The “Integrated web-based Management Information System (MIS) Software” for National Agricultural Technology Program- Phase II Project (NATP-2) is to collect and analyze baseline, yield, and sales information to increase agricultural productivity of smallholder farms and improve smallholder farmers’ access to markets in 270 selected Upazilas of 57 Districts.
Integrated monitoring tool for monitoring, evaluating, and tracking project activities and progress in real-time from field levels like remote Union, Upazila, and farmer’s premises. Govt. high officials and development partners can retrieve analytical reports without the tedious compilation of data collected from field level in different hierarchical levels of offices, which help in analyzing the activity outcome and decision-making of further investments in the similar development sector.
The MIS Software monitors project activities focusing on tracking physical and financial progress, supports decision-making through generating analytical reports, an instrument for oversight and review; as well as capturing information required for evaluating results based on a defined set of parameters and performance metrics.
The MIS Software solves the problem of difficulty in the collection of accurate information from previous paper-based manual systems from a large number of implementing field offices and beneficiaries and compilation of reports to measure project progress and helped the project management office in decision making and take proper steps on time for successful implementation of the project. The web-based MIS Software implemented in the three-line department (Department of Agricultural Extension-DAE, Department of Fisheries-DoF, and Department of Livestock Services-DLS) largely benefitted more than one million farmers directly from the project interventions.
