To offer practical guidelines for the implementation of e-Solutions for Trade Facilitation (e-ST), such as e-Customs and Single Window, we provide the Implementation Framework for e-Solutions for Trade facilitation (e-STIF). The e-STIF is meant for policy managers, who are responsible for overseeing the implementation of e-ST innovations. Once the initial policy decision is made by the government, policy managers take responsibility for developing a master plan for its implementation, coordinating technical activities, monitoring its progress, and ensuring the delivery of the expected outcomes. The e-STIF covers the full spectrum of implementation activities, using the TOGAF enterprise architecture development methodology to structure the implementation phases. It starts with the preparatory phase to scope the e-ST innovation, supporting the coordination among the various government agencies to harmonize their data and procedures and alignment with international initiatives. Eventually, the e-STIF goes into providing support for specific aspects, like network collaboration and interoperability, using the redesign principles of the ITAIDE Information Infrastructure (I3) framework. © 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
