IOM Nigeria, funded by several international donor communities is presently supporting the Government of Nigeria with the process of installation and implementation of a BMIS, named Migration Information Data Analysis System (MIDAS), which was developed by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in 2009. Currently, Nigeria has MIDAS installed and is operational at 5 main International Airports, 3 seaports, 13 land borders, 3 NIS State Commands and NIS Headquarters creating a data/system architecture under the control of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS). The MIDAS systems generate a high volume of personal data that falls under the property of the Government of Nigeria.

An important aspect of this program will be to reinforce host countries to adequately frame the data life cycle management, to ensure the efficiency of the use and the added value of the BMIS. Although digitizing information and databases is a very efficient way of handling large amounts of information, it also opens that information up to the threat of being misused or used outside of the system, since it is a very new tool for Nigeria. Therefore, it is crucial that administrators in charge of systems handling personal data of people are capable of protecting that information.

To initiate and reinforce the operationalization of legal and institutional tools and mechanisms in Nigeria, and to frame the potential benefit and advantages brought about through the collection of biometric data by the Government (most notably the Nigeria Immigration Service – NIS), IOM is seeking a qualified consultant to support the process of the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on the required interagency operational cooperation on the use of the data that is acquired/generated by MIDAS. This SOPs will be designed to set out the key stages of implementing data protection and use by design and default in respect of all border security activities which involve the collection and processing of personal data and thus support the implementation of the data protection policy and the creation of future platform for interagency cooperation.

Adherence to this Procedure will provide evidence that an appropriate risk assessment of data protection compliance and security certification can be undertaken, and ensures that consideration has been given to the data protection implications of any activity and the application of all relevant data protection principles before personal data processing takes place..
