Design, Development, Implementation and Maintenance of the Management Information System for Transport Projects

Aus4Transport program is a facility granted by the Government of Australia via Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to the Government of Vietnam via Ministry of Transport (MOT).

TPMIS will be an online web-based platform developed with open-source technologies. Development will follow an Agile Methodology from its beta version to version 1 and during the commission period of 24 months.

TPMIS for the transport sector - covering 5 sub-sectors: roads, railways, inland waterways, maritime and aviation - will record, monitor, generate and share high-level information at project, package, financial and portfolio levels to support MOT, sub-sector program management, sector management and reporting requirements within. TCQM as the project owner of TPMIS will involve several MOT departments (not limited to): Project Management Units (PMUs), Provincial Departments of Transport (PDOTs), Department of Planning and Investment (DPI), Department of Public Private Partnership (DPPP), Department of Finance (DOF), Information Technology Center (ITC); and MOT Bureaus.
