UI for Location Management – RFP

Remote

Reveal is a collection of tools, including an Android mobile client supporting field operations, and a web interface supporting planning, management, and decision making surrounding the field implementations. The tool provides geospatial functionality to improve the efficiency of field based interventions, and utilizes high resolution satellite imagery over which location hierarchies and enumerated structures are layered. The current process for validating and uploading these data is manual and requires a relatively high level of technical expertise. This RFP aims to identify a contractor who will develop a user-friendly interface that can be used for location management, allowing non-technical users from program or ministry teams to handle the process.

Akros seeking an experienced and qualified expert to fill the role of Hospital Management Systems Lead for an anticipated CDC-funded project that will assist the Government of Tanzania (GOT) in the management, coordination, scale-up, and continuous modernization of Tanzania’s health information systems (HIS).

LEAD HIS PROJECT MANAGER

DAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA OR SOUTH AFRICA

Akros seeking an experienced and qualified expert to fill the role of Lead Health Information Systems Project Manager (LHPM) for an anticipated CDC-funded project that will assist the Government of Tanzania (GOT) in the management, coordination, scale-up, and continuous modernization of Tanzania’s health information systems (HIS).

The LHPM will be a technocrat, negotiator, and government relations focal point. LHPM will be primarily responsible for managing the technical road map development process (“DH2020”), from requirements sourcing to technical translation, ensuring both its technical rigor, comprehensiveness, alignment with user requirements and, perhaps most critical, acceptance by varied and non-linear government agencies. The task will be challenging and politically complex. With a secured road map in-hand, LHPM will be responsible to coordinate oversight of engineering processes with select government agencies, and establish a development operations method that is clear, durable, and efficient, incorporating iterative production/testing stages and, ultimately, user acceptance testing to validate alignment of final product with perceived user requirements. LHPM will then manage engineering inputs to deliver DH2020 technical products, and will be responsible for agile/iterative rescoping as defined by the development operations method above.
