On 20 April 2017, the Armenian interagency working group on the development of the TOR for the Re-admission Case Management Electronic System, composed of representatives of the State Migration Service, the National Security Service, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Police, ICMPD in Armenia and an independent IT expert visited Tbilisi, Georgia to meet with Georgian developers and operators of the system, with the aim of learning from the country’s experience in using the system and exploring ways of replicating the model in Armenia. This visit was a follow-up of an initial familiarisation trip in 2016, with the aim to discuss more in-depth the technical issues related to the development of TOR for the system.
One of MIBMA’s core work areas is supporting the establishment of the Re-admission Case Management Electronic System (RCMES) in Armenia, in order to ensure efficient and properly organised processing of the growing number of readmission cases the country is being confronted with, through a modern, automated processing solution. Being aware of the Georgian experience in establishing and operating RCMES, the MIBMA project invited various relevant agencies to form a working group that would develop and successfully implement the system in Armenia.
During the meeting at the Consular Department of the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, technical details related to the development of the TOR and the system were discussed, as well as special administrative and technical steps were identified. Taking into consideration the institutional differences between the two countries, it became evident that the Armenian system should be developed from scratch. The working group will also try to identify additional functionalities that will make the Armenian system more advanced, at the same time maintaining the required level of simplicity and user-friendlessness for the EU counterparts.
