Consultant financial and operational process

Consultant financial and operational process 

Scenario-oriented research into optimal financial process design for 510 data team including system choice for support

THE NETHERLANDS RED CROSS – GENERAL INTRODUCTION

The Netherlands Red Cross helps to strengthen resilience of vulnerable people exposed to hazards and crisis situations and we respond to disasters and conflicts to save lives and alleviate suffering. In the Netherlands we do this with more than thirty thousand volunteers and internationally through technical assistance, supplies and financial aid. Together we act before, during and after natural and man-made disasters to meet the needs and to improve the lives of vulnerable people.

We do this without regards to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinion. Our seven principles guide our humanitarian work: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

The 510 data team:

The 510 data team (510) is the data initiative of the Netherlands Red Cross. Our vision is that smart use of (big) data will help towards faster and more (cost) effective humanitarian aid at a global level. Contributing to open data, data analyses and capacity building in governments and NGOs are essential to increase the understanding of humanitarian data. We want to shape the future of humanitarian aid by converting data into understanding, and to put it in the hands of humanitarian relief workers, decision makers and people affected, so that they can better prepare for and cope with disasters and crises.

RATIONALE FOR THE ASSIGNMENT:

Since its creation in 2016 the 510 has been acting as a data product and service provider within the Netherlands Red Cross and it has rapidly grown. In the first years it has delivered services primarily to the international programs of the Netherlands Red Cross. Since 2018 510 has started to deliver services to other Red Cross national societies. It is projected that the total portfolio of other national societies will outgrow the NLRC portfolio in 1-2 years. 510 has been integrated into the financial systems and processes of NLRC, with some exceptions, with the main aim of being compliant to necessary risk mitigation procedures necessary for the whole Netherlands Red Cross. It became apparent that the current financial system and operational processes do not guarantee the necessary speed and accuracy that 510 needs for delivering services to a wider group of clients, both internal and external.

A key step to enable the growth of 510 is to ensure adequate financial processes are in place that can still integrate in the monitoring and safeguarding boundaries of NLRC. To achieve this 510 needs a new design for the financial and operational processes, a choice of (financial and operational) system that enables these processes and guidelines for integration with NLRC financial processes and the 510 operational system.

ASSIGNMENT OBJECTIVES:

The objective of the assignment is to conduct research into the optimal financial and operational process design for 510 including the system choices for support and their integration.

WAY OF WORKING

The consultant will be working with a project team which is involved/affected by the choice of the financial system. Namely the project team will be composed by:  510 team members, System Architect for current NLRC system, Finance controller, Unit controller, Information Management.

DELIVERABLE:

  1. A short requirement study with the main stakeholders (financial and operational requirements).
  2. To research and design new operational and financial processes for 510:
  3. A scenario-based research into the possible course of actions with description of the operational and financial processes involved
  4. For each scenario analysis of consequences (intended and unintended) for the integration within NLRC
  5. Advice on the optimal choice among the scenarios
  6. Advice on system to use to support the optimal choice with an implementation plan
  7. Presentation of the results to the project team

TIMELINE AND LOCATION:

The consultant should work from the NLRC HQ office in Den Haag and in strict collaboration with the project team.

The assignment should be completed no later than 30 September 2019; the work is expected to require approximately 120 hours and can be spread over time.

At the start of the assignment, the consultant will be requested to prepare a more thorough work plan for the duration of the assignment, detailing any required key informants and data needs.

Client and support

Client of the project will be Juriaan Lahr, Head of the International department, and Wilco van Wijck, Head Finance & Control. Expressions of Interest in this project should be sent to Maris Moerman (Finance Manager, mmoerman@redcross.nl) and Maarten van der Veen (Strategic lead – 510, mvanderveen@redcross.nl) before the 1st of June 2019

SELECTION OF THE CANDIDATE

The interested candidates should submit their CV a proposed plan of implementation for the assignment, availability during the period of the assignment and a quotation. The selection will be based on skills and suitability of the implementation plan as well as cost. The candidates will be notified of the result of their application within two weeks of the closure of the call.
