''go'' Family Products

The Information Technology Service (ITS) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) specializes in the development, deployment and support of software applications for use by Member States in a range of UNODC's programme areas.
The products of the government office "go" family are part of UNODC's strategic response to crime, particularly serious and organized crime.
The ''go'' family includes integrated investigative case management and intelligence analysis tools for Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs), law enforcement, investigative, intelligence, regulatory, prosecution and asset recovery agencies, and for courts and other government agencies involved in the criminal justice process. All the software products include multi-faceted integration, and can function as "stand alone" applications or together to form one global system, depending on the needs of the requesting Member State. The application of systems able to interface with each other encourages inter-agency and cross border cooperation and information sharing at the national, regional and international levels.

 The goAML application is an integrated database, intelligence analysis, workflow and resource management system intended for use by Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) worldwide.

goAML provides a "one stop" FIU-specific solution, and is executed in three steps: data collection, analysis (rule-based analysis, risk-score and profiling) and dissemination (escalate to law enforcement and seek feedback). It provides a facility for the rapid and easy online exchange of information between the FIU, reporting entities, law enforcement and judicial authorities, while ensuring data confidentiality.

The system integrates 14 separate functions into one package. It is the only "off the shelf'' system available to FIUs that includes data collection, data evaluation and clean up, ad-hoc queries and matching, statistical reporting on information/reports received and processed, structured analysis at both the tactical and strategic levels, person/entity/account profiling, rule-based analysis, workflow management, task assignment and tracking, document management with full text search capacity, intelligence file development and management, data acquisition/integration from external sources, integrated charting and diagramming and an intelligence report writer tool.

The goAML system is driven by a security model that specifies the kind of access rights each user has, and which provides an audit trail and log details for every transaction performed by all users. The goAML solution is well suited to both low
and high data volume environments.

Drawing on its many years experience of developing, deploying and maintaining software, hardware and physical infrastructure in diverse environments, the Information Technology Service of UNODC (the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) has developed an ICT and Data Centre Model for Government Agencies (goIDM). goIDM has been developed:

  • to assist Member States to make informed and rational decisions regarding IT infrastructure requirements
  • to provide a practical model for the utilization of well designed and tested infrastructure to allow for efficient and, where necessary, decentralized electronic communications
  • to provide Member States with the capacity to manage all types of information ranging from basic human resources data to highly confidential information and to monitor and manage performance and quality control

goIDM follows the five core values that form the foundation of an ICT infrastructure and Data Centre design philosophy - simplicity, flexibility, scalability, modularity and sanity.

The goIDM model was developed by UNODC with financial assistance of the European Union (EU). It has been deployed in Nigeria, in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Nigerian Judiciary, as part of the UNODC project NGAS08, to support the government of Nigeria's fight in combating economic and financial crime. The model has been successfully implemented in three EFCC sites and, as a result of this, will be further deployed to a total of 17 EFCC and Judicial sites at the federal and state levels.

This model has wide application for almost any type of Government agency. For more information, please consult the goIDM website: http://goidm.unodc.org
