This project is an effort to promote a single portal for all permit applications with the main focus on the design and construction of the system function. The major three research objectives of this project, 1. Producing statistical analytical reports and audit report forms; 2. Enhancing and maintaining data quality, and offering system value-added services; and 3.Conducting maintenance on the information system to ensure normal system operation.
In response to the regulatory needs of environmental agencies, statistical and audit report forms were developed using the integrated data connected last year. The industry, company and commerce registration data gathered through the Commerce Industrial Services Portal of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) were compared against the control status data from the EPA-Unified Identification Code System (EUIC). It was hoped that the auditing and statistical report forms developed could help environmental agencies increase the effectiveness of administrative and pollution control.
Database corrections were carried out, in which addresses and rare/difficult words on the system were sifted through to improve the quality and accuracy of the databases. For value-added services, the project this year focused on digitizing work processes of permits. The system development was completed, and the initial phase promotion was conducted. The EMS was connected to MOEA’s Corporate e-Helpdesk to offer more varied alert services to business users. Digital audio-visual learning materials were created to enable users to learn how to use the system at home and thereby increase their familiarity with the system.
In responding to the server virtualization policy of the Department of Environmental Monitoring & Information Management of EPA, virtualization was performed on the EMS to facilitate server relocation to Chunghwa Telecom’s East 7th Server Room. Routine system maintenance was performed every month and the system was closely monitored to ensure normal operation.
