The steering committee composed of INGO representatives and DGIE staff presented the reviewed need assessment report to the INGO community as agreed in the meeting of 23/09/12.
Representatives of International NGOs (INGOs) reviewed the need assessment report whereby the participants asked pertinent questions and added resource inputs in order to have a complete document.
The new database is meant to ease the workload of INGO and DGIE while handling registration, submission of annual reports and dealing with other agencies, according to Claudette Umulisa, the head of the INGO Unit at DGIE.
The incoming Chair of NINGO, Frederic Auger, also the Country Director of America Refugee Council pledged continued collaboration from the network in order to have a system that works for the DGIE, stakeholders and INGOs.
A Steering Committee composed of representatives of INGOs and DGIE will continue overseeing the development of the online INGO database until it’s fully developed.
