The Framework Working Contract (FWC) number OC/EFSA/ALPHA/2018/01 between the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the contracting authority, and the SIGMA consortium, the contractor, is in force from 23 May 2018 until 22 May 2021. The subject matter of the FWC is the provision of technical support to improve and automatize the collection and reporting to EFSA by the European Union (EU) Member States of data on animal disease outbreaks and surveillance (SIGMA). The contracting authority orders services by sending the contractor Order Forms, which include the technical specifications for the elaboration of the deliverables. In the context of the FWC, the Order Form number 2 (OF2) was signed on the 3rd of August 2018.

The CSF & ASF wild boar surveillance database was developed as a tool to integrate ASF data collection, reporting and analysis. The features of this web database aim at supporting the Member States to manage, evaluate and control disease outbreaks in the wild boar population. This report describes the features of the database including the database structure and the tools to evaluate and visualize its content. Several screenshots were included to illustrate the diversity of possible analyses. The technical part of the document details the components and software used on the server (backend) and client side (frontend). Furthermore, the report illustrates the procedures for data import from the Member States and gives an outlook on the possible data flow and data exchange strategies between the CSF & ASF wild boar surveillance database and the EFSA data warehouse.
