Activity Synopsis (ID# 32739) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) Technical Infrastructure of the APML is improved to collect, analyse and exchange information necessary to prevent and control money laundering, terrorist financing and predicate financial crimes. 
Output/Results 1) Assessment of IT infrastructure (July 2011):

In July 2011, a series of meetings were held with the Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering (APML) regarding the assessment of its IT Infrastructure. MOLI Serbia project team has sent a call for offers on 15 August 2011 to three IT experts in Serbia, who have had previous experience in this type of work. All three of these consultants have responded to the call for offers and have submitted their offers based on the Terms of Reference they were provided with. Following the review of offers, MOLI Project team commissioned an IT Consultant to produce a technical specification paper ready for the Tender Board in Autumn 2011 for the procurement of new software for the APML.

1. iBridge User Course (6-7 October 2011)

In August 2011, the Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering expressed the need to train two of its IT Analysts in iBridge software. There is an apparent tendency of growth in the number of financial transactions through Western Union, so this source of data becomes more and more important in APML’s analyses. In order to cover this data in an efficient manner, APML uses i2 software to produce diagrams of various transactions carried out through commercial banks, exchange offices, etc. This data should also be accepted into the TMIS, for the purposes of advanced analyses using the Oracle Discoverer, which constitutes a preparation for graphic analyses made using the i2 software. The MOLI Serbia project sent two APML analysts to a two-day training course in the use of iBridge software, which is an integral component of the i2 package and Visual Investigative Analysis. The APML Training course for the staff of the APML IT department on iBridge AML software took place in Cambridge, UK, in the period between 6 and 7 October 2011.

2. Training in “Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop I Release 2” (17-21 October 2011).

As of 2008, the Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering has been using the Oracle database to receive, store and keep the data obtained from the obligors under the Law and other state authorities.
The Administration currently uses Oracle Discoverer for analysis and reports. This is a tool intended for creating ad-hoc requests, reports and data analyis based on the entries from the Oracle database. Oracle Business Intelligence is a complex set of tools and components offering a full range of analyitical elements, creation and publishing of reports, including interactive panels, ad-hoc requests, reports and web analyses, as well as distribution of statistical reports. Oracle BI builds on a proven solution – Siebel technology – an entirely service-oriented architecture which is a new generation of BI tools. The system allows for consolidation of data from a number of analytical sources and offers a unique, logical presentation of all data, standardisation of report forms, the final aim is a consolidated report. This system offers a simple and practical presentation of reports and analyses and gives to the business user maximum flexibility in using it.

In late October 2011, the MOLI Serbia Project accommodated the request of the APML to send its IT staff to a first of two training courses in Oracle Database. The first of two five-day trainings held from 17 to 21 October 2011.

Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop I Release 2 training course is designed to give IT analysts a firm foundation in basic database administration. IT analysts learn how to install and maintain an Oracle database. They gain a conceptual understanding of the Oracle database architecture and how its components work and interact with one another. They also learn how to create an operational database and properly manage the various structures in an effective and efficient manner including performance monitoring, database security, user management, and backup/recovery techniques.
