Synapse (information system)

Rationale of use

France's CAP governance has necessitated a consolidated IT architecture capable of streamlining, auditing, and validating data for the Annual Performance Report, ensuring uniqueness among CAP beneficiaries across different paying agencies.


The SYNAPSE system emphasises interoperability between various management systems, minimising redundancy in data requests, and establishing a unique identifier number (GUID). Data sent by each paying agency undergoes checks for completeness, authorisation, and correctness before processing.
