RFP - Data Software Consultant

World Renew is the international development and disaster response agency of the Christian Reformed Church in North America with home offices in Burlington, Ontario (Canada) and Grand Rapids, MI (U.S.A.). World Renew builds the capacity of local NGOs and community-based organizations to improve food security, livelihoods, nutrition and health for poor households in 28 countries throughout Asia, Africa, and the Americas. World Renew also responds to disasters delivering lifesaving aid in complex humanitarian disasters.

Background

World Renew uses Results-Based Management for program management (planning and monitoring) and activity-based budgets for financial management. The software currently used has become unreliable, dated, and presents user challenges that now requires World Renew to look for a system which better uses our data for program analysis, storytelling, and grants management. Today’s program monitoring and reporting software has advanced so that it can be used for improved program management and cross-organizational communication regarding planning, monitoring, reporting on and funding our programs.

Key Consultancy Objective

World Renew seeks to engage an independent consultant to provide expertise in program data management systems. The consultant will research off-the-shelf software systems that fit with the criteria identified (see below) and deliver recommendations on software packages that can support management systems within World Renew, including program and grant management.

Consultancy Requirements

The consultant needs to have knowledge of international development program management systems and existing software options for tracking community development programs and finances along with grant management. Understanding of community development programs and program design including performance management framework is needed. Additionally, the consultant needs to have experience assisting organizations to find software for international community development programs.
