Design of the registry system for the Namibian office of the Auditor General - a database design process in a developing country
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Sida and the Swedish National Audit Office (RRV) have had a mutual cooperation with the Namibian Office of Auditor General (OAG) since 1994. As part of this cooperation RRV and WM-data have computerised certain routines at OAG. RRV did a feasibility study at OAG, which indicated a demand for a computerised Registry System. We were assigned by WM-data to design that system. We have performed the conceptual, logical and parts of the application design. During the Design Process we have considered the fact that OAG lies in a Developing Country, to improve the future implementation of the system. When we took the assignment we asked ourselves the four questions that follows. What shall the Registry System contain? Which design shall the interface of the Registry System have? What special considerations should be made in the design of the Registry System for an organization in a developing country? Which impediments may we come across, when we design the Registry System for an organization in a developing country? To perform this assignment we have studied the feasibility study, written sources and software. We have also had meetings with our assigners at WM-data and we visited RRV for the purpose of studying their registry routines and to meet one of the authors of the feasibility study in person. We used a database design methodology to support the design of the Registry System’s database. The computerised Registry System will facilitate OAG’s handling of in and outgoing documents in the registry. The design meets the requirements in the feasibility study and the system will be slim with only the basic features. The design is based on OAG’s terminology and organisation. The special considerations that we made during the design process were that we considered the technical environment, the technological infrastructure and the organisational culture. One goal was also to make OAG independent of foreign expertise for maintaining the system.
