Moscow, February 5, 2015. — Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications carried out first testing of improved version of the System of Interdepartmental Electronic Cooperation (SIEC) in productive environment. Interdepartmental requests of Individual Taxpayers Number via passport in productive environment SIEC 3.0 were successfully tested in four regions of pilot group: Tyumen and Yaroslavl Oblast, Moscow and the Republic of Mordovia.
Gradual transfer to improved version of SIEC was started on January 1, 2015. Launch of new services that don’t meet requirements, is excluded. However, existing services will continue to operate. The previous version couldn’t correctly process reloading and denial of providers’ services, thus, data consumers had to wait for recovery of the system.
New version of SIEC has queue of messages and their delivery is guaranteed. If information system of provider is not available to consumer, SIEC will receive the message and respond will be delivered after recovery of the system. Procedure of sending response to consumer is following the same scheme pattern.
A number of improvements were introduced in the new version of the system. SIEC 3.0 has unified format of information exchange, technical possibility of information interaction between regions of Russia and message volume was also increased from 5 MB to 1 GB.
“Improved SIEC will not only increase efficiency of interdepartmental interaction in electronic form, but will also economize time and money required for forming, delivery and handling of interdepartmental requests to suppliers and consumers of data. It is also expected that labor efforts, required for connection to SIEC 3.0 will be also reduced,” said Vladimir Averbakh.
Four public authorities take part in implementation of improved version of the system. These public authorities provide the most required data. They are: Federal Tax Service, Federal service for State Registration, Pension Fund of Russia and Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. Eight regions of Russia took part in the project. Particularly, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Yaroslavl and Tyumen Oblast, Primorsky Krai, the Republic of Tatarstan, Mordovia and Bashkortostan.
