The Interior Ministry has announced a public tender to select a supplier to design, develop, and implement an information system for a national registry of persons at an estimated cost of €18.5 million. According to information published in the European Official Journal, the software platform of the data system should be based on the operating system IBM AIX.
The creation of the registry will involve an analysis of current needs, the design of the architecture of the registry system, its development, as well as programming, implementation and testing, migration of data from existing data modules, launching trial operation, operational support and maintenance, including training of administrators and operators of the registry's information system.
The sole criterion to select the winner will be the lowest price, the SITA newswire wrote. The closing date for submission of bids is July 21. The contract will be signed for two years. The registry of physical entities is a data base of all persons who come into contact with public administration. SITA
