Evaluation of the Technical Offers and for the Audit Quality for the Integrated land Administration System Project (ILAS)
Following the findings of the World Bank ILAS mission (November 2011 and February, 2012) and the current crisis situation related to the implementation of Joint Information System (JIS) Contract and JIS functioning (i.e. slow performance, missing joint business processes, frequent system failure, etc.), it was decided to stop the roll-out of the JIS, and to perform a JIS quality audit. Outcome of this audit should include a comparison of contracted – delivered requirements, finding facts regarding the JIS functionality, JIS IT/IS Architecture, JIS software architecture, and other relevant topics influencing the current situation. Also, recommendations to resolve the encountered problems should be made including estimations of resources, planning & duration.
