TOR - Dashboard and Analytics Consultants
Overview :

UNCDF would like to achieve the following additional tasks related to the data analytics and visualization dashboard:

Standardized dashboard data API

This will offer seamless data exchange between UNCDF and project partners. The API will also automatically enforce required data formats and eliminate file naming conventions currently required before uploading performance reports to SharePoint for preprocessing and updating the dashboard.

Standard application interface for partners to directly upload project performance data

This user interface will allow UNCDF partners with systems not ready to integrate to APIs to directly upload project performance reports. 

Report creation and sharing interface

  • This will allow the creation of reports comparing different data types (for example "Amount of UNCDF investment" versus "Number of beneficiaries reached")
  • These would be easily shared with different team members, donors and other partners and stakeholders.

Converting currently static indicators to dynamic

Certain indicators which are currently static on the dashboard will automatically get updated within the dashboard periodically
