This chapter explores the standardization in Swiss e‐government considered as a knowledge transfer network. It outlines theory of knowledge networks and presents eCH as an organization and the ways of working at eCH. The chapter shows the complexity of knowledge management and transfer as well as the importance of knowledge workers in the field of public‐private partnerships (PPPs) and society in general. The goal of eCH is the creation, application, integration and retention of knowledge about e‐government across the society as a whole. The chapter provides a brief overview of the concepts of tacit and explicit knowledge. The most relevant stakeholders for providing good solutions in e‐government are the administrative bodies and suppliers supporting these bodies in building e‐government solutions. The standardization is identified as a considerable factor for reducing costs, while promoting common solutions.
