An integrated computerized system aimed at preventing conflict of interest instances in real time will be operational before mid-2014. In its first phase, the system will identify cases in the public procurement department using EU funds, expanding subsequently to nationwide public procurements, Horia Georgescu, president of ANI (the National Integrity Agency), stated according to Hotnews. In this respect, the Agency will soon conclude a financing contract worth EUR 7 million in structural funds.
“We have named the project Prevent – an integrated platform designed to interact with SEAP (Public Procurement Electronic System); ANI will then automatically process the data. It is the first such system and the first time these databases will work together, without us having to open tens and thousands of files to block such projects that would block absorption,” Georgescu said at the ‘Future Communities // Open Innovation Fair’, a technology event inaugurated Wednesday, October 30, at the National Library and organized by Biblionet Romania in partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Information Society.
