This consultancy will build on & drive forwards work done so far, as part of the wider CMS project, to identify and deliver a set of standardised contract management processes, templates, guidelines and policies for the ActionAid Federation.
A CMS global workshop was held in October 2016, during which process maps & associated narrative were made documenting the processes involved in the donor contract management cycle.
These process maps form the basis of the future standardized processes that will eventually be adopted across the Federation to ensure strong donor contract management. They will also be used to design and configure an online Contract Management System (CMS).
For ease of reference, the contract management cycle has been split into 5 phases:
1)Opportunity Identification & Assessment
In addition to the introduction of a CMS, ActionAid is also introducing a new Global Finance System (GFS). There are key business process links between donor contract management and finance, so it is imperative that the CMS and the GFS are aligned and can link to each other. An initial mapping exercise has been completed so we have identified the interfaces between the CMS & the GFS. However further work needs to be done to map out these interfaces further & develop business rules around them.
