Synergy Developing First-of-its-Kind M&E System for UN in Tanzania


In March 2012, Synergy was engaged by UNDP to develop a web-based Results Monitoring System (RMS) for the United Nations Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP) in Tanzania, which, is the common business plan for 20 UN agencies, funds and programs in the country. The UNDAP is the culmination of the “Delivering as One” trend within the UN, the purpose of which is to make UN assistance in countries more coordinated, results-driven, and aligned with country development objectives.

The software platform will help UN agencies in Tanzania to plan, monitor and report against the “One Plan.” In particular, it will facilitate the development of annual work plans and the reporting of planned results and targets.

Launched in July 2012, the UNDAP for Tanzania will be implemented until June 2015, with a total budget of $777 million dollars. In fact, Tanzania is the first country to apply the UNDAP methodology, which means that the Results Monitoring System will be a first-of-its-kind software across the UN system and could potentially be replicated in other UNDAP countries.
