Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy at the University of Banja Luka Prof. Brankica Milojevic, PhD, and Director of RS Administration for Geodetic and Property Affairs Bosiljka Predragovic signed an agreement on development of digital database of the Communal Devices Cadastre on 3 March 2020.
The agreement is valued at BAM 780,000, excluding VAT, and is planned to be executed within eight months.
Preradovic said that the Administration has not had a database so far that would include all data related to the utility cadastre, so it was necessary to call for public procurement for its development.
,,Utility cadastre is one of the significant geospatial data that the Administration should have on its geoportal. This means that these data should be in line with the INSPIRE directive, which is mandatory for the EU's geospatial data infrastructure,'' Predragovic said in Banja Luka, after signing the agreement.
She emphasized that it is very important that institutions and public institutions in RS get such agreements that will allow them to finance their scientific research work, scholarships for students, and the development of this field.
According to her, every investor needs to know where the utilities are when performing construction works, and they will get the information from the Administration for Geodetic and Property Affairs.
Predragovic emphasizes that it is important to determine the ownership of these utilities, and emphasizes that the companies that own these utilities can go on the market "not only in terms of their sale and purchase, but also in general of the value of capital they have „.
"Without registering real estate through all our projects, we cannot even have their true value", Predragovic said, adding that this is the first step and expressed hope that the ownership of the utilities will be accurately established in the forthcoming period.
Dean Milojevic, who signed the agreement on behalf of a group of bidders at the Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy of the University of Banja Luka and the Faculty of Technical Sciences of the University of Novi Sad, said that the document is important for these educational institutions and that it constitutes a confirmation of their competence and reference, i.e. that they have highly qualified staff.
She added that this is the result of many years of research conducted by this faculty in the field of geodesy and its specific areas, which require constant education and following of modern information technologies and new methodologies.
As she pointed out, the data of the updated digital cadastre will refer to the territory of 20 administrative municipalities of the Republic of Srpska and will be immediately operational and at the disposal of communal and other institutions in charge of utilities and, in addition to the Administration, will give guidance on how to proceed with all planned activities in the field of communal cadastre and define and archive these data.
