A few days ago we got a request from DGG dir to furnish data on the sub-practice, including: countries or country typology/regions your teams support directly; number of experts available for country support (including experts from the DG roster); regional focus, priority countries; key areas of focus and challenges; examples of COs that we supported directly and have achieved substantive results; practical tools/products that has been developed for COs (developed by HQ for COs and tools that have been developed globally by CO or RSC governance teams); budget AND expenditures (combined UNDP/UNOPS); key results achieved 2012 (results as a decrease/increase from previous reporting period); partners- donors; and measuring indicators. And all this needed to be submitted in a few days.
I initially asked DGG to create a tracker system that will allow them to collect information in real time and on demand. I then sent them a few links to previous reports we have already submitted this year (and posted in the blog). Finally, I had to spend most of today’s morning (a beautiful Spring Sunday morning in NY!) writing this report: egov DGG data report.
The report uses some of the information already contained in the previous reports but it also has some original material.
And we still do not have a tracking system…
