IMSMA contains information on Agency activities, collected in full accordance with operational SOPs and has an ability to meet other information needs of mine action management. IMSMA reflects corresponding information on the maps through the GIS functionality. IMSMA has been developed by GICHD (Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining) as the software based data management tool for use in Mine Action Center (MAC) level that improves capabilities for decision-making, coordination and information policy related to humanitarian mine action. New reports allowed counting of the contribution of various clearance methods (Manual clearance, Mine Detecting Dogs and Mechanical Demining Machines support, UXO clearance), thoroughly follow-up disposal of explosive devices, and either in-situ or in demolition area. Technical Survey, Progress, Clearance and Completion Reports have been reworked as well to reflect all the features of current operations. The Dangerous Area Report has been used to develop Single UXO Report.       

The quality of data gathered is being ensured through regular and systematic checks within the set of the management controls at each stage of reporting.

It allowed eradicating root causes of non-performances, answers the question how the information processes met the ANAMA requirements, analyze personnel qualification and training needs within the information quality assurance system measured and built on facts.
