Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is setting up a monitoring and evaluation
program in the Central African Republic (CAR) using ODK (specifically the
KoBo version) on at least 30 Android PDAs. What they're looking for is a
consultant who can come to the capital Bangui for a one to two-month
contract (possibly renewable) ASAP, though no later than April, in order to:
- Prepare the surveys for use in the field - adapting them to a format
acceptable for use by the application, if necessary programming the surveys,
and supervising their translation into local languages where necessary;
- Prepare the handsets for deployment;
- Train DRC's field project/M&E teams on their use;
- Oversee the implementation of the programme in the field;
- Set up and test workflow processes for the extraction and analysis of
- Help to analyse the results.
The desired profile is for someone dynamic and engaged, who speaks French
well enough to work autonomously in the language and conduct trainings, has
experience in field data collection and training of data collectors, and in
addition either has already used ODK or similar digital data collection
methods or is technically strong and capable of picking up the necessary
know-how very quickly. If the technical knowledge is lacking but everything
else is there, it's also possible that the most technical aspects (eg
programming of surveys into XML) could be done as a separate role.
The exact timing, duration and renumeration of the position can be
negotiated, but as of right now the latter would be EUR 3,000 per month +
return ticket to Bangui and accommodation in CAR but no additional per diem.
