At the request of the Southern Mediterranean partner countries, the EU-funded project MEDSTAT IV will organise a training course on Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM). The GSBPM describes and defines the set of business processes needed to produce official statistics. It provides a standard framework and harmonised terminology to help statistical organisations to modernise their statistical production processes, as well as to share methods and components.

The objective of the course is not to train on the concepts but rather to accompany the participants in applying the model on various statistical operations.

The training course will thus be constructed on two phases:

  • A distance learning phase during which the participants will be given access to the existing material regarding GSBPM and will be asked to review it. One webinar will then be organised to test the knowledge of the participants, to answer questions they may still have on the theoretical and conceptual foundations of the model and to fine-tune the agenda of the face-to-face session
  • A face-to-face session during which practical cases will be presented and discussed. The participants will be put in “real conditions” for the practical application of the model to various and concrete statistical operations. This phase will take place in Rome on July 25-27, 2017.

The training also aims at developing internal capacities in the National Statistical Institutes to multiply the skills acquired and to go towards a generalised use and internalisation of the GSBPM within the National Statistical Systems of the partner countries.

The MEDSTAT IV project provides expertise and technical support to promote the harmonisation of statistics in line with EU and international standards in 6 domains: business register and business, trade and balance of payments, energy, labour market, migration and transport. It follows on the previous phase implemented over the period 2010-2013.
