Job Summary:

The purpose of this Consultancy is to develop an online mobile data collection (MDC) and analysis system for Afghanaid to collect Monitoring and Evaluation data using mobile technology. Afghanaid believes that M&E is an essential element of every programme as it provides a way to assess the progress of the project in achieving its goals and objectives and informing key stakeholders and programme/project managers about the results. The MDC will ensure that the resulting M&E system can collect high quality data, analyse that data and produce project information and supporting evidence for decision-makers and stakeholders.

The functional M&E system is required to provide the strategic information needed to make good decisions for managing and improving programme quality and delivery, and planning programmes better. It also generates evidence to satisfy accountability requirements.
