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<http://www.commtrack.org/home/>,
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 our
website (www.commtrack.org/poc/commtrack/).
 Applications are due by 
*December 23*, 2013.

Sincerely,

The Dimagi Team
