At its meeting on July 1, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the implementation of a pilot project of the Unified State Electronic System in the field of construction.
According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, this is a truly revolutionary project, which was been elaborated for months.
"The result of this project will be tangible for everyone, because we will have a transparent system where the responsible developer receives documents through the e-system, and the investor will have an opportunity to see what stage of the construction undergoes the object. The system, in addition to convenience and the elimination of the corruption component, should create a situation where Ukrainians will not be afraid to buy new housing. Because it will be transparently, object-oriented and protected by the state," Denys Shmyhal stressed.
While presenting the project of the Unified Electronic System, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov said: “Unfortunately, for a long time the so-called SACI register, which neither physically nor legally belonged to the state, was a significant tool of corruption in urban planning. Besides, the register used to allow unauthorized access by private individuals, contained hidden scripts aimed at implementing corruption mechanisms, had very poor data quality, and did not contain a unique identifier for the construction site. That is why one of the key elements of the reform is the introduction of a single state electronic system in the field of construction, which aims to maximize the automation of all processes in the industry."
According to him, "the main idea of the system is that all documents for each particular object should be created in the system itself. This will allow to systematize the data and make this process completely transparent."
The implementation of this project envisages the following: the creation of a modern construction register with full access to all data; provision of automatic administrative services without the participation of officials, thereby allowing to reduce the terms of such services provision and improve their quality; reduction of corruption risks, etc. The project aims at maximum automation and transparency of all processes in the construction industry.
According to the Ministry of Digital Transformation data, a total of more than 60,000 people will be connected to the system, including architects, certified persons, local governments, etc., who will have access only by electronic signature.
