UNDP / Philippines - Developing an evaluation portal to serve as a repository for government policies and materials, and information sharing platform for stakeholder accountability.
The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) is the independent agency responsible for economic development and planning in the Philippines. In partnership with UNDP, it embarked on a project to develop a National Evaluation Portal to help conduct evaluations and serve as a repository for government policies and materials, that will enable information sharing and evidence-based decision making.
Bewsys designed and developed the National Evaluation Portal as a management information system which features learning resources such as online courses.The portal was designed to ensure easy engagement with other evaluation practitioners and sharing of content through social media tools.
The National Evaluation Portal has made evaluation tools and studies accessible to the public, and improved the efficiency and accountability of government agencies. With this portal, the Philippines government can assess performance for improvement in weaker government agencies and enhance a community of practice to dialogue and exchange knowledge. The National Evaluation Portal contributes to the sustainable development goals, specifically promoting peaceful and strong institutions, by enabling evidence-based decision making.
Working with Bewsys has been a tremendous journey. We have not reached our destination, but we are enjoying the ride. Although it was supposed to be a corporate function, at meetings, we built rapport and trust with the consultants, and at the same time, they enhanced efficiency and collaboration.
Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Great service. I will recommend any day, anytime.
The Bewsys team worked professionally on our assignment and sought to deliver our needs with great patience and creativity. They are reliable and competent, and I recommend them for any assignment. Bewsys sure knows what it’s about. I’m particularly thrilled with the use of technology to accomplish tasks and also with the packaging of deliverables.
Very professional in their work and client communication. I was really impressed with their ability to meet all their deliverable schedules and, above all, submit a comprehensive user manual. I will recommend them to other projects.
Bewsys has been able to deliver what was expected based on the agreed timelines. The inception mission in the Philippines has been successful, and discussions with various stakeholders have been fruitful. Bewsys showed eagerness to know more about the unique requirements of the portal upon hearing it from firsthand users. They were able to accommodate various questions, comments, suggestions, and recommendations from different stakeholders, mainly from the government side, with each agency with unique requirements.
Bewsys staff are results-oriented and adapted a lot of tasks, and were flexible to ensure the solution they provided was the best. A feather in their cap!
There is a great need for digital systems development in Africa. I think it will be essential to continue supporting institutions such as Bewsys so they can do these jobs better. Also, we need to think about solutions that can be deployed quickly to support other institutions where there is a match in need.
