DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPREHENSIVE RISK MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR INTERINSTITUTIONAL COORDINATION AT NICARAGUA BORDER CHECKPOINTS

Country: Nicaragua

Sector(s): Economic development

Date: 09/2016 - 11/2018

Client / Beneficiary: Ministerio de Hacienda y Crédito Público de Nicaragua

Financing Agency: IDB - Inter-American Development Bank

Project Value: 830,875 €

Description of the project and Services provided:

The general objective of the consultation is to develop and implement an IT system to facilitate institutions in their control of the flow of processes, identification of the modes of transport, security devices equipped with radio frequency identification (RFID), integration and traceability of the results of the risk analysis and management, obtained from the control institutions operating at checkpoints at the borders with Nicaragua.

The specific objectives are:

  1. Identification and development jointly with each institution, of the Risk Indicators and Profiles, which affect operations at border checkpoints.
  2. Design of the Integrated Risk Management System model, characterising the follow-up subsystems and setting out the required technological components required for the linking up and operation of the entire set.
  3. Design, development and implementation of the software interfaces necessary for the interaction of the integrated  risk management system with biometric devices, the camera surveillance system for recognition of licence plates and containers, the RFID reader system (Radio Frequency Identification), the MT weight system, interaction with biometric devices specifically for recognising drivers and interconnection with the systems of the control institutions operating at Nicaragua border checkpoints.
  4. Drafting of user manuals for the Integrated Risk Management System and the guarantee of good management of the system, through the training of the civil servants of the institutions involved.

The results issued are:

  • A technical report and recommendation on the biometric technology and devices applicable for the registration and recognition of drivers at the Nicaragua border checkpoints.
  • A table of risks agreed upon with each institution, which identifies the impact and handling (management) or control of the risks which may arise at the country's border checkpoints.
  • A set of risk indicators and profiles, which affect operations at the border checkpoints, in accordance with current regulations, designed and prioritized with the agreement of the respective institutions.
  • An inventory of necessary data to generate and implement the risk indicators and profiles and their internal or external sources.
  • A proposal for a set of statistics and key performance indicators (KPI) relating to the performance of personnel at each institution and of the systems involved in the risk analysis and management processes at the border checkpoints.
  • An Integrated Risk Management System installed with all its modules functional and interfaces interconnected, operating in the technological platform (Java EE6 or above, previously authorised and approved by the Institutions) designated for that purpose.
