Open beta testing of the updated functionality of the user account in DREAM has begun – how to join

DREAM is a government electronic ecosystem that will provide a single digital route for all recovery projects. That is, all recovery projects, their financing, costs, contractors, donors, beneficiaries, etc. will be stored in one place online and will be available for public monitoring.

In order to test the updated functions of the system, as well as to teach community representatives how to use all the DREAM tools, beta testing is ongoing, and from now on, all interested organizations can join.

Who has already participated in beta testing?

By mid-October, more than 150 administrations had participated in beta testing, which was closed at the time. Among them are the State Agency for Reconstruction and Development of the Infrastructure of Ukraine and all its regional services, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Culture, the KMDA, UNDP, JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia”, as well as 19 OVAs.

In addition to the beta testing itself, offline meetings and webinars were held with the participants, separate chats were held with local self-government bodies, and a news chat “DREAM info” was created.

Following the results of the closed beta testing stages, instructions and recommendations for the use of the DREAM ecosystem for local self-government bodies have already been developed, separate support and communication channels have been created, meetings and presentations are planned in the regions with the participation of the DREAM Project Office and partner organizations.

What’s next?

Beta testing continues and is open to everyone from November 14 – any community, regional and city administration, state enterprise, institution or organization can join. To do this, you need to submit an application by filling out a Google form.

The updated functionality structures the map of each project in accordance with international standards and integrates the stages and issues important to potential donors and investors of restoration. For example, substantiating the urgency of the need, comparing alternative technical solutions and substantiating the choice of solution for implementation, the presence of the project in strategic documents, the presence of the results of a socio-ecological assessment and approaches to its implementation, the presence of documentation for the land plot. In addition, the new functionality integrates indicators that will be critical for project prioritization.

After the completion of beta testing, the official launch of the updated functionality will take place. Follow DREAM and BRDO official channels for the latest information.

The updated DREAM user account is being implemented as a pilot implementation of the low-code platform of a sectoral departmental project management system for the Digital Restoration Ecosystem for Accountable Management (DREAM). The updated platform will provide project initiators with convenient access to work with the DREAM ecosystem, and will also ensure the collection of project data in accordance with the global Open Contracting Data Standard. In addition, updating the platform will help speed up the creation of projects and project ideas, as well as increase the quality of their preparation.

Development of a low-code platform of a sectoral departmental project management system (second-level system) and its pilot implementation for the Digital Restoration Ecosystem for Accountable Management (DREAM) is carried out by Better Regulation Delivery Office supported by Project “Effective Governance through GovTech and Transparency in Ukraine” implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Government of Germany.
