Design, Development, Implementation, Certification and Auditing of a combined Quality & Administrative Proficiency System (“SDEP”), internally developed, in an EU co-funded ICT organization of the Greek general government

As an introduction to the paper, after a short commentary on the Congress’ theme: “Is quality a mindset or a philosophy?”, the EU co-funded ICT Greek general government (broad public sector) organization: Information Society S.A., as well as its immediate, greek, and broader, european, operational environments, and the role the organization plays in them, are briefly presented. Information Society S.A., founded in 2001 and carrying the business name distinctive title: KtP A.E., is a leading (private law and non-profit) organization in Project Management of ICT (Information & Communication Technology) projects for the Greek government. Within the context of the “National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF)” 2007 - 2013 (public works, public supply contracts and public service contracts), KtP A.E. is currently: (a) a beneficiary of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF), for the Operational Programs: “Digital Convergence” and “Administrative Reform 2007 - 2013” mainly, and (b) an Intermediate Managing Authority for Digital Convergence State Aided Projects of private sector enterprises.

In its first part, the paper presents the theoretical basis used in designing and developing the organization’s combined Quality & Administrative Proficiency System (called “SDEP”, from its abbreviated greek title). This basis consists mainly of: (a) the principles, philosophy, logic and characteristics of the HIMS© (HyperIntegrative Management System) Model, developed by the author, more than a decade ago, and (b) the requirements of the standards: ELOT (Hellenic Organization for Standardization) national standard 1429: “Managerial capability of organizations implementing projects of public interest” (with relevant Application Guides) and ISO 9001 - Quality Management System Requirements”.

In the second part of the paper, the main phases, steps, tasks and activities regarding the design, development, implementation, certification and auditing of KtP A.E.’s SDEP, are presented.

The paper’s third part is, in essence, a commentary on the benefits, particularities, advantages and disadvantages, as well as the lessons learned, regarding the design, development, implementation, certification and auditing of KtP A.E.’s combined Quality & Administrative Proficiency System (SDEP).

Finally, the paper concludes with a short commentary on the linkage of KtP A.E.’s role, function and SDEP with the general mindset and philosophy regarding quality in the broad greek public administration sector
