Working steps of the RSS information system: 1. Identification of needs/requirements and analysis of indicators for the needs of the RSS, Ministry of Agriculture, and evaluators. 2. Inclusion of the required information in the application/ reporting forms. 3. Farmers and beneficiaries enter the data in the Electronic Application System where logical controls and data existence controls are performed. 4. The data is managed in a structured way for most of indicators. 5. Creation of data classifiers in the database so data can be easily processed and analysed. 6. Data is transferred to the Oracle Business Intelligence data warehouse (OBI– tool used for reporting and data analysis) where it can be easily queried for the purpose of evaluation, reporting, or research in order to not overload the database with report requests.

Types of outputs

An IT system with around 650 users with over 80,000 external users for the EAS.

The data warehouse can be accessed directly by 50 users including the RSS, Ministry of Agriculture, Institute of Agricultural Resources and Economics, evaluators, and others with more than 1000 different processes performed each day. Therefore, evaluators have information about applicants stored in other systems.
