As a part of this process, we are looking for a tech savvy business development consultant to map various donor databases and develop a dashboard where donor opportunities can be tracked and curated for various business units. The goal of this consultancy is to move quickly and efficiently to develop a minimum viable product (MVP) and get it in front of users quickly – by the end of February 2019. The tool will be further refined and tailored based on user feedback – a process that may lead to subsequent engagements with the consultant.

2. Inventory donor news sites. The consultant will create an inventory of donor news sites, where global development news is published, including Devex, the Guardian, etc regarding major industry developments, events, opportunities etc.
