Dimagi is pleased to announce that it will support five organizations from various sectors in India and Nepal to explore the use of mobile technology for logistics and supply chain management in low-resource settings. Each organization will be supported to launch a proof of concept of CommTrack, an open source mobile logistics tool that leverages CommCare and is part of the MOTECH Suite. CommTrack was developed through related projects in three countries with John Snow International. With successful deployments of the first generation of CommTrack already reaching national scale in the health sector, we are pleased to announce this opportunity for organizations to use CommTrack to strengthen their supply chain in health or other global development sectors. Through this RFA, India-based Dimagi staff will support five organizations in India and Nepal to rapidly deploy a proof-of-concept CommTrack application within twelve months of the award date. The objectives of this RFA are to: - Build capacity for organizations to implement mobile solutions for improved logistics and supply chain using CommTrack over either SMS or a mobile application. - Develop open source mobile applications and content that will be useful for ensuring availability of goods for health or other global development sectors. - Foster an environment for organizations to assess the costs and benefits of mobile phones for logistics and supply chain and help scale mobile programs where appropriate. Awardees will each receive *10 free phones* to deploy a CommTrack application designed for their organization, *free access to the CommTrack cloud-based server for one year*, and *one month of free support* from Dimagi’s experienced, India-based Field Managers, including a *2 week on-site visit* to help assess supply chain bottlenecks and launch CommTrack. For further information and to download the full RFA, please refer to ourwebsite (http://www.commtrack.org/poc/commtrack/). Applications are due by 23 December 2013. Sincerely, The Dimagi Team
