IFC Request for Proposal: Automation of Name Search at the Office of the Administrator Registrar General
IFC, in partnership with the GoSL, wishes to contract the services of a reputable software and computing firm that would be able to design and pilot a database for the automation of the name search process at the OARG by June 9th 2010. Since 2007, OARG has streamlined the process of registering a business in Sierra Leone. At present, searching for existing names is conducted manually, adding to increase the time it takes to complete the business registration process. Automation of the process will make the process more efficient. It is intended that this project will also have a positive effect on Sierra Leone’s placing in the World Bank’s Doing Business rankings this year.
