Save the Children Cambodia || The NOURISH Project
 “Development of the Mobile Application and Structural Development Support for Monthly Monitoring Data Collection”
Terms of References
 I. Background
In June 2014, USAID Cambodia awarded a five-year integrated nutrition, hygiene and sanitation project known as NOURISH. Led by Save the Children, NOURISH is implemented in close collaboration with the host-country government, two international non-government organizations—The Manoff Group and SNV Netherlands Development Organization (SNV) —and three local NGO-partners—Partners in Compassion, Operations Enfants du Cambodge, and Wathnakpheap.

With funding from USAID and the U.S. Presidential Initiative Feed the Future, NOURISH works to assist the Royal Government of Cambodia in accelerating stunting reduction by focusing on key multi-sectoral determinants of chronic malnutrition in Cambodia. From the beginning of the project implementation NOURISH developed project Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (MEP) that serves as a central tool for managing and documenting project’s performance. It enables timely and consistent collection of comparable performance data in order to make informed program management decisions. The paper-based system is currently in place with the help of numerous English-Khmer data collection forms filled out by over 30 project field (District Officers and WASH Officers) staff spread out across three Cambodian provinces. Data is reviewed by (Senior) Program Officer or Technical Advisors for quality before it is released to the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) unit. The data and information from these forms is then entered into a computer-based MIS designed by NOURISH staff in Access and is managed by M&E unit that generates project reports. Project MIS is password protected, and allows the staff to quickly track and report on program activity to USAID and to monitor progress.

In 2017, NOURISH is planning to switch from paper to smart phones for routine monitoring data collection efforts that will feed directly into NOURISH Access-based MIS. This activity will entail development and field-testing of the user-friendly English-Khmer data entry application for Smart phones (i-SO and Androids) linked to the existing NOURISH MIS and introduction of new data collection efforts in select communes as a pilot. Therefore, Save the Children is now looking for a qualified Cambodian or US-based firm to develop mobile application and provide structural development support for routine monitoring data collection efforts.
