The Enterprise Application Center Vienna (EAC-VN) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) specializes in the development, deployment and support of software applications for use by Member States in a range of UNODC's focus areas.
The goAML software, as well as other products in this family, is part of UNODC's strategic response to crime, particularly serious and organized crime.
Money-laundering and the financing of terrorism are global problems that threaten the security and stability of financial institutions and also lead to undermining economic prosperity. A lot is being done in order to combat money laundering at the global level.
goAML is a UNODC response to combat money-laundering. It is an intelligence analysis system intended to be used by the FIU (Financial Intelligence Unit). FIUs have a big role to play as they have access to financially related information that provides a base for financial investigations. An FIU is responsible for receiving, analysing and processing reports required from financial institutions or person referred to in national anti-money-laundering legislation.
The development of goAML has been partially funded by the European Commission.
