Norwegian Church Aid (NCA), as a global humanitarian actor, provides life-saving assistance and protection to communities and people affected by crisis. NCA is governed by the humanitarian imperative of humanity, independence and neutrality where humanitarian needs come first and relief is provided regardless of sex, age, ethnicity, religion, political conviction, gender identity or other identities. About 150 people are employed at the headquarters in Oslo and 650 national employees are divided into 20 country offices.

Norwegian Church Aid is going to modernize and update its digital landscape, ensuring that we will be able to continue our development in 2020 and beyond. NCA is currently working on several parallel projects to update and/or implement digital systems. A cross-organizational project group have been established to ensure systematic follow-up and information flow between projects, steering group, HO and country offices.

Information about the assignment:

Leading this bigger project is a complex task, that requires both professional project management, careful follow-up of synergies and dependencies between all our ongoing activities, and a thorough analysis of cross-cutting topics such as master data management and process mapping. These tasks are so extensive and important that we also see the need for external consultancy support. 

NCA will lead most of the work both in the overall project group (Digi-team) and within the sub-projects, but with input and support from external consultants when needed. The scope might evolve as our Digitalization work matures.

The scheduled timeframe is estimated to a two years agreement from the end of 2018 until the end of 2020. Most of the work and need for consultancy services will be in 2019.
