Tenders can be submitted to the e-Governance Academy until 28 April 2017 as part of a procurement to obtain secure interoperability across government for Ukraine.

The procurement is being carried out as part of the EGOV4UKRAINE project of the Ukrainian decentralisation support programme U-LEAD, which is supported by the European Union and the development cooperation programmes of Sweden and Estonia.

Interoperability across government forms the basis of the provision of public services in the more than 600 service centres of local authorities in Ukraine. It will provide the service centres with access to information in national registers and thereby the opportunity to provide public services promptly and to a high degree of quality. Interoperability also forms the basis of the further development of e-services designed for citizens. The solution is to be implemented by the end of 2018.

“In developing e-services we’re helping the Ukrainian government cut red tape and minimise the threat of corruption, since the processing of data and other activities of the state will become more transparent,” explained e-Governance Academy expert and EGOV4UKRAINE team leader Mari Pedak.
