IFC Reach Survey streamlining

Deadline: 20-Oct-2015 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

An annual Reach Survey of IFC clients International_Finance_Corporation_Logowhich lend to micro, small, and medium enterprises allows us to track financial institutions financing activity, and the development impact that IFC achieves through its private investments and advisory services in the financial sector.

IFC is in search of a consulting and technology service provider (Consultant) that will help to improve the efficiency and quality of the IFC Reach Survey process. Through the IFC Reach Survey Streamlining project, IFC intends to:
Outsource the Reach Survey data collection by either:

  • Streamlining the data collection process through an online platform, which will allow IFCs client financial institutions to report directly to that platform and then review data quality and resolve data issues with clients directly. In this option, the Consultant should provide flexibility to report offline (through Excel template) for the clients with poor internet connection or unwilling to submit data online, or
  • Collecting the data in excel format, aggregating the data from all clients, reviewing the data quality and resolving quality issues with clients directly
    Optimize the communication process with the reporting financial institutions during the Reach data collection and data quality review;
    Improve the quality of the data collected by outsourcing the data control function to the dedicated Consultant.

IFC expects the Consultant to manage the Reach Survey data collection and data cleaning from approximately 100-150 client financial institutions (microfinance institutions, banks and non-bank financial institutions) during the period January June 2016 with a possibility of rolling out the scope onto all clients in all regions of IFC operations in the following years thereafter up to 2018. Upon the assessment of the CY2015 project results, IFC may decide to roll out the project on the larger scope, or terminate the contract, if the services are not deemed satisfactory IFC.
