On November 28 and 30, SE “Infotech” of the Ministry of Internal Affairs concluded two agreements based on the results of tenders according to the register of weapons for a total amount of UAH 49 million. This is reported in the Prozorro system, Our Money writes.
Compass Engineering is upgrading a backup data center for UAH 47 million as part of the implementation of the Unified Weapons Register functional subsystem of the unified information system of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Modernization concerns network infrastructure, including network protection, computing infrastructure, power supply systems, air conditioning, ventilation and gas removal. In addition, the Cipher O company must supply cryptographic information protection tools of its own design for this subsystem for UAH 3 million.
Tenders were announced in November with the delivery of equipment and services until the end of the year. In September, Deputy Interior Minister Ihor Bondarenko said in an interview with Ukrinform that at that moment the Unified Weapons Register was working in test mode, and could fully start working at the end of October. According to him, “the functionality of the Register provides for the creation of an electronic account of the owner of a weapon, through which a person can apply for the purchase and storage of weapons, update data and carry out other mandatory procedures.” The algorithm for registering a weapon is similar to the process of registering a vehicle and obtaining a driver's license.
