THE KING SALMAN HUMANITARIAN AID & RELIEF CENTRE: Project Cycle Management (PCM) Design and Training 

2016

GEG WAS HIRED BY THE KING SALMAN HUMANITARIAN AID & RELIEF CENTRE TO DESIGN, IMPLEMENT AND MANAGE THE ROLLOUT OF A NEW PROJECT CYCLE MANAGEMENT GUIDE.  

Background: In 2016 GEG was retained by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Centre (KSRelief) to carry out a review of the Centre’s Project Cycle Management (PCM) systems and to design and deliver a “a user-friendly, practical and logical” PCM Guide. This Guide would be used to establish current best practice in humanitarian project management for the Kingdom to support KSRelief Project Management staff in the identification, selection and delivery of appropriate partner-implemented projects during disasters and conflicts. Upon completion of the PCM Guide, KSRelief wished to have key staff trained on use of the Guide through a Training of Trainers (ToT) course. GEG has experience in this sector of Disaster Management and has engaged previously with similar organisations in parallel institutional enhancement of systems and tools geared towards improved donor fund management.

Requirement: When the KSRelief Centre was established in 2015 to be the sole coordinating agency for the delivery of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s considerable and high-profile humanitarian funding efforts, it was clear that a high level of accountability and quality control was expected from the Royal Court, the government and the people of the country.  In order to ensure that the Centre met these expectations, senior management contracted the design and delivery of a high-quality project management tool to provide the information, solutions and operational structure to permit informed decision making in the Centre. The tool allows and ensures the selection of most efficient, effective, appropriate and sustainable projects for the Kingdom to support.

GEG Contribution: GEG deployed an experienced team of Project and Operations Management Experts with donor systems knowledge and technical skills to design a customized PCM Guide. As requested, GEG completed a plan of action, start-up inception consultations, and detailed interviews with key staff over a period of several months, including regular visits to the KSRelief Centre in Riyadh to ensure client engagement. The final PCM guide that GEG completed for the Centre was compact, highly useable and specifically tailored to the unique context of the Centre, while still reflecting the best of international donor funding and operational practice. The PCM tool was completed in English and translated into Arabic.
