CANCELLATION OF TENDER BECAUSE OF UNSATISFACTORY PARTICIPATION AND FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES IN TERMS OF REFERENCE SINCE PUBLICATION!
The main goal of KfW’s activities in decentralisation in Rwanda is to support the local and national authorities in delivering better services across all of the 30 districts.
The Project Executing Agency (PEA), the Local Administrative Entities Development Agency (LODA) came into existence in 2013 and was set up as a vehicle for funding Local Government development activities in Rwanda. LODA is responsible for the coordination of all development projects undertaken at the local level. Altogether, LODA focuses on local economic development, social protection, capacity building of local administrative entities, and monitoring & evaluation of the implementation process of programmes in Local Governments with the objective of increasing the capacity of decentralised entities as well as reducing extreme poverty in the country.
Funds have been committed by the German Government through KfW Development Bank (Financial Cooperation, FC) to assist LODA (Project Executing Agency, PEA) for the upgrading of an existing Monitoring-, Evaluation and Information System (MEIS) system. The MEIS covers the entire management of all core functions related to planning, procurement and implementation of Local Government infrastructure projects and Social Protection activities.
The principal aim of this consulting assignment consists of a Software Upgrade and Extension, to improve the existing digital solutions currently operated by LODA in order to make the implementation of local infrastructure more efficient in the framework of Local Economic Development (LED) and to improve the facilitation of Social Protection (SP) activities. The local governments put in the information about projects and beneficiaries into the system in order to get the allocated funds approved and give LODA an insight on what projects they are pursuing in the different districts and how many SP payments are to be processed.
After upgrading the existing M&E solution, a data warehouse shall be created that can source data from a M&E system as well as other systems used by local governments in the context of decentralisation. To be able to analyse the data holistically, a respective reporting solution shall be developed by the Consultant. In order to ensure that the funding invested in the infrastructure is optimised, a customised asset management solution shall also be put in place.
