AlmavivA and TIM, with Agriconsulting, have won the tender for the Controlled Waste Tracking System (Sistema di controllo della tracciabilità dei rifiuti - SISTRI) called by Consip on behalf of the Ministry of the Environment and for the Protection of the Land and Sea. The agreement, for a maximum value of 260 million euros, provides them with a license for five years, extendible to seven, to run the System that allows the computerized tracking of special waste at national level and urban waste in the Campania Region.
The activities covered by the license include the tracking of the entire waste life cycle through loading and unloading records, handling cards (producer and transporter) and route registration, by performing services that are both operational – also relating to the management of contributions, user support and information availability – and instrumental, including activities such as take over by the system, infrastructure management, maintenance, evolution of the information system and caring.
The innovative project proposal presented by the temporary grouping of companies comprised of AlmavivA, TIM, and Agriconsulting has obtained the top technical score and is characterized by a simple and fast system: the use of interfaces that are easy to access via smartphones and apps will provide a better user experience also in order to expand the services’ user base, estimated to have a potential market of 600,000 operators.
The introduction of the SISTRI has enabled the start of the shift from a paper system to a solution based on technological advances, promoting innovative and a more effective and real time management of a complex and structured process that covers the entire waste business. The system provides institutions with support in processes concerning regulatory simplification, increasing the efficiency of government offices and the reduction of administrative charges burdening companies, with many advantages in terms of legality, prevention, transparency, efficiency and modernisation. Heightened proper waste management will also bring benefits to companies both in terms of environmental sustainability and by encouraging those who operate in compliance with the rules.
As part of the grouping, AlmavivA has taken on the management and development of applications for the computerisation of compliances and the complete dematerialisation of the system, which it will also achieve by adopting its own platform for Big Data Analytics & Business Intelligence solutions.
TIM will implement and manage the Cloud Computing services offered in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) mode, making use of its national Data Centres, capable of ensuring high standards of reliability, scalability and IT security. It will also provide all Certification Authority services, ensuring integration and evolution as part of the SPID system for digital identity. Finally, TIM will manage all the vehicle tracking services using its expertise and that of the subsidiary Way S.p.A.
Agriconsulting will develop specialized application solutions.
“With the new SISTRI we are putting innovation at the service of change. We wish to combine simplification and efficiency with attention to the growth of circular economy, creating a market for recyclable materials, said Antonio Amati, General Manager of the IT department at AlmavivA. The creation of a Marketplace is in fact planned, a place where supply and demand can merge, capable of increasing the reuse of waste which is transformed into raw material”.
“This initiative confirms TIM's role as a technological partner of Public Administration and the constant commitment to the digitization of Italy, deploying enabling infrastructure and platforms to support projects that have a strong impact on growth and development, like SISTRI, capable of encouraging greater environmental sustainability to benefit citizens and businesses,” stated Lorenzo Forina, Head of Business & Top Clients at TIM.
