The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) helps the United Nations (UN) and its partners provide peace and security, humanitarian, and development solutions. UNOPS services cover infrastructure, project management, procurement, financial management and human resources.

In response to the request of the Government of Ukraine, UNOPS opened an office in Ukraine in 2017, which provides a broad spectrum of services to the Government and the people of Ukraine. Currently, the office is classified as an Operations Centre, with a portfolio of projects exceeding USD 100 million, in the areas of rule of law, environment, energy efficiency, crisis recovery, good governance, human resources management, procurement, and logistics.

The Support for Rule of Law Reforms in Ukraine (PRAVO Police) is a project funded by the European Union that has the overall objective of supporting the strengthening of the policing, prosecution and civilian governance in Ukraine and to align them with the best European and International practices. On matters of substance, the project relies on the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) to Ukraine.

The Project is partnered with the following national agencies: the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, the National Police of Ukraine (NPU), the Office of the Prosecutor General (OPG), the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI). Activities include providing technical support tailored to the needs of each individual agency, while some interventions address larger scale and cross-cutting issues, including inter-agency cooperation and data exchange. 

One such activity relates to the development and roll-out of a new integrated Electronic Criminal Case Management System (eCMS) – an electronic system to be used for the storage and exchange of data on criminal offences at the pre-trial investigation stage and on judicial proceedings. Its users are the OPG, the NPU, the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), the SBI, the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine, courts and others. An integrated system for the entire chain of Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) with investigative powers, will allow the streamlining of case management within and between stakeholder agencies in the processing and exchange of key case information and documents leading to prosecutions or other procedural conclusions or resolution of cases. This will contribute to more efficient electronic interaction among investigators, prosecutors and judges at the pre-trial investigation stage, speed up the decision-making process, decrease routine administrative processes and reduce costs.

Development of the system should be carried out in close coordination with each relevant agency and take into consideration each agency’s vision of the eCMS, their internal ICT landscape and specific needs (analytics, user interface, performance, etc.) and cybersecurity aspects. The new system will be based on modern information technologies and the best EU practices.

The support from the Project will be in stages. As a starting point, the Project will contribute to the planning of the preparatory stage, which includes development of the action plan on eCMS development and coordination with relevant partners. The role of the OPG in this process will be critical. As an initial step, the OPG will establish the interagency-working group (IWG), and will facilitate its meetings. The IWG will be comprised of all relevant LEAs, courts, other governmental agencies and experts from EUAM and UNOPS. One key task of the IWG is to identify the parameters and functionality of the eCMS, which will meet the expectations of its users and be in line with the best European standards for this type of system (the Concept of eCMS to be approved by IWG). The IWG will agree on the sequencing of actions (development and rollout of eCMS in Ukraine), and on subsequent migration of data from (or interoperability with) the existing Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations (the ‘Register’).

The IWG will identify areas where additional work would be required prior to launching an eCMS system, such as specific options within a fully featured solution that would be acceptable to all relevant stakeholders. The ultimate outcome of IWG meetings would be a jointly agreed solution on how to achieve automation of the entire document flow pertaining to the pre-trial criminal investigation process. The IWG will elaborate on the options to increase the number of future users, as compared to the current Register user base, through providing access to the system for judges and defense attorneys.
