Request for Expressions of Interest 

Consultancy Service to Develop an Information Management System for the Protected Areas Conservation Trust 

Background: 

In 2018, the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) developed a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework to systematically measure the impacts of its investments. As well, since 2018 PACT adopted a more strategic, results-based approach in how it invests its financial resources which is exemplified in its current Conservation Investment Strategy. The Strategy aims at streamlining interventions towards the achievement of conservation returns on investments (CROIs). The CROIs are dependent on primary and secondary data and in pursuit of a unified Information Management System (IMS), PACT commissioned a preliminary system analysis which identified the need for an IMS as paramount for its conservation investments. 

Service Description: 

PACT is interested in identifying a national Consulting Team/Firm to undertake the development of its IMS. Among other considerations, this consultancy aims to develop a secure web-based IMS and a user manual for the use of the system, and to train relevant staff in the use of the system.

  4. Expertise in relevant programming language or database management suits. 
  5. Demonstrated previous experience in developing similar web-based IMSs. 

PACT invites interested Consulting Teams/Firms to submit an Expression of Interest indicating their competence and relevant experience in the development of IMSs or similar assingments.
