Child Protection Information Management System (CPIMS +) Consultant at Danish Refugee Council

Danish Refugee Council (DRC) has been operational in Rakhine since 2008 when it initially responded to the devastation caused by cyclones Nargis in the Ayeyarwady Division (2008) and Giri in Rakhine State (2010) and as such possesses extensive knowledge and understanding of the operating environment. As a consequence of the inter-communal violence in Central Rakhine in June and October 2012 the crucial humanitarian needs of the displaced communities triggered a considerable re-orientation of the DRC program in Rakhine in early 2013, resulting in an increased focus on displacement and addressing humanitarian needs. In Rakhine State, DRC is currently delivering shelter, community infrastructure, Water Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH), Non-Food Items (NFIs), livelihoods and protection (including child protection) assistance, to Internally Displaced People (IDPs) and conflict-affected populations. DRC furthermore serves as the Camp Management agency for approximately 68,000 IDPs in rural Sittwe.

Background information

DRC’s Protection Team supports vulnerable IDPs and host communities through case management and protection monitoring activities. Persons with specific needs supported through case management may include a person with a serious medical condition, a victim of trafficking, or the family of children involved in the worst forms of child labour, among others.

To be able to improve our case management work, we are looking for support in adapting the Inter Agency CP IMS + to DRC Protection needs and transfer of the current information to the new developed system.

The CPIMS + is a practical, field level tool that supports effective and timely responses to individual vulnerable children. It is comprised of database software and accompanying resources and guidance documents, such as standard documentation forms and template data protection protocols.

Purpose of consultancy

DRC is searching for a consultant with previous experiences in adapting, rolling out and managing the CPIMS+ to support the Protection team in tailoring the software to their needs. This will include shaping the IMS based on the forms currently in use in-country (in three different field bases), managing users and accesses to the platform, delivering training to the protection team on the use of the software and providing suggestions on the way forward and organizing the data and information flow.

The consultant will need to follow the Primero configuration process:

And have a thorough understanding of the deployment technology needed:
