Why?

We have launched this site because most newspapers, journals, or magazines do not publish think piece or op-eds on implementation efficiency and lessons learned on efficient management in the development sector. Most of the organizations are interested in efficiencies but do not systematically publish or share their lessons learned. Most evaluation reports are not shared with the public.  Imagine a world where we can learn from each other and be more efficient in our use of resources in the development sector.  All donors are interested in efficient use of resources and value for money.  Efficiency and impactful use of resources are fundamental to good management.

Knowledge Management: (Field Stories)

We will publish good stories from you on implementation efficiencies, innovation, use of technology to improve management at various levels, new untested ideas, etc.  We want to share best practices and lessons learned. Please write to us in the following email address.  We will publish quality papers/blogs/op-ed from you but please note we do not pay for any articles.  The key objective is to share knowledge with as many people as possible.

About Us

The Center for Implementation  Efficiency is a for profit think tank and project management company  with innovative thinkers on implementation management and program governance.  

We believe in:

  • Efficiency in project implementation leads to sustainable development;
  • Technology use is essential to improve management and implementation
  • Cost efficiency is fundamental  to sustainable service delivery;
  • Private sector partnership with government and NGOs are essential to ensure universal access to services;
  • Knowledge sharing, research on implementation, and collaboration 
  • Value for money and aid effectiveness
  • Public accountability, transparency, and data quality 

As an independent company, The Center will provide critical and independent assessments of program/ project implementation efficiency in developing countries.  We will identify and support innovation that contributes to both effectiveness and cost-efficiency. We want to assess donor funded projects for cost efficiency, effectiveness, and value for money.

Our Focus:

  • Projects funded by various donor agencies - bilateral, multilateral, foundations, corporate and individual donors.
  • Focus areas: maternal & child health, reproductive health, communicable diseases, health systems, non communicable diseases(NCDs), vaccine programs, and education programs.

WHAT WE OFFER:

    Consultancy services

    Project management and implementation

    Program monitoring, performance analysis and evaluation



    BACKGROUND

The Center is set up to focus on efficient use of resources so that more can be done with existing and new resources. We need actions to save million more lives with urgent interventions in NCDs and other emerging health challenges while promoting sustainable financing for communicable diseases, maternal and child health, family planning, and health systems. NCDs kill over 36 million people every year and it contributes to 63% of global deaths. 80% of these deaths are in developing countries. Trillions of lost revenues and productivity are now taking place and the loss is expected to increase. The number of people over 60 years is growing rapidly and will be 1 billion strong within 10 years. At least 200 million women of reproductive age do not have access to family planning services and commodities. While maternal deaths have been reduced, we still see over 250,000 annual deaths from pregnancy related complications. More deaths are caused by tobacco use than from HIV/AIDS.

Billions of dollars are now invested in the development sector with the aim of rapid improvement in the lives of millions of people and reduce poverty. The WHO 2010 World Health Report discussed about health system inefficiencies, estimating that 20% to 40% of all health spending ($1.5 trillion USD) is wasted. These are illustrative figures. According to Project Management Institute “Organizations waste US$51 million for every US$1 billion spent on projects and programs due to poor requirements management.” The real point here is that there is much can be done by governments and donors to free up resources which are needed for health interventions. One of the key goal of the Paris Declaration of 2005 was increasing the efficiency of development assistance. Financing mechanisms such as GAVI, the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, IFC, MCC, PEPFAR, UNITAID, World Bank, regional banks, IMF etc. are in place and moving billions of dollars to projects all over the world. Private philanthrophists and Foundations are also expanding their resource allocation to various interventions to improve quality of life. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are planning a $600 billion mega foundation.

In addition, new donors such as China, India, Brazil, and Russia are also expanding their bilateral assistance programs. These large scale investments pose major challenges on implementation capacity because of limited human resources, poor infrastructure, and inadequate systems to manage programs that require scaling up for impact within a shorter period of time. Uncoordinated donor funds, duplication of resource allocation, inefficient parameters to assess program investment, and corrupt institutions and individual means less money reaching the poorest of the poor.
