Implementation Partnership Masterportal

The Implementation Partnership (IP) was founded aiming to develop the Masterportal independently, sustainably and stably. In the IP, all partners can equally decide on strategic and technical issues relating to the software product. With partners from the public sector, this project contributes to building a digitally sovereign state.

The Implementation Partnership was founded in 2018 by representatives from the cities of Munich, Frankfurt a.M., Remscheid, Hamburg and Schwerin with the Ludwigslust-Parchim district. With a steadily growing number of members, the IP now has 34 members (as of Dec. 2021).

The IP Masterportal is based on several "pillars". Each of its own functions and knowledge that contribute to the stability of the product and community:

Strategic Committee:

  • Body for strategic and official decisions.
  • Controls the development and funding of the master portal
  • Every partner with equal voting rights
  • Managing director: Landesbetrieb Geodaten und Vermessung Hamburg

Technical Committee:

  • Body for technical assessments and recommendations
  • Makes recommendations to the strategic committee
  • Fundamentally shapes the technical development
  • Primary assessment of whether new functions will be incorporated into the central code
  • Managing director: Landesbetrieb Geodaten und Vermessung Hamburg

Product Maintenance:

  • Is responsible for the stability and releases of the master portal
  • Fixes bugs reported in the central issue tracker
  • Represented by the LGV Hamburg

Product Management:
