The purpose of the consultancy is to support monitoring and evaluation processes of the Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG) Project via more systematised collection and analysis of data on implementation of capacity building project activities. In this regard, one Participants Database Developer (hereinafter the Consultant) will be engaged.
The consultancy objective is to provide MEG Project with Participants Database, designed and developed to allow prompt and easy monitoring of participation of stakeholders and beneficiaries at different capacity building events organized within the MEG Project. More concretely, the Consultant will design and develop MEG Participants Database, in appropriate technology, so as to provide best possible solution for easy, fast and accurate data entry and data analysis to enable quality overall monitoring, evaluation and reporting of this aspect of the MEG Project.
Financed and supported by the Government of Switzerland, and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG) Project is a newly-launched 12-year intervention in the domain of local governance in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Project’s overall goal is defined as follows: Local governments, assigned with appropriate competences and finances, have improved their democratic governance, apply sound public policy and performance management systems, and provide public services in an inclusive, effective and efficient manner, particularly those related to economic and environmental sectors.
The expected concrete improvements the Project will contribute to are clustered in three outcomes, as follows:
The Project’s territorial focus is on the North-West part of the country (including Una-Sana Canton and Prijedor region) and the North-East region (the wider Doboj-Tuzla area), covering 18 partner local governments: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Doboj, Gracanica, Gradacac, Gradiška, Kalesija, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Prnjavor, Sanski Most, Tešanj, Teslic, Tuzla, Velika Kladuša and Žepce.
The Project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Development, Entrepreneurship and Crafts of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the FBiH Ministry of Agriculture, Water Management and Forestry, the Ministry for Administration and Local Self-Government of Republika Srpska (RS), the RS Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management and both entity Associations of Municipalities and Cities (AMCs).
During the first 9 months of 2017, MEG Project registered over 2,000 participants trained/consulted at approximately 200 different capacity building events. In order to collect and analyse data on participants accurately, timely and efficiently, the MEG Project recognized the need to develop a more comprehensive, stable and reliable Participants Database.
The Consultant, in close cooperation with the Project team, will design and develop a user-friendly, stable and reliable Participants Database, which will allow fast and accurate data entry and analysis on several predetermined conditions and relations, and will import data from the current Project’s Excel tool into the newly developed database. More concretely, the Consultant will have following key tasks and deliverables:
The database will be a stand-alone data-entry and analysis solution for information that can be recalled and referenced across multiple places. The Consultant is expected to recommend the underlying technology of the database (Excel, Access or different) taking into consideration the quantity of data that it should handle and that the database needs to be based on either MS Office applications or open source solutions.
It is expected that the consultant will visit the MEG project premises in Sarajevo at least 2 times during the assignment (for briefing and joint analysis at the beginning of the assignment and for the training at the end of the assignment), however, if necessary entire communication can be carried out by means of skype, emails or telephone.
The estimated level of effort for this task is 6 days during January, 2018.
