The PROMAD Foundation, a civic tech nonprofit that advocates community needs assessment for participatory budgeting, has launched its Strategic Operational Policy (SOP).
According to the organization, the SOP will guide its operations and help the organization make substantial contributions to accountable and participatory governance to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Nigeria.
The policy was approved at its July Board meeting in Abuja.
Chairman of the Board, Dr. James Kayode Naiyeju, OON, FCA, said “the policy will help the organization pursue its vision and carry out its mission effectively and efficiently, in line with the core values of PROMAD and international best practices in the field of non-profit organizations and the development sector.”
He explained that the policy will make the organization the darling of donors and development partners in terms of designing and implementing projects and programs that will foster the inclusion and participation of Nigerians in the task of building the country and to maintain its democracy as well as the continent.
Founder Daisi Omokungbe said the SOP was developed to establish ways of doing things and create a strategic operational roadmap for the organization.
He said: “The policy has five chapters which include Organizational Information, Organizational Programs and Human Resource Management.
“Others include plans, managing strategic partnerships and fundraising, performance measurement, reporting and management.”
According to the executive director, “the policy detailed the thematic areas of intervention, governance and leadership structures, short, medium and long term plans for the organization as well as financial management and control”.
