Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The National Social Protection Council (NSPC) leads the Royal Government of Cambodia’s (RGC) efforts to build a social protection system as a tool to reduce poverty, vulnerability, and inequality, contributing to the development of human resources and economic growth. The General Secretariat for the NSPC (GS-NSPC) is responsible for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of National Social Protection Policy to ensure transparency and accountability, efficiency and consistency. HP+ is supporting the GS-NSPC to develop and implement a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system. To support this work, HP+ is soliciting bids for a deliverables-based contract to build the M&E operating system in two phases. The first phase will develop the data entry/data base system. The second phase, designed as an optional cost extension, will develop the dashboards and report system.
The main purpose of developing the monitoring and evaluation system is to facilitate the effective and efficient monitoring and evaluation of the RGC’s social protection investments and ensure the achievement of the National Social Protection Policy Goals.
The M&E system will serve as a management tool for the GS-NSPC to effectively fulfill its mandated M&E functions. The system will facilitate the collection, analysis, and use of routine service/beneficiary statistics, budget and expenditure data, and payment and administrative statistics to enable comparative analysis and calculation of the administration-to-benefit ratio, and cost-per-beneficiary by social program component and social protection scheme. This will enable the progress tracking toward achieving goals and inform management decision-making. The system will organize social protection input, output, outcome, principle, and impact indicators to measure progress on poverty, vulnerability, and inequality reduction. The system will facilitate performance tracking through easy online access and data entry from the line-ministries. The record of each indicator will be maintained. As indicators are specific to line-Ministries/reporting units, data entry will be customized. This system will be integrated with the current web-based system of the GS-NSPC.
The contractor will design and develop a software package that is in line with the requirements indicated with the following modules:
