Background: The United Nations Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) sought to establish a verification and inspection database that would effectively operationalize and manage services due to poor operationalization and management of services in the processing of shipments all over the world.
Solution: In light of this, the UNVIM sought to establish a system through which they would be advised of upcoming shipments. Bewsys designed and developed a verification and inspection database system that functioned as an interface between UNVIM and stakeholders, processing clearance requests, archiving records, notifying requesting parties of missing and/or extra documents, and/or forthcoming inspections, and audits and summary reports. The database was set up to host the UNOPS server, and the system was built with features including sending and receiving notifications when new requests were filed, a user-friendly interface, forms, and access control.
Impact: The impact of this new database was efficient in that it allowed the UNOPS to accomplish its functions without relying on data from external stakeholders. This has also aided in the monitoring and inspection of commercial and bilateral aid sent to Yemeni ports. The UNVIM can now deliver huge sums of food and other supplies to disaster stricken places thereby contributing to the achievement of UN SDGs 1 (reducing poverty), 2 (reducing hunger), and 10 (reducing inequality) (reduced inequalities).
