Terms of Reference for Development of Web-based Database Application for INSTANT Projects 

  • Design, develop, adequately test and ultimately actualize a web-based database application that will assist its users (RATN and MIs) to access, analyze, process, and convert data into useful information using various search, sort, filter, and rank queries.
  • Since it will have different users of the system with different privileges, this database is required to have multiple views depending upon the needs of users.
  • It should serve the basic needs such as data entry and report generation for all users at all levels
  • The database should have an installable off-line version that can be updated/ synchronized with the online version.
  • The database will also serve as a planning, monitoring, and evaluation system other than just being an information source
  • The database will have various views: Some information on the database will be displayed for public viewing on the website. This link gives an idea of what is expected.
  • The database should provide administrative logs tracking the various activities done from specific accounts. The public profile/display should also provide adequate statistics on views and hits.
  • User involvement throughout the project to ensure that it meets the needs of the users.
