Management Information System (MIS) Assistant: ACDI/VOCA

Management Information System (MIS) Assistant

ACDI/VOCA and its collaborating partners, including Project Concern International (PCI), will work to reduce food insecurity in three upazilas in the Khulna division. PROSHAR will apply a long-term approach by leveraging opportunities in a number of value chains based on market analysis, strengthening health systems and empowering communities to prepare and respond to disasters. Additionally, by working with its collaborating partners and in a concentrated environment PROSHAR will achieve broad impact and demonstrate methodologies that can be scaled-up and replicated elsewhere in the country. To inform program decisions and determine results, the establishment of a robust M&E component is an integral part of PROSHAR.

PROSHARE's M&E plan allows the project management team to plan and manage the process of assessing and reporting progress towards achieving its anticipated results and reaching established targets. It will provide ongoing indications of success and challenges of project activities and strategies that will be used by the project team to steer project efforts towards meeting goals.

PROSHAR believes in designing and implementing a robust and sound results-based monitoring and evaluation system. Regular tracking and evaluating of valid, reliable and timely data will contribute to keep the project focused on achieving results and will permit any necessary adjustments in program activities and responses to shocks. Sound information will enable evidence based decision making. In order to accurately count and analyze beneficiary information, all beneficiaries will be given a numerical ID that will be used to track their participation in all trainings. This will enable PROSHAR to determine not only the total number of beneficiaries, but also the number and type of interventions each beneficiary received; it will furthermore ensure that the program is able to identify unique beneficiaries and avoid double counting.

PROSHAR seeks to recruit a Khulna based MIS Assistant to assist the MIS Specialist in his day-to-day work. The MIS Assistant will be the overseer of data which will be input into the PROSHAR MIS database on a daily basis, which will allow for proper records management and provide data and various reports for better management.
