In order to fully mainstream EITI, all government institutions that are managing extractives revenue must have digitalized their processes, and the systems must be integrated. RDF Fusion allows government systems to share data automatically by API and intermediary databases. Govin allows companies to submit their declarations online. The risk indicators in Fusion may also be used to automate the validation process, that will no longer be required if setup correctly.
Webinar Report – Systems for EITI Mainstreaming
Summary of RDF webinar 24 March 2021 with 100 participants from 30 countries.
Senegal presented how all key government systems are now integrated using the RDF Fusion system, and companies are reporting online using GovIn. This has reduced the time it tasked to do EITI validation and increased the quality, even automated parts of the audit using the Fusion risk management functions. Guinea presented how they have started using Fusion and are recently introducing the GovIn platform. Participants were also introduced to the Working Group of Extractives Audits, under the INTOSAI network of Auditor-General Offices who explained the benefits of data integration and systems audit.
