Several Monitoring Consultants (Somali Nationals only!)

The Risk Management Unit (RMU) is an internal department committed to establishing a strong result based monitoring and advisory system. This is to support different tiers of management for effective and efficient implementation of interventions undertaken by the organization. At the same time our prime focus will be to provide optimal support in order to further improve the transparency and accountability of all our interventions and processes. Additionally, we are focused on timely collection of refined information for relevant decision making both at program and policy level. The suggested monitoring system is based on the processes of constant learning from our interventions implemented both directly and indirectly in Somalia past, present and future.
