incorporating the plan for the Korea Law Information Center(KLIC) in the framework plan for national informatization. This project was promoted for 4 years from 2009 to 2012 with the goals of 1) providing free legislative service to ordinary citizens and administrative organizations by quickly and accurately organizing legal information including legislation, judicial precedents, and administrative rules scattered throughout different administrative organizations and 2) establishing a portal site on legal information including various contents so that ordinary citizens can easily understand and utilize legal information in their everyday lives. Establishment of the Korea Law Information Center as a legal information portal: Integrated search for national legal information 1) Integrated legal information service The Korea Law Information Center( was created to enable integrated search by databasing and linking legal information scattered throughout different administrative agencies such as existing statutes of the Republic of Korea and its history, treaties, orders, regulations of central administrative agencies and local governments, Supreme Court precedents, Constitutional Court decisions, examples of legislation interpretations, Administrative Appeal Commission decisions, attachments and forms of legislation, and legislative terms. 2) Improvement of utilization of legal information through connection between legislation The KLIC provides not only integrated legal information, but also a mutual linking function that enables viewing of content by clicking on the title of higher/lower level laws mentioned in a main statute, provision history service that allows comprehensive viewing of revisions related to specific provisions, and a three-stage comparison chart and new/old provisions comparison chart for comparative viewing of higher/lower level laws and new/old provisions. The KLIC also offers a variety of functions for the public such as 1) providing an explanation for legislative terminology by extracting terms defined in legislations, 2) providing related legal information service including higher/lower level laws related to specific legal information, related laws and similar laws and 3) providing an electronic statute book editing function that allows users to utilize/print/save/edit legal information. 3) Launch of mobile service A mobile application for the KLIC was developed and launched in 2010 to allow mobile access to legal information, considering the fact that the smartphone supply rate has grown. Delivery consumer-oriented service on legal information By allowing free and easy access to almost all the legal information of the Republic of Korea, 1) the general public can easily access and use relevant legislations as well as daily legal information, 2) legislative experts can easily find and utilize similar cases in the past during the process of transforming policies into legislations, 3) jurisdictional experts such as judges and lawyers can secure definition through accurate interpretation of legislation based on enactment purpose of it and its legislative history 4) administrative experts including civil servants are able to practice legislation-based administration based by finding legislation related to their duties, and contribute to increasing public satisfaction on administration by following a clear standard for administrative practices through examples of legislative interpretations and courts' decisions, and 5) jurists are able to produce effective study results by collecting and processing diverse cases of legislations and court rulings. As a result, such integration of legal information and the establishment of a quick search function eliminated wasteful administration processes, expanded rule of law in everyday lives therefore making it convenient for citizens and saving socials costs.

 3. How did the initiative solve the problem and improve people’s lives?
Innovative improvement of accessibility to legal information through free service The Korean government now considers legal information to be valuable public property. Public accessibility and availability have been improved in through fast and accurate updates by compiling all legal information in one place and developing free mobile applications which can be utilized in one's daily life. Also, repetitive development was prevented in advance and social value was maximized by opening all legal information in the KLIC and allowing approximately 400 public and private organizations to share relevant data. Creative additional service Also, the day of proclamation service, offering prompt of law amendments was launched automatically generate existing statutes by analyzing law amendments proclaimed in the daily official gazette. The way, which used to take more than two months manually, was innovatively shortened. Next, the KLIC not only accumulates and provides a simple database but also offers creative additional services such as mutual connection function between legislations, and electronic statute book-creating system for all users. By doing so, it makes it convenient for legislative consumers. Although it is considered integration of legal information was impossible, we made it possible by developing and sharing the information for the sake of people.

C. Execution and Implementation

 4. In which ways is the initiative creative and innovative?
Strategic objective for innovative improvement of the legal information system The project on the integration of national legal information was established with the purpose of realizing a society of trust where rules and principles are obeyed by raising service standards for legal information so that the general public can conveniently look up and utilize legal information. Under such a goal, establishing a service foundation has been set as an important promotion strategy to provide fast and convenient searching of relevant legal information for the public, offer legislative service for easy understanding and utilization of legislation in everyday lives, overcome limits in text-based legal information service, and actively respond to the changing living environment of future society and different user demands. MOLEG’s delivery service on integration of national legal information The MOLEG, which manages all legal information in the Republic of Korea, has prepared a “plan for improvement of legislative information service” from 2007 to 2008 and reviewed all matters required for project promotion by conducting a pilot project. In 2009, integrated national legal information service plan was established and as a part of e-Government projects, the project for establishing integrated legal information service and developing new services was implemented. The project was directed at MOLEG creates a database the administrative agencies of different levels can catalogue and manage administrative their respective rules and that makes it possible that all of the administrative agencies could to archive their regulations and manage them within the system. In 2009, court decisions, treaties and cases of administrative adjudication were systematically integrated with cooperation from the Consitutional Court, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Central Administrative Appeals Commission in order to integrate all legal information related to Korean current legislation and provide linked service on subordinary regulations and every court’s precedents. Since 2010, the integration of administrative rules officially began and this was connected to the existing statute to provide an integrated service. The database on local government legislation was built around this time. Also, a dictionary for legal terminology was compiled by extracting legislative terminology from legislative contents. In 2012, administrative rules were integrated to include affiliated agencies of central administrative organizations. In addition, the scope of cases of administrative adjudication was expanded to include cases of the tax tribunal’s administrative judgments and the rulings of the Fair Trade Commission and Financial Services Commission. Developing an edit-and-review system, which can establish and update accurate legal information promptly, make its access possible through internet as soon as that is reported in the official gazette. The integrated data has earned a user satisfaction rating of approximately 84% and an average monthly hit of approximately 140,000,000. Initiate a new mobile-service on legal information tailored to social trend In 2010, a smartphone application service was launched to allow access to legal information anywhere in response to the social trend of increasing smartphone users. Through this application, all legal information provided on the KLIC can be searched on smartphones at any time. This has contributed to providing the general public with legal information, and 1,000,000 downloads have been made so far. Development on consumer-oriented practical law service center With widespread rule of law, there has been an increase in demand for legal information infrastructure that allows citizens to easily find relevant legislation in case of legal problems in daily lives. In response to such demand, a service project for offering practical law information contents by topic, classified into 220 categories such as “starting up a restaurant,” “apartment dweller”, “divorce” and “succession”, was initiated in 2008 to make complex legal information easy to understand for the people.

 5. Who implemented the initiative and what is the size of the population affected by this initiative?
Users of legal information: Ordinary citizens, civil servants, lawyers, working-level corporate employees The project for establishing the KLIC was promoted by various demands and ideas for improvement of legal information service from frequent users of legal information including ordinary citizens, lawyers, civil servants and judges who are responsible for trial work at the judicial branch. In particular, the national legal information center was established in an effort to offer accurate legal information to the public, the biggest legal information consumer, with tremendous effort and continuous development of the system by legislative officers and the Legal Information Division of the MOLEG. Supply and cooperation of legal information: The Supreme Court, Constitutional Court, Central and Local Government Prior to the establishment of the KLIC, there were difficulties in integrating legal information as it was produced by various administrative organizations. However, administrative organizations of different levels started to combine and provide more legal information in the KLIC with the integration of legislative history, administrative rule, judicial precedent, and legal terminology, thus enabling easier search and utilization as well as higher satisfaction on legal information. Therefore, the KLICs’ vast pool of information and high accuracy is a result of participation from administrative organizations of different levels, the Supreme Court, and local governments. Expansion of information sharing in KLIC: 400 organizations including administrative organizations and private corporations In the early stages of forming the legal information DB, there was strong opposition from private companies that offered legislation services for a fee. However, as the MOLEG began to provide reliable and up-to-date legal information service to administrative organizations of different levels and private corporations through the KLIC at no cost , each organization started to utilize legal information provided by the KLIC and developed an overall trust towards legal information.
 6. How was the strategy implemented and what resources were mobilized?
Budget acquisition and execution for projects The project on integration of national legal information has been categorized into legal information integration project and practical law information content service project by topic. Every year, the yearly e-Government budget was secured, and the early establishment plan was supplemented by predicting technological advancements and then reflected in the e-Government budget. From 2009 to 2012, a total budget of USD 4.8 million(KRW 5.1 billion) was spent for the legal information integration project, including USD 2.1 million for establishing the KLIC, USD 2.7 million for integrating the legal information scattered in different administrative organizations into a DB. Also, a total budget of USD 4.1 million(KRW 4.4 billion) was spent for the practical law information content service project, including USD 1.7 million for developing the practical law information service system and USD 2.4 million for creating legal information contents. The total project budget for improving legal information service was approximately USD 8.9 million(KRW 9.5 billion), which was supported from e-Government budget of Republic of Korea as the government realized the importance of integrated legal information service. Labor force and technology from diverse fields involved in the project The collection and analysis of user demands, project planning, logical design, and project management were conducted mainly by the legal information Division within the MOLEG. The physical design and implementation of the system, testing and management, establishment of legal information and contents production were realized through external private corporations specializing in ICT and legal information. In early 2007, a project was initiated for project examination, planning, and launch of a demonstration service by forming a TF team with 8 internal workers in the MOLEG. This laid the foundation for easy management and distribution of legal information including legislative management guidelines for delivering the content and definition of legislations with the effort of Legislative Officers in the MOLEG who are in charge of legislation reviewing/interpretation and administrative judgement, discovering cases for application, and the explanation of technical terms. It also enhanced fairness and reliability of the legal information service business with IT professionals of the legal information Division supervising the management and operation of the system. Currently, related to law information service, patents have been obtained on two cases from the Korean Intellectual Property Office regarding technology acquired through operating the KLIC, also other patents are being applied on two cases of diagram charts and reviewing function of legislation. Promotion method of project and strategy for securing resources In the early stages of the project, it was difficult to explain the project content to secure work force and budget or provide grounds for the project’s necessity. However, as the project was successfully launched and stabilized, it began to receive favorable support from the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, which oversees budget of the Republic of Korea. The Korea National Assembly, which is a legislative branch, also agreed on the importance of this project and supported the smooth operation of the project through budget acquisition.

 7. Who were the stakeholders involved in the design of the initiative and in its implementation?
Providing laws and regulations free of charge by establishing of the KLIC The first result that contributed to successfully achieving the goal of the project is the establishment of the KLIC, which integrates the vast legal information scattered throughout the administrative organizations of different levels and allows unified search of legal information. The KLIC allows easy public access to legal information and reduced the time taken in searching for legal information by solving the inconvenience of having to visit websites of each different administrative organization or purchase paper statute books to retrieve practical law information. The average daily number of legal information users was 70,000 in 2008. After the project was complete, the number of users increased by approximately 270% to about 260,000. Automated system for fast and accurate legal information management By automatizing the update process and accuracy testing of legal information, it became possible to provide legal information with speed and accuracy, not taking more than the day of law amendment promulgation. Before the project, legal information was manually updated into a DB, making it vulnerable to errors. By using the system, however, leading to an increase in public trust towards legal information. Thanks to the automatization of the legal information management process, no additional manpower is required for managing legal information although the amount of legal information is rapidly increasing, reaching about 40,000 cases every year. Various additional services including mobile application development The main difference of the KLIC from other foreign websites is that it offers various additional free services on legal information. It links legislation names or provisions mentioned in the main text of the laws and provides function for comparing lower/higher level provisions and new/old legislations. Also, a smartphone service has been developed to allow users to look up legal information anytime and anywhere. This has been available to the public since 2010 and enjoys a high popularity with 1,000,000 downloads so far. Practical law information content service by topic Lastly, another factor for the KLIC’s success is the practical law information service that organizes, categorizes, processes and provides legal information in daily lives at a level that can be easily understood by ordinary citizens. Legal experts and professionals are in charge of creating contents, including data collection, organization, and interpretation, its advantage lies in going beyond simply providing legal information to processing and providing high-quality legal information for free.

 8. What were the most successful outputs and why was the initiative effective?
Procedure and monitoring of promotion of the e-Government project of the Republic of Korea The informatization business of administrative organizations of the Republic of Korea must be carried out with reference to various guidelines and manuals such as “Management Guidelines for e-Government Service Project,” “Operation Guideline for e-Government Service project,” published by the Ministry of Security and Public Administration(MOSPA), which is responsible for the e-Government project, and the National Information Society Agency(NIA), a specialized organization for management of the informatization project. The project on integration of national legal information was conducted in the order of securing project budget according to various guidelines and manuals provided by the government, establishing project plan, selecting project operator, planning, designing, implementing, testing, system inspection by ICT specialist, reporting of project completion, and project evaluating. The project on the integration of national legal information was promoted by establishing a yearly project plan based on the project content included in the framework plan for national informatization, which was established in 2009. The project was reported to organization employees and stakeholders through a initial report, intermediate report, and final report in the project promotion process, and various opinions were collected and reflected in the project. Establishment of performance goal and project execution according to related legislation Evaluation of the project on the integration of national legislation was conducted every year by establishing sectoral performance goals and performance indicators from the planning stage to the finishing stage of the informatization project. The sectoral performance goals set in this project were evaluated by measuring the daily number of visitors, the number of organization supplied with legal information, and the time taken to update legal information, and user satisfaction of the KLIC. The yearly performance goals were set by considering the performance and trend during the past 2 years, and then confirmed through the mediation process involving an evaluation meeting attended by internal and external specialists in legislation and ICT. Also, the performance of informatization project was examined through the experts’ meeting, and the various opinions obtained during the evaluation process were reflected in the project in the following year. “Regulations on the Provision and Management of legal information” was created to improve professionalism and efficiency in the process of legal information update and management, and also to allow consistent and stable servicing of legal information.

 9. What were the main obstacles encountered and how were they overcome?
Resistance to integration of legal information In the past, due to lack of awareness that legal information was public property, there were no related regulations or compulsory measures on the management or publicization of legal information. There was a general tendency to resist disclosing administrative information to the public as there were possibilities of complaints or administrative delays if administrative rules and regulations were revealed. Most regulations of central and local government, which is made to dispose of each government’s undertakings, were stored in the form of paper documents or hardly managed. To solve the aforementioned problem, the MOLEG developed and supplied a standardized system for convenient registration and management of legal informaion, thus allowing integration of all legal information under the KLIC. Difficulty of securing on financial support The legal information service sector is perceived as a complex and hard area to improve, which made it difficult to obtain project approval and budget. To solve this problem, various tasks were derived by organizing and analyzing user demands that were systematically collected during past legal information service. A consensus was reached through confirming and explaining yearly project plans with identification of potential needs. Lack of implementation technology and manpower for legal information service There have been difficulties in that entirely new projects had to be executed due to the lack of domestic or international reference cases, where legal information was integrated and legal information contents were developed. In particular, there was a shortage of manpower for standardizing and integrating various legal information, and most were inexperienced in creating legal information contents. The above issue was overcome by producing various models for the process of establishing and managing the legal information DB, as well as the process of implementing legal information contents, and planning and designing each stage of the project.

D. Impact and Sustainability

 10. What were the key benefits resulting from this initiative?
Toward the advancement for integration service on legal information for free The biggest feature of the project on the integration of national legal information is that it provides the public with integrated legal information previously scattered throughout administrative organizations, and that it has constructed a basic infrastructure of legal information service through providing various legal information contents for easy understanding and utilization of legal information in daily lives. The KLIC systematically integrates and utilizes a total of 1,800,000 cases of legal information including 4,500 cases of existing statutes and the histories, 14,000 cases of existing administrative rules, 105,000 cases of local government ordinances, Supreme Court precedents, and Constitutional Court decisions. Also, establishing a “One Click, Practical law” website, classified into 220 legal information categories to make the contents easy to understand for the people, such as “starting up a restaurant,” “transportations and driving,” and “divorce.” Useful information for foreign residents in the Republic of Korea such as “hiring foreign employees,” “multi-cultural families,” and “foreign investment” is provided in ten foreign languages including English, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mongolian to support them to settle in Korea. Protection of citizens’ right-to-know and improvement of administrative transparency The most positive effect of this project is that it has generated a law-abiding spirit among public organization employees and contributed to the establishment of law and order by providing the integrated service of legal information, which is closely related to citizens’ lives and enables easy and convenient retrieval of legal information. Through the KLIC, an average of 260,000 visitors are searching and utilizing legal information in 2013, and the number of visitors are dramatically increasing every year compared with just 70,000 visitors in 2008, which satisfies the citizens’ right-to-know regarding legal information. Also, the tasks of ordinary citizens and public organizations can be executed more quickly and accurately by improving the speed and accuracy of legal information. This prevents delays in work of individuals, organizations and civil complaints, and minimizes inconveniences in citizens’ lives and confusions due to discordance of legislation and difficulties in unified search. In addition, the publicization of administrative rules of different administrative organizations that regulate administrative procedures and standards has prevented civil servants from interpreting and enforcing legislation arbitrarily. This has contributed to enhancing the transparency of administrative policies and administrative fairness. Economic effects and prevention of wasteful overlapping service through free opening of legal information service The biggest feature of integrated legal information through the KLIC is that ordinary citizens and public organizations can search and utilize legal information for free. The private portal websites for legal information in the Republic of Korea and the United States provide various legal information including current legislative provisions at an average annual fee of about $1,000 for each user. The total number of KLIC customers is estimated to be about 1,500,000, considering that KLIC’s average daily number of visitors is approximately 260,000 and average monthly hits reaching 140,000,000. Thus, by considering the foreign usage fee of legal information and the number of domestic customers, an annual economic outcome of $150,000,000 is estimated. Also, the KLIC updates legal information everyday and services about 400 public organizations and private corporations. The organizations supplied with legal information are able to save annual costs for building, maintaining, repairing and updating legal information and prevent administrative waste. Reduction of social cost through ICT Lastly, individual organizations managing legal information used to manually collect and update legal information in the past. It took a long time to inspect errors in legal information, and there were difficulties in providing additional services such as links between legal information, 3-stage comparison chart, and new/old legislation comparison chart. Also, system maintenance was costly since the various tasks required a large professional workforce such as system management workers and professional workers, as well as equipment-related space. The KLIC has recognized this problem and drastically reduced the costs of integrating and providing legal information by creating a system that automatically edits and updates legal information in technical aspects, and conducts inspection to ensure that quick and accurate updates have been made.

 11. Did the initiative improve integrity and/or accountability in public service? (If applicable)
Sustainability of legal information system The legal information system has the biggest number of visitors out of all the information systems created by the central administration in the Republic of Korea, and it is already recognized as an infrastructure for national informatization. Approximately 400 administrative organizations and private corporations receive updated legal information everyday through the legal information system, and on average about 260,000 citizens use the system everyday. With significant developments in ICT and rise in demands related to environmental issues, level of social awareness, and political demands, it is becoming an important task to make laws for the mentioned topics. To solve this problem, the MOLEG is planning a project with four promotion goals including a unified legal information search service for easy access and search of legal information, various additional services for easy utilization of legislation information in everyday lives for the public, legislative knowledge service for easy understanding of legal information, and a problem-solving service based on looking up personal legal cases using legal information. Transferable possibility of legal information system 1) Applicable in any country with rule of law governance The KLIC is very well received as a legal information portal among the public and used by a daily average of 260,000 visitors. Since 2010, the KLIC has been introduced to various countries such as Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand, Mongol and East Timor, and it is being used as a benchmark. The KLIC is acknowledged as the world’s leading legal information service by legal specialists. Looking at the benchmarking cases so far, developing countries that lack legal information infrastructure are interested in the propagation of legal information for stable establishment of rule of law, and the legal information system in general to allow convenient public access. Countries that already have legal information system are also showing interest in the technical aspects of the KLIC, which manages legal information quickly and accurately, and the development methods behind additional services. 2) Mutual development of legislative knowledge through worldwide sharing of legal information Using the legal information system, global legislative knowledge can be built by sharing of legal information between the Republic of Korea and countries around the world. Major organizations in the Republic of Korea are investing a large workforce and budget into collecting and integrating foreign legal information because legal information must be continuously updated due to its changing nature. By sharing legal information, the legal information of other countries can be used in the Republic of Korea without having to build it into the DB. Countries that adopt the legal information service can cut error from the process of system establishment, save workforce and costs, and effectively improve the quality of legal information service in a short period of time. The MOLEG plans to actively promote Korea legal information system to distribute the legal information system to other countries, and will exert concerted efforts for successful propagation of the system by discussing plans for system localization according to the circumstances of importing countries.

 12. Were special measures put in place to ensure that the initiative benefits women and girls and improves the situation of the poorest and most vulnerable? (If applicable)
Detailed analysis and review of user demands In the Republic of Korea, all existing statutes have been built into digital data and provided through administrative organizations and PC communications network since 1985. From 1998, existing statues and history, and judicial precedents were built into the DB and provided through the internet. Nevertheless, there have been persistent demands for an improved legal information service including corrections of legal information errors and reduction of legal information update time. The MOLEG has consistently collected and analyzed such demands for improving legal information service for a long time. The MOLEG, therefore was able to utilize this information for the development of a new system. Also, through hosting expert meetings, the technology required for project promotion and opinions on project direction were gathered in the project development process. With many ideas provided by experts such as administrative organizations and judicial branch, who are frequent users of legal information, a service that can be easily utilized in everyday lives was created. Training of professional workforce with abilities in both ICT and legal information The legal information service requires comprehensive thinking and judgement on legal information due to the many ways of utilizing legal information service and various types of data and service. Thus, professionals with experience and expertise on ICT and legal information are needed to improve the legal information service. Most informatization projects promoted by administrative organizations of different levels have succeeded in development but failed to become widespread because project managers relied excessively on external private corporations and obsessed over the technical aspects of the system. This is caused by the lack of detailed analysis and review on how the system will be used and managed after development. The MOLEG recognized this problem, and promoted the project by introducing experts who have been working in the field for over 10 years and had diverse experience on the improvement of legal information. In order to successfully stabilize a project in the area of legal information service, it is necessary to train and deploy a professional workforce with not only expertise in both ICT and legal information, but also the ability to predict future contents demand and logically analyze/design the system. New service implementation to ensure project success For successful execution of the project, there has to be a social consensus based on comprehensive understanding of the project by the parties involved and a strong leader who takes the initiative. However, it is difficult for non-experts to understand the contents even when provided with an explanation of the importance of the project. In this case, instead of explaining the professional technology or the implementation method in detail, it is important to identify and demonstrate the most important service to enhance understanding of the project by stakeholders and users, so as to secure the required manpower and budget. The KLIC successfully embodied the administrative integrity by establishing the civil-oriented system and it has achieved recognition as time passes.
