BCEAO - Central Bank of West African States RTGS system

In June 2004 CMA’s RTGS system had been launched into operation at the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) in accordance with the project schedule. Hardware procurement order for the project had been completed by the Hewlett-Packard Company. CMA’s responsibility within the project was delivery and installation of the application software. The project had started in June 2003, since then CMA developed and installed payment system and conducted educational training of the Central Bank staff in its headquarters and its branch offices in eight west African countries: Senegal, Mali, Togo, Niger, Ivory Coast, Guinea Bissau, Burkina Faso and Benin.

The system has contributed greatly to the integration of the economies of BCEAO member states during 10 years of smooth operation. Several hardware and software upgrades were performed during the system live operation by joint efforts of CMA and BCEAO. Now the system is running on new bank-wide virtual server environment. In 2014 the RTGS was interfaced with BCEAO CSD system (also installed by CMA) according to DvP principles.

Status: The system went into live operation in June 2004 according to the project schedule
