On 19 December 2012, Asseco Poland and the Ministry of Finance concluded a contract worth PLN 32.6 million for the construction, maintenance and further development of the ZEFIR2 system. The agreement shall remain in effect till 2021 and will be implemented in cooperation with the Customs Chamber in Cracow.
The ZEFIR2 system, i.e. the Integrated Tariff Collection and EU/Budget Settlements System, will become one of the components of the Customs Administration Information System (CAIS). It will be created as part of the implementation of "e-Customs Programme", financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the state budget under the Operational Programme Innovative Economy 2007-2013 "Subsidies for innovations".
The ZEFIR2 system will be the successor to the presently applied ZEFIR solution that provides comprehensive support for all processes related to finance and accounting of the Customs Administration. The system will be replaced in order to introduce a new quality of service by using new technologies that did not yet exist when the original ZEFIR system was developed, in the late 20th century.
The ZEFIR2 system architecture will match the standards of the IT environment at the Customs Administration (CAIS). ZEFIR2 will be equipped with necessary mechanisms and standards to ensure its full compatibility with other software components of CAIS, including PDR, OSOZ2, ISZTAR4, SZPROT, CELINA/AIS, ZISAR, HERMES2, ECIP / SEAP PL, and TREZOR solutions.
The ZEFIR2 system will feature modular structure, standardized cooperation with external IT systems and users, as well as standardized access to the source data. ZEFIR2 will enable flexible construction of process rules, defining of document structures, as well as consolidation of reports for reporting purposes.
