"VEDOP is the Ataturk Dam of Turkish IT sector"
Full-Automation of Tax Offices Project (VEDOP) has been started by CYBERSOFT as a country-level automation project for tax offices for the Revenue Administration of Turkey. The main objective of VEDOP is achieving full automation in and between tax offices by using all aspects of the available technology, in order to provide state-of-art services to taxpayers while sustaining interoperablity between various other public services.
As the largest-budgetted public procurement project in Turkey, VEDOP has been started in December 1998, and ended in May 2009. The project has integrated 326 government offices into a nationwide communication network, allowing citizens and companies to submit their tax returns online, while helping combat the informal economy.
Having achieved full interoperability between components, all three stages of VEDOP has presented a digital bridge between the tax authority and the taxpayers nationwide, thus making a very valuable contribution to the e-government studies in Turkey as a whole.
VEDOP was developed in 3 consecutive stages. Below is the presentation of VEDOP-I.
