The Center for Implementation Efficiency promotes efficient use of resources!

 


MISSION:

To pursue efficiency, innovation, and effectiveness in development projects.

VISION:

To be the global leader on knowledge sharing on implementation efficiency, impact evaluation, project design, and implementation managdement.

OBJECTIVES:

·         To provide a learning platform on implementation efficiencies

·         To assess efficiencies and effectiveness of donors resource investment

 ·         To provide technical assistance on implementation arrangements for efficient operations

·         To provide monitoring and evaluation technical support 

·         Research and publish critical operations research reports on implementation efficiency to influence policy and operational thinking; publish best practices;

·         To implement innovative projects in support of Sustainable Development Goals, local health systems, MCH, non communicable diseases, & education ;

 ·         To provide technical assistance to projects with performance problems and provide solutions for efficient implementation and sustainability

 ·         To assist with strategic consortium partnerships for program development and implementation efficiency

·         To provide technical assistance in health, education, and capacity building projects;

Why?

We launched this company because knowledge sharing and impact evaluation are critical to improve implementation. 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 (C4ie) is a knowledge sharing digital platform with a clear focus on sharing best practices on implementation.  Best practices include efficient implementation, appropriate technology, and sustainable program delivery.  We will also assist with project implementation, evaluation, and innovative initiatives. We aim to become the single largest platform where donors and implementers can find best practices of projects in health, education, and local capacity building funded by all types of donors and national governments. The platform can also serve as discussion forum for people to engage and learn from each other. In a resource constraint world, we believe that efficient implementation will free up resources for additional investments. Our approach is to assess efficiency based on evidence submitted by implementers and review by experts.  Our services could include technical advice to review projects with lens of efficiency. Such review can include start-up phase, actual implementation, and as well as end of project assessment.

We believe in:

  • Efficiency in project implementation leads to sustainable development and better value for money;
  • Evidenced-based actions
  • Every project must focus on impact and sustainability;
  • Technology use and innovation are essential to improve management, implementation, and quality access;
  • Cost efficiency is important aspect of good management
  • Knowledge sharing, crowdsourcing best practices
  • Value for money, aid effectiveness, local ownership
  • Strategic partnerships for efficient implementation
  • Public accountability, transparency, and data quality
  • Local capacity building and evaluation

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.

The Center will provide critical and independent assessments of program/ project implementation to assess impact, value for money, and efficiency. 

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.

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

We will also serve as a problem solving platform for implementation challenges. 

Our Focus:

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

WHAT WE OFFER:

Knowledge management of best practices in implementation

Knowledge-based technical assistance services

Evidence-based Project management and implementation

Performance monitoring, impact measurement, and effectiveness analysis 


BACKGROUND

The Center is set up to focus on efficient use of resources so that more can be done with existing and new resources. 

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 have expanded their contributions significantly. For example,Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are planning a $600 billion mega foundation. Facebook Foundation and others are also stepping up major contributions.

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.
