Abstract:


The United Nation's Center for Trade Facilitation
and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT)) is a stan-
dardization body known for its work on UN/EDIFACT
and ebXML. One of its most recent developments is
UN/CEFACT's Modeling Methodology (UMM). The
UMM standard is used to model interorganizational
business processes in the B2B domain. With the
increasing presence of governmental institutions and
their services on the internet, the frontier between B2B
and B2G/G2G vanishes. Today one expects a govern-
mental institution to react like any other business part-
ner. Therefore also governments now face the interop-
erability and compatibility issues as regular businesses
do. In order to allow two governmental institutions to
collaborate, a methodology uniquely depicting the inter-
institutional process from a global perspective is needed.
In this paper we propose to use UN/CEFACT's Mod-
eling Methodology in the eGovernment domain. UMM
allows the de nition of a global choreography which is
then being used to derive local choreographies for each
business partner. Exemplarily a real-world scenario
from the waste transport domain within the European
Union will be shown. Furthermore the possible inte-
gration in the context of the We-Go project1 will be
examined.
