PROJECT MANAGEMENT

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

CTG uses local network to mobilize, at speed, large-scale projects on the ground.

CTG has the capabilities to manage projects and programmes of every size, from monitoring and evaluating food distribution, to assisting in the return of migrants and displaced populations. We’re agile, using the technical expertise needed to mobilize a project at speed while doing so efficiently and cost-effectively.

Relying on our local networks, experience in conflict zones and attention to duty of care enables us to implement projects in high-risk locations in the remotest of regions, going where most people can’t. Being on the ground, all the time, means that we can keep humanitarian assistance flowing wherever we work.

CASH SOLUTIONS

CASH SOLUTIONS

Planning and implementing transparent schemes to distribute cash, with verification and reporting, to vulnerable communities.

Cash-based assistance, both cash and vouchers, is increasingly recognized as a potentially faster, safer and more efficient way of delivering humanitarian assistance – supporting the dignity of those affected by conflict and disaster. CTG has the capabilities and experience to support the implementation of cash-based programmes.

EXPERIENCE

CTG staff implemented stipends to the Somali security sector. Thanks to these payments, the soldiers received a living wage and were able to continue their work fighting terrorism, without being driven to working with Al Shabaab out of financial desperation. In order to identify that the right person gets the payment, the teams worked with portable biometric systems.

FLEET MANAGEMENT

FLEET MANAGEMENT

Overseeing all fleet maintenance activities including safe delivery and monitoring of fuel consumption.

CTG drivers are responsible for the safe delivery of vital food and supplies to destinations ranging from relatively safe city warehouses to the most remote depots in high-risk locations. With grassroot networks throughout the countries we operate in, our drivers have a strong support system of CTG mechanics and recovery personnel.

From ensuring vehicles are in good working condition to monitoring of fuel consumption, accident reports, fleet safety and registration, CTG oversees all fleet maintenance activities.

Our clients don’t just use the roads: supplies are also delivered by river and by airdrop.

EXPERIENCE

South Sudan presents one of the most logistically challenging operations for humanitarian partners due to widespread insecurity and a limited road network that deteriorates significantly during the rainy season. Key to successful delivery are reliable vehicles and a strong support team: CTG manages a fleet of trucks in South Sudan and is responsible for repair and maintenance with workshops in Juba, Bor, Rumbek and Wunrok. We also provide manpower services to support logistics and fleet operations, recruiting qualified international and national personnel. Our 400 staff include drivers, support staff, workshop staff, air drop zone coordinators and convoy leaders.

MONITORING & EVALUATION

MONITORING & EVALUATION

From reporting on food distribution to long-term development projects, CTG staff create and implement Monitoring & Evaluation frameworks and reporting mechanisms.

Thanks to our grassroots networks and on-the-ground Duty of Care, our teams are able to access high-risk locations that our clients cannot. With the capacity to deliver Monitoring & Evaluation from project inception to analysis and delivery, our access to qualified local staff ensures cultural sensitivity and effective delivery.

EXPERIENCE

  • CTG manages food security with a focus on food safety and food product optimisation, ensuring alignment with the procurement and supply chain strategy, policies and plans.
  • We support Mine Action projects in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Mali, and provide a range of experts skilled in tackling explosive threats that are often unique to each country. Areas of focus range from risk education, to capacity enhancement (building local national expertise and training local forces on how to deal with hazards) to technical advice.
  • CTG provides engineers, planners and architects who are experienced in seeing projects through in challenging environments. Projects have included building schools, roads, hospitals, police headquarters and water systems as well as monitoring the correct use of building materials in conflict zones.

TRAINING & CAPACITY BUILDING

TRAINING & CAPACITY BUILDING

Providing subject matter experts to help restore governance. CTG staff also design and deliver Security Sector Reform training programmes.

CTG staff help improve capacity of central Government institutions to coordinate and lead structural reform and policy harmonization processes. Our experts have been actively engaged in organising, designing and developing ministries, and strengthening cross cutting and sectoral public sector capacities through dedicated support. Work includes support for the development of inclusive, accountable, affordable, and accessible government institutions in fragile and conflict affected countries at national and local levels.

CTG has experience providing transitional support to elections including electoral operations, institutional capacity development and public outreach. We provide experts and local assistants to help support a free and fair democratic process.

EXPERIENCE

CTG consultants played an integral part in Provincial Governance assistance in Afghanistan, advising Governors and their staff, sub-national administration and national representative bodies in governance development and capacity building. Deployed to a number of provinces throughout Afghanistan, the CTG Regional Governance Advisors were responsible for mentoring in the formulation of policy strategies, the identification of policy and development constraints and further developing mechanisms with which to approach and remove those constraints. Specializing in remote and high-risk locations, CTG staff travelled to some of the most inhospitable provinces to assist in overcoming the toughest development challenges.

PROCUREMENT & LOGISTICS

PROCUREMENT & LOGISTICS

CTG delivers agile, scalable and cost-effective logistics and supply chain services to support our partners in their work.

We engage not only with the client in developing our supply chains, but also with the local stakeholder community to build situational awareness, and other actors (including INGOs and existing humanitarian coordination structures) to learn from their experience. Our carefully crafted, jointly developed and collaboratively implemented programmes ensure that procurement systems and supply chains adhere to compliance with transparent aid delivery.

CTG is committed to building appropriate local capacity without impacting negatively on the availability of goods and services to the communities we serve. This coherent approach allows us to achieve excellence in the delivery of procurement and logistic services to assure humanitarian end-states.

Our experience in post-conflict areas that are characteristic of the need for improved procurement and logistic capability provides a deep understanding of the environments and cultural norms, which is central to our success.

EXPERIENCE

In Iraq, CTG activated a network of regional experts and subject matter experts who were able to deliver in-country procurement and create a logistic sustainment solution that underpinned a long-term engagement. Our targeted recruitment of specialist subject matter experts ensured that deployed teams were not only tailored to meet the authority requirement, but also continually and deliberately evolved to meet emerging challenges whether in terms of geographies, thematic areas or broader technical skills. Together with ready access to partners’ skills and experience, we benefit strongly from region-specific knowledge and understanding, offering the potential for cross-deployment of culturally aware and politically sensitive staff at short notice, to provide continuity and the early adoption of best practice across our contracts.

PPE & Testing Kits

PPE & Testing Kits

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a global shortage of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). The shortage is manifesting itself across developed countries as well as developing and fragile, conflict-affected areas. There is increasing pressure on industry and Governments to fill the gap but many industry players do not have the ability to pull together all of the requisite pieces of the puzzle.

As a Chelsea Group company, alongside our sister companies, CTG has particular capabilities, skillset and geographic connectivity that make us particularly well placed to deliver certified PPE on a global basis. Offering an end-to-end solution, we supply and deliver PPE ranging from KN95 masks to ventilators.

CTG also provides CE & FDA certified COVID-19 testing kits: these are rapid blood tests as well as swab test kits with a tested accuracy of between 96 to 99.9% with same day results and CE & FDA certification.
