The Federal Service for Accreditation became one of the winners at the Open Government spring contest of the best “going public” practices. Its project “PROFSA: Electronic Platform for Internal and External Communication” got the nomination “For a good start”. Sergey Migin, Deputy Head of the Federal Service for Accreditation, was the one to receive the certificate which was handed over by Mikhail Abyzov, Chairman of the Jury.
PROFSA was designed by the Federal Service for Accreditation in November 2017. It was deemed to become a tool that would arrange communication between the experts of the national accreditation system, and the representatives of business community who would enjoy the opportunity to take part in the decision-making process of the Service.
PROFSA allows its users to participate in project-making through a set of platform tools (chats, audio and video calls, votes, and others), to process documents together, to arrange relevant tasks, to computerize and to simplify a number of day-to-day activities of the Service. Today PROFSA is joined by more than 900 users, 65% of which are side experts. 54 projects PROFSA (half of which was powered by professionals) have already been implemented.
The use of PROFSA has changed the approach to project management and the decision-making environment of the Service. The venue has become an everyday tool and has offered a set of new opportunities for solving a wide range of tasks that underlie the development of the national accreditation system.
