The current criminal pre-trial investigation and prosecution system in Ukraine requires big volume of paperwork, which slows down significantly information sharing between the institutions involved in the proceedings as well as third parties. Many European countries have already shifted from paper files to having a comprehensive eCase Management System.

The implementation of an integrated eCase Management system in Ukraine for the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Specialised Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAPO) and investigative judges in the High Anti-Corruption Court (HACC) will contribute significantly to enhancing pre-trial investigation performance and will increase the efficiency of anti-corruption cases under investigation.

The integrated system will enable efficient electronic interaction of detectives, prosecutors, and judges in pre-trial investigation, speed up decision-making, decrease routine travel time, save costs and increase time to be devoted to investigations rather than routine administration.

The eCase management system will be designed and developed to supply with techniques to register and track all case events, enhance record-keeping, reduce delays and case backlogs and provide information to support strategic allocation of time and resources. The eCase MS may also improve the predictability of events, which can ensure accountability, increase public trust, reduce opportunities for corruption and enhance transparency of the Beneficiaries’ administration.

The eCase Management system is supposed to provide extensive functionality for automation of the pre-trial investigation workflow, for instance:

  • Make communications between the detectives, prosecutors and the court in an electronic form;
  • Create / register new or merge existing criminal cases;
  • Assign detectives and prosecutors to  criminal cases, set up investigation and prosecution groups;
  • Document procedural actions, as well as create, review and approve respective procedural documents (protocols, complains etc.);
  • Upload, download and view all the annexes to the procedural documents including scan-copies, photos, audio- and video-records;
  • Enter and modify / update information on the participants of the criminal cases;
  • Plan execution of procedural actions and track status of their delivery, assign and track deadlines to the actions;
  • Perform automated data exchange with external state registers and databases;
  • Segregate and control user access to the system to ensure proper information security in terms of pre-trial investigations.

The goal of the project is to deliver a centralised eCase Management System for the following beneficiaries: the NABU, Specialised Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAPO) and High Anti-Corruption Court (HACC). The scope of the system covers the necessary software, both standard and customised, infrastructure devices, system hardware, ancillary services, training, warranty, maintenance and support. The eCase MS is therefore a complex system, far beyond the boundaries of just a custom application software.

The tender for the eCase implementation was launched on 29 March 2019:

According to the projected timeline, the project of developing and piloting eCase Management system should start in August 2019 and to be completed by April 2020.
