PIDS is the first online data monitoring system for USAID/Liberia, automating the annual performance review and informing Mission-level decision making. Mission users achieved 100% data collection from Implementing Partners while the system has fully automated the data aggregation for the Mission’s annual Performance Plan and Report and indicator-associated data, such as the last date when the Data Quality Assessment was conducted.
In February 2021, the PIDS Activity Project (PAP) was launched which is designed to support USAID/Liberia and its implementing partners. The primary purpose of the PAP is to support USAID/Liberia by maintaining and improving the existing PIDS functionalities, ensuring continuation of the performance monitoring activities.
During this year-long program, Synergy has provided technical support, hosting, and maintenance of the PIDS, and mobile app, electronic PIDS (ePIDS). Synergy also provided maintenance and operational support to the USAID/Liberia ArcGIS Online platforms. The Mission has relied on PIDS to prepare the PPR for USAID/Washington, and to prepare for the DIS data migration. Synergy managed these various platforms for USAID/Liberia that enhanced learning, reporting, and knowledge sharing.
In addition to supporting USAID/Liberia by maintaining and improving the functionality of PIDS, Synergy is providing technical assistance in the Mission-wide transition of indicator reporting from the PIDS to the Development Information Solution (DIS) platform. USAID/Liberia started the transition to DIS quarter one as USAID began piloting the global information system across several Missions in Asia and Africa.
