Implementation of an Internet Services Platform for the Department of Lands and Surveys (DLS Portal) by NetU

10 March, 2015


NetU has been awarded, following an open tender procedure, the implementation of an Internet Portal for the Department of Lands and Surveys of the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Cyprus.

The project includes the implementation of a modern internet platform, which will provide comprehensive and easy access to geographical data through digital services, enabling the direct and horizontal access of all government organizations to these services. The portal will also provide self-service functionality allowing the public as well as the municipalities to interact electronically with the Department of Lands and Surveys for carrying out their transactions.

One of the project goals is the full harmonization of the Republic of Cyprus with the INSPIRE Directive of the European Union. The DLS Portal is expected to serve as the central reference point and as the future central platform for all spatial and other data included in the INSPIRE Directive, enhancing the interoperability between the various government and semi-government organizations.

The contract was signed in December 2014 and the implementation of the system will be completed within 15 months. The contract value is €1.170.433 excluding VAT. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (85%) and by National Funds (15%).
