Feasibility Study and Detailed Engineering Design for Three OSBPs along the Northern Corridor
The project aimed to help reduce the number of stops incurred in a cross border trade transaction by combining the activities of both countries’ border organizations at a single location in each direction and to increase the effectiveness of cross border controls through greater data sharing and cooperation.
The project was aimed at bringing a situation where ICT will enable connectivity between the border posts to enable effective communication among officers once they are operating. ICT will enable data sharing among agencies so data on shipments or persons can be entered once and used by all relevant agencies at the border.
This proposal proposes a community based ICT system to facilitate information exchange among various border operators for:
- Checking the legality of persons entering or leaving the country
- Detecting and interdicting use of fraudulent documents entering or leaving the country
- Checking possessions of person
- Preventing smuggling of goods
- Monitoring of frontier borders
- Preventing and stopping illegal crossing of the border
- Inspecting plants and animals
- Preventing entry of hazardous diseases or chemicals
- Checking goods entering or exiting the country for collection of revenues
- Preventing and interdicting illicit trade, stolen goods, drugs, weapons, explosives, and dangerous substances
- Collect and maximize revenue, payable to the taxation department through the treasury, the ministry of finance or the central (national) bank
- Collect trade statistics so as to compile a database on which to base national economic planning.
