The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce that, in its continuing support
forthe Government of Romania, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency
(USTDA) has awarded two grantsto improve the government’s use of
information and communication technologies (ICT) to build a stronger
economy. The U.S. Embassy represented USTDA in Romania, facilitating
negotiations with the Romanian Government in developing the scope of
work for both projects.

Today, the U.S. Government and the State Secretary Bogdan Tohaneanu of
the Ministry of Internal Affairs signed a grant in the amount of
$400,600 for a feasibility study to consolidate the Ministry’s data
centers into a single modern facility.  The proposed data center will
have space available for co-location and disaster recovery services.
The project will promote more effective delivery of services to Romanian
Government entities, businesses and citizens, while simultaneously
yielding substantial cost savings.

This project builds upon an earlier U.S. Government-funded grant for
$288,000, signed on June 27, to develop modern ICT solutions to
streamline legislative processes in Romania.  Working with State
Secretary Radu Puchiu of the General Secretariat, the program will
determine the feasibility of implementing a modern data management
system. By increasing operational efficiency, this project will improve
the organization of all documentation and correspondence pertaining to
the legislative processes, enhancing information security and data
recovery capabilities while also increasing transparency.

“These projects are priorities for the Government of Romania due to
their potential to improve data management and enhance government
efficiency,” said USTDA Regional Director Carl B. Kress.  “We are
pleased to connect the Government of Romania with U.S. private sector
expertise in order to develop Romania’s ICT infrastructure.”
