Project Description

The main objective of the project is to create a business intelligence module (BIM) for the State Customs Service (SCS) of Ukraine, and to enhance its risk analysis system.

More specifically, we will undertake the following activities:

  • ​Identify requirements for the design of a BIM for the SCS;
  • Guide the implementation of a separately selected (3rd-party) service provider that has to deliver development works, software licenses and maintenance, which together are intended to build, test, train, and launch the business intelligence platform;
  • Obtain relevant data, analyze available data sources, initial data load, and prepare conclusions about data quality and conformity;
  • Assess data availability, quality, and conformity with the BIM’s purpose;
  • Secure decision by SCS officials about the finalized scope of production of the applications;
  • Develop data extraction algorithms, as well as blending, mapping, and consolidating data from the sources provided by the SCS, where required;
  • Place the results in the designed data model, which will then be used to build analytical applications comprising dashboards, analysis, and reporting and self-service tools;
  • Provide sizing and handling installation of the business intelligence platform in the technical environment provided by the SCS;
  • Enhance the automated system of analysis and risk (ASAUR) management to decrease the number of containers subject to physical inspections and allow Ukraine`s private sector, including SMEs, to benefit from better border management through:

    - Evaluating the SCS's automated system of analysis and risk management;
    - Analyzing the risk factors;
    - Identifying functionality flaws; and
    - Assessing the legislative gaps.

  • Upgrade the SCS's ASAUR system based on the conducted analysis as well as a review of customs declarations;
  • Support the SCS to detect, address, and forecast customs violations;
  • Strengthen the capacity of the SCS and boost its internal procedures in data collection and analysis; and
  • Contribute to making the SCS's decision-making process data-driven and strongly focused on transparency and commercial impact.
