African Union to Manage its Partnerships through Synergy’s M&E Platform


In May 2012, Synergy was awarded a UNDP contract for the development of the Partnerships Management Information System of the African Union Commission (AUC), which, based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is the administrative branch of the African Union. Because AUC forges various partnerships around the world aimed at supporting the African Continent’s development, it needs an effective tool for planning, coordinating, monitoring and evaluating, and reporting on its array of partnerships. The anticipated information system will consolidate all partnership programs and projects in a web environment, together with online data entry, sophisticated analytics, and user-friendly dashboards. This project falls within a broader organizational effort, supported by UNDP, to develop a sound framework for the management and coordination of the Commission’s partnerships.
