South Africa: The role of Spatial Dimension in the successful implementation of Liberia’s Government and Economic Management Assistance Program (GEMAP) was recently showcased in an end-of-project documentary produced by GEMAP project sponsors USAID, the World Bank, the IMF and the European Union.
One of the major goals of GEMAP was to implement modern computer based systems to enhance business processes and transparency within Government Institutions in Liberia. One such initiative was the implementation of the Mining Cadastre Information Management System (MCIMS).
Prior to Spatial Dimension’s involvement in the project, an international consultancy had been engaged to design the MCIMS. When the design did not meet the client’s requirement, the contract was terminated. After an extensive global procurement process, Spatial Dimension was awarded the contract to implement the MCIMS based on their FlexiCadastre solution.
“It is wonderful to be acknowledged for the work we did by assisting the Government of Liberia in improving their internal capacity for monitoring of the all important mining sector. Because of the time the Client lost in the initial design phases of the project, when Spatial Dimension was finally contracted to implement FlexiCadastre, there was very limited time to commission and train users on the MCIMS prior to the closure of the GEMAP project. Because of FlexiCadastre’s advanced functionality and highly configurable business process logic, these timeframes were easily achievable. I believe this would not have been possible with any other solution,” said Bill Feast, the Managing Director of Spatial Dimension.
The full GEMAP video is available on the GEMAP website.
