Development Gateway helps promote aid effectiveness, good governance, and donor coordination through the implementation of e-government solutions for aid and financial management. The Aid Management Platform (AMP) is a web-based e-government solution that builds the management capacity and reporting capabilities of developing country governments. The AMP allows the government and donors to manage aid flows into the country as well as generate reports, develop visualizations, and conduct analyses. Quickly deployable, it supports a country’s national development framework, reduces administrative costs, and enables close coordination with donors.
The Aid Management Program satisfies a wide range of information management requirements. Recipient governments use AMP to collect information directly from donor agencies on their development aid projects so that they can monitor project implementation, coordinate with donors, and produce more accurate aid and budget reports. This requires open communication channels, databases with advanced security and permissions schemes, automated reporting modules, and key project management features. AMP integrates all of these functions into a central, web-accessible application hosted on a government’s own server, or in the cloud. Information is automatically integrated and standardized so that all relevant actors can access timely, comprehensive, and accurate information.
The Aid Management Platform can be used to manage projects in a variety of contexts, and can be adapted to meet the needs of donor agencies or NGOs that need a centralized way to track and collaborate on development activities. It can also be integrated with financial or statistical systems to provide a more holistic picture of resources, investments, and results.
