Software to manage
Since 2010, IDEA International Institute has created a branch which focuses on the development of IDEA Solutions. The IDEA Solutions Branch is comprised of IT specialists and management specialists working together to develop innovative and practical products.
IDEA Solutions is a suite of concrete solutions in terms of web-based information systems to support Results-Based Management ( RBM ) processes.
These state of the art software facilitate data entry, processing, analysis, and provide access of public sector executives and professionals to dashboards, early warning systems, and generation of reports.
The specific solution is tailor-made to the client needs and constraints.
For high-level officials in the public sector who need up-to-date and accurate information for decision making and accountability.
For managers and professionals in the public sector to better plan, budget, and monitor the implementation of public programs and projects.
The Results-Based Management ( RBM ) cycle includes several phases : ( i ) planning, ( ii ) programming and budgeting, ( iii ) implementation, and ( iv ) monitoring & evaluation with a feedback loop back to the next cycle. One needs also to take into account that the RBM cycle is implemented at several levels : strategic, programmatic and operational. The figure below presents this cycle with phases in columns and levels in lines.
The IDEA Solutions processes and software deal with specific parts of the RBM cycle or with the whole cycle as indicated later.
Guides a rapid and participatory diagnostic of the implementation of one or more pillars of RBM
Provides a measurable assessment of the current status of RBM implementation for benchmarking, comparison with similar entities, and assessment of progress over time
Facilitates the identification and prioritization of bottlenecks
Facilitates the elaboration of a medium term action plan and annual work plan for further RBM implementation
Helps monitor the execution of the annual work plan for further RBM implementation
Clarifies the main steps of the budgeting process in articulation with strategic and operational planning.
Guides the rapid and participatory formulation of the different steps of a medium term budgetary ( or fiscal ) framework.
Guides the rapid and participatory formulation of the different steps of a sectoral medium-term expenditure framework and multiannual program-budgets.
Assists in the development of matrices of unit costs of public goods and services.
Facilitates the yearly monitoring of the main result and strategic indicators.
Monitors the implementation of the annual work plan and budget ( AWPB ) and of programs/projects.
Facilitates the articulated monitoring of budget execution, project implementation, and results indicators.
Produces easy-to-interpret dashboards and charts.
Automatically generates a preliminary version of progress and performance reports

IDEA Solutions are add-ons to other systems, so there is no need to replace existing systems. Interfaces can be built with the majority of existing systems.
IDEA Solutions evolve over time to benefit from client experience, evolution of client needs, and technological progress. The client obtains the current version at the time of purchase. The software assurance plan gives easy and affordable access to updates.
IDEA Solutions can be ordered by contacting IDEA International: email@example.com or (1) 418-266-1223
The price of the IDEA Solutions depends on the scope of the system to be managed, especially the number of programs and sub-programs/budgets, and the number of services provided by institution in the implementation process (e.g. training, technical support, implementation of the application, software assurance plan). The purchase price and installation cost vary according to:
- The complexity of the system to be monitored, which is reflected by the number of planning elements;
- Specialized modules desired beyond the principal module; - Additional support you need in terms of diagnostic, training, and Software Assurance Plan. We will gladly send you a quotation based on your expressed needs.
