GDMS selected by the Lao government for eCRVS platform hosting
GDMS has been selected by the Ministry of Home Affairs of Laos (MOHA) under a World Bank tender to host the national e-CRVS platform.
The e-CRVS is a comprehensive national civil registration platform equipped to accurately record and evaluate key life events.
Civil registration is the footing of legal identity and rights-based service delivery. A Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system records the details of all major life events, such as births, deaths, marriages, and divorces.
By providing relevant records and data about these life events, e-CRVS will support the effective delivery of essential services and help assess the goals of the government’s social and economic development plan.
“This is a national priority project for Lao PDR and covers important civil registration events such as birth, death, marriages, divorce, migration, and medical certifications for the 7.2 million people living across the country’s 17 provinces, plus our capital, Vientiane.”
“The HERA eCRVS system will help propel Lao PDR into the digital age, benefitting every citizen in the country.”
Madam Kommaly Vilaphanh, Director of the Ministry of Home Affairs Lao PDR
The platform is developed by WCC Group, a leading provider of advanced solutions for government identification/security agencies.
GDMS will leverage two data centers of the Government of Laos to deploy the e-CRVS platform. GDMS’ role is to provide redundant cloud infrastructure as well as value-added services such as container orchestration (Kubernetes), object storage, backup, and disaster management solutions.
