The local government housing accounting and circulation system BRIDZIS is a desktop system for computerised support to the housing solutions process in the local government.
BRIDZIS is used in their work in almost 30 local governments including The Rīga City Local Government.
- To manage the aid register, i.e. to register applications from people asking to solve housing matters and to maintain the queues of providing aid;
- To maintain current the list of free spaces in order to offer them to the persons registered in the queue;
- To register lease agreements entered into by the local government and to control that they are up-to-date.
In the system, the following data can be retrieved:
- Real Property State Cadastre IS, State Address Register IS data on residential houses and apartments in them;
- Basic personal data from the Population Register;
- Data on person’s pension from the State Social Insurance Agency;
- Data on person’s disability from the State Medical Commission for the Assessment of Health Condition and Working Ability;
- Data on person’s current and former properties from the State Single Computerised Land Register;
- Data on person’s social status and received benefits from the Single Local Governments System SOPA.
Retrieving the current data from the primary source systems makes it possible to save time not having to fill these data in repeatedly, to fully assess the person’s right to receive the local government’s aid in solving housing matters and reduces to the minimum a risk of entering incorrect data.
All the data from BRIDZIS are mutually linked and are not duplicated, which makes it possible to find a suitable free housing in the local government for a person who wants to lease an apartment conveniently and with a good overview and register the made lease agreement. This universal approach makes it possible for all the local government’s specialists involved in the housing matters solving process to work with one system and single data not wasting time on data checks in other systems and reducing the flow of paper documents in the local government and reducing the administrative burden on the local government’s residents.
