Who is the Responsible for Digital Transition (RDT)?
Article 17 of the Digital Administration Code, better known as DAC, provides the figure of the Responsible for Digital Transition (RDT) who is entrusted with "the transition to the digital operating mode and the consequent reorganization processes aimed at creating a digital and open administration of easily usable and quality services, through greater efficiency and economy ". One of the tasks of the RDT is therefore to collaborate in order to create easily usable and quality services that function thanks to digital (digital first). To fulfill its task the RDT collaborates with the existing figures such as, for example, the information systems manager, responsible for anti-corruption and transparency, the Data Protection Officer (DPO) and the manager of document management. The RDT is a figure endowed with "adequate technological skills, legal and managerial informatics and responds, with reference to the tasks related to the transition, to the digital modality, directly to the political summit body"
