The project amounts to 27.79 million euros, with a date of submission of bids on September 19 and unsealing on October 7.

As stated in the notice, the aim of the “Central Hub for the Management and Analysis of Large Volume Multidimensional Data” is to provide information both to governmental users (central government, public services, etc.) and to external users (e.g. citizens, independent authorities, institutions, etc.), in order to adequately support government strategic planning, crisis management, monitoring the quality of services to citizens, planning new services and generally supporting the process of providing information/information and decision-making.

Regarding the necessity of implementing the project, the notice points out that the Ministry of Digital Governance, through the General Secretariat of Digital Governance & Simplification of Processes, intends to procure, as a matter of priority and overall, services for the implementation of a “Central Management Hub and Analysis of Multidimensional Data of Large Volume”, which will collect and homogenize information from all the relevant systems of the wider public administration and produce performance indicators, with a hierarchical structure, to monitor the efficiency of governance in a measurable way.

The reports and analyzes to be provided by the “Large Volume Multidimensional Data Management and Analysis Central Hub” are categorized into four main pillars (data management & analysis pillars):

A) Economy & development,

B) Social structures & services,

C) Environment & infrastructure,

D) Digital transformation & public opinion.

In the context of the project, the above pillars will be confirmed with the executive contracts and may be adapted based on the latest reporting and analysis needs.

Data collection

The “Central Hub for the Management and Analysis of Large Volume Multidimensional Data” will aggregate data that is primarily available in:

systems that support internal processes such as the Government’s Integrated Fiscal Policy Information System (Gov ERP), the Human Resources Management System (HRMS), the Payroll System (Single Payment Authority), the Management System, the Electronic Public Procurement System (E -procurement), the Electronic Document Management System (EDMS), etc..

citizen support systems such as the Civil Registry, the Government Customer Service System (CRM), the Electronic Prescription System (e-prescription), the Statistical Service information, the National Registry, the National Land Registry, the Tax Administration System (TAXISnet), etc.

The information from all the above systems, and/or from intermediate data repositories that may have enriched relevant information, will be located in a central point, unified in a common and unified model, and grouped by application area, so that it can support the creation reports and analyzes along the aforementioned pillars.

As mentioned, ensuring privacy and protecting personal and sensitive data, such as census-registry data, financial data, medical records, asset data (property-vehicles), etc., is an important priority for the system to be implemented.

Consequently this should provide for mechanisms and policies to incorporate the principles of the relevant legislation (GDPR), from the design phase (Personal Data Protection by design and by default), indicatively covering the definition of use cases and the management of consent citizens for the use of their data, the anonymization of information, the monitoring of system security and the identification/reporting of potential risks (data breaches), etc.
