An important step towards the implementation of the new program “Save” was announced today, admittedly in a … special way! In particular, ETEAN and the Ministry of Finance, and in particular the General Secretariat for Information Systems, announced the signing of a Cooperation Protocol on the interconnection of their information systems and the further use of any kind of electronic services offered by the GSIS to its stakeholders public by ETEAN.
What is admittedly original and particular is that the announcement completely lacks both the reference to the new “save” and any other specific program. However, according to greenagenda’s secure information, the new “save” was the main factor that spurred this cooperation between ETEAN and GSIS.
Applications will be submitted electronically and monitored throughout, and from there the whole process of the program will be carried out as the Ministry of Environment and Energy seeks to reduce bureaucracy.
The new platform, that is, the “I save a resident” information system, will be linked to the Taxisnet system. This will result in the crossing of elements of the property and of the owner’s income. Someone will enter the platform with the taxi codes.
It is also noted that the RIS has been working for many years with the GSIS on the connectivity and interoperability of the systems, so exoikonomisi.ypeka.gr is expected to run the new “save”, to work in the same way .
We also remind you that, as Greenagenda presented in detail, ETEAN has invited banks and financial institutions to express interest in working with them for those who want to move on to the new “save” with bank financing – which this time it will not be mandatory.
The critical link of the chain, which was lacking until now in the whole process that was planned, was the ETEAN-GSIS cooperation, since both the RIS and in particular the Renewable Energy Sector NSRF, the Energy Sector, as the design and and the Ministry of Economy and Development, as the supervisory authority of the funding body, mainly ESAVE, is cooperating, through information systems already with the GSIS, and the banks have a connection with the GSIS for all the applications they need and the items Funds to allow the Ministry.
However, both the GSAC and ETEAN chose not to refer to specific programs in the Communication. In particular, the announcement states that co-operation is expected to have two very positive results, which were standing demands of businesses and households that deal with ETEAN:
Increasing efficiency and reducing the cost of providing ETEAN programs to businesses as well as individuals.
According to the Communication, these goals are achieved by linking businesses with their financial data in a very positive and productive way. These data will be used not for tax purposes but instead for inclusion in entrepreneurship support programs and funding actions. Also, this collaboration will bring about significant economies of scale, since automation of information systems communication will result in a reduction / saving of time consumed in the exchange of documents, magnetic media and messages.
Reducing the time and costs of confirming and crossing financial data, as well as improving their quality, is expected, in addition to financial gain, to lead to an increase in the number of applications concerning the participation of companies in ETEAN programs.
More specifically, according to the Protocol, cooperation between the two institutions is briefly expanded into the following areas, with the corresponding significant benefits for businesses and individuals:
Improving the services offered to the companies that are part of the ETEAN programs, such as the cross-referencing of applications for access and the access to information of the Ministry of Finance via web services.
Resource saving available from GGSP & DY the appropriate computing infrastructure (G-cloud clouds, servers, memory, storage, network, etc.) to meet the needs of these services.
Transfer of know-how from GSGS & DP in the field of the interoperability of information systems, aiming at the development of client applications, initially and not restrictively, by the web services: a) Authentication of user data b) Pumping of natural and non-physical identification data c) Cross
