The OSCE has a comprehensive approach to security that encompasses politico-military, economic and environmental, and human aspects. It therefore addresses a wide range of security-related concerns, including arms control, confidence- and security-building measures, human rights, combating human trafficking, national minorities, democratization, policing strategies, counter-terrorism and economic and environmental activities. All 57 participating States enjoy equal status, and decisions are taken by consensus on a politically, but not legally binding basis.
The OSCE Secretariat in Vienna assists the Chairmanship in its activities, and provides operational and administrative support to the field operations, and, as appropriate, to other institutions.
The Department of Management and Finance (DMF) is responsible for managing the material and financial resources of the Organization. The objective of DMF is to provide efficient and effective management of non-staff resources in support of OSCE programmatic activities. It provides policy guidance on the management of OSCE financial and material resources and develops and maintains OSCE Financial Regulations and Rules and Financial Administrative Instructions. DMF consists of Budget and Finance Services, Mission Support Section, Information and Communication Technology Section and the Information Security and Co-ordination Unit.
Information and Communications Technology Services (ICTS) ensures efficient, available, and cost-effective management, operation and utilisation of Information Technology (IT) in support of the core business of the OSCE. This comprises activities associated with co-ordination, operation, management, development and implementation of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) supported projects and infrastructure.
The OSCE Secretariat is starting two major, related IT projects in 2020:
1. Oracle EBS 12.2 Upgrade: this project will upgrade the OSCE's Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) service from version 12.1.3 to version 12.2. The OSCE's EBS service is hosted and managed by the UN International Computing Centre (UNICC) in Geneva. EBS 12.1.3 will be discontinued by Oracle in December 2021, and the upgrade project is planned to complete by Q2 2021 latest.
2. Oracle PBCS Implementation: this project will implement the Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Solution (PBCS, also known as Hyperion Budgeting), including integration with EBS. The OSCE currently uses the on-premise Oracle Public Sector Budgeting (PSB) EBS module. PSB will be desupported by Oracle in December 2021, and so is being replaced by PBCS. The PBCS implementation is planned to complete by Q4 2020.
These two projects will run in parallel and are dependent upon one another. Both projects will be delivered by OSCE project teams working together with external vendors. In addition to these two major projects, ICTS will also be running several other Oracle EBS-related projects in 2020/21.
