Support (Old Model)
• DSG “One-stop-shop” under CSF LTA (20092013)
 Helpdesk
 Software maintenance
 Training
• DevInfoLAC
• A few ad hoc individual consultants
• Master Trainer’s Network
Support (New Model)
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Separate: the initiative, software, vendors
Multiple LTAS holders -> competition
Continue DevInfoLAC model
No more “DevInfo Support Group”
Encourage individual consultants

(UN Development Group / UNDOCO)
• To be managed jointly by UNSSC and UNICEF
Rationale for Change
• DevInfo implemented by a single service
provider for 20 years

• Scope to modernize dissemination tools at
lower cost by switching to open-source
approach and bringing in new ideas

evaluation activities.

Next Steps?
• What role could DevInfo play, or what other
products/approaches should UNICEF take to promote
the dissemination and use of MICS data?
• Should UNICEF update the MICS4 template, based on
the new list of indicators and tabulation plan, to
produce a MICS5 template i.e. would any countries
be interested in that?
