Innovation, Execution, Partnership


Seven focus areas:

(i) Creative and strategic partnerships;

(ii) Innovation in Project Cycle Management;

(iii) Data analysis, evaluation, &adaptive management; 

(iv) Technical assistance and capacity building

(v)  Strong systems (e.g. health system, education system, financial system, M&E system)

(vi) Human Centered Design & Community capacity building

(vii) Impact measurement & impact monetization

We believe in:

  • Efficiency in project implementation leads to sustainable development and better value for money
  • Evidenced-based actions and impact
  • Sustainability;
  • Technology use and innovation are essential to improve management, implementation, and quality access
  • Cost efficiency is important aspect of good management
  • Knowledge sharing through crowdsourcing of best practices
  • Timely implementation saves lives and money
  • Local ownership
  • Strategic partnerships 
  • Accountability, transparency, data quality, evaluation
  • Local ownership & capacity building 

About Us

The Center for Implementation  Efficiency (C4ie) is a knowledge sharing digital platform - sharing lessons learned, best practices, practical ideas, etc. to facilitate learning and collaboration to improve program implementation by non-profit organizations. Efficient implementation includes technical and execution efficiency.  It means a strong health system, able to deliver integrated services. It means an education system that is efficient and owned by communities.  It means efficient use of resources, thus freeing up resources for other development initiatives.  Inefficiencies also occur due to slow absorption of allocated resources.

The Center is also a technical assistance provider in seven areas and has various experts who have several decades of global experiences.

Efficiencies can be achieved at any stage of project cycle management - design, start-up, implementation, and evaluation. Thomas Watson of IBM said "Good design is good business".  We know good design is the initial step toward good implementation. 

The Center will collect and make available best practices in implementation so that project managers and donors can use the information for implementation improvement and program design as part of continuous improvement process.

The Center will provide critical and independent assessments of program/ project implementation to assess impact, value for money, and efficiency. We believe in private sector approach to evaluation for rapid feedback on implementation and a dynamic adaptive management system for course corrections for results.

We will identify and support innovation that contributes to both effectiveness and cost-efficiency. 

We will implement new and innovative initiatives and assist local partners to respond to local needs.

We will also serve as a capacity building through ongoing learning platform. 

What we cover:

Maternal & child health, reproductive health, adolescent health, communicable diseases, health systems, non communicable diseases(NCDs), vaccine programs, education programs, nutrition, economic opportunity, and capacity building.
