The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity full

CRS Nigeria's SMILE project is a five-year USAID funded program designed to scale up access to basic services for 600,000 vulnerable children and their caregivers. SMILE partners with 50 local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and 55 government agencies to implement this program. Partner institutional capacity strengthening and effective program management is key to successful program implementation. Given the scale and number of partners, there was a need to use of an ICT4D solution to monitor partner capacity strengthening and program management processes. In partnership with Westat (a consortium member on SMILE), CRS developed a web based Project Management Information System (PMIS) for monitoring Institutional capacity strengthening and workplan implementation of SMILE CSO partners and government agencies. The software modules include: The Organizational Capacity Assessment Tool (OCAT), Workplan monitoring, Sub-Recipient Financial Monitoring Tool (SRFMT), Grants management monitoring. For each of the modules, there is a scheduling feature that allows the Software Administrator to schedule partner assessment exercises and upload assessment results. CSOs and government staff subsequently indicate when specific activities on their improvement plans and workplans have been completed. Using the report function it is possible to generate custom reports on results of assessment exercises, workplan completion rates and trend analysis. The PMIS has helped SMILE to monitor partner capacity improvements and workplan implementation more efficiently
