Dog database contract goes to Equinox

Dog database contract goes to Equinox

SOME may say it’s gone to the dogs, but IT services company Equinox has the bone between its teeth with a $350,000 contract.

The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) has contracted Equinox to build a national database that will hold information on 500,000 dogs as required by the Dog Control Amendment Act 2004.

It’s expected the system will be ready for local authority testing from June this year, with it going live from May 1, 2006.

Equinox service delivery manager Paul Ramsay says the main complexities of the design are around interfacing and data.

“Naturally we’re very pleased to have won the contract. While the contract is to design and build the database there are future possibilities, such as hosting the service,” he says.

Ramsay says the DIA has identified seve-ral types of data that need to be contained within the database, such as the names and addresses of owners and their dogs and details of implanted microchips in canines.

Under the act, dogs registered after July 6, 2006 will be required to be microchipped, along with dog breeds classified as dangerous or menacing, since 2003.
