Nirjhar Bera spent the summer in Palau working with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). With a limited budget and time constraints, he was able to develop a sustainable Financial Intelligence Unit Database (F.I.N.D.) application for financial intelligence gathering and analysis which he custom designed to fulfill requirements of Palau’s FIU. With this database, the FIU can “store financial transaction data and retrieve it very quickly as well as track patterns in suspect activity.” Ultimately, it assists the country in combatting money laundering and terrorist financing.
