Project details

What we need
  • An assessment of Organization's IT infrastructure including costs, speed, reliability and security
  • Advice on various IT services and the cost-benefit associated with each option
  • Potentially more efficient and secure services
  • Note: This does not include tech systems set up or implementation
Additional details

As part of the implementation of GIH's five-year strategic plan, we would like to assess our information technology systems and policies, in particular our IT hardware, software, and network infrastructure, as well as the security of those systems.

By the end of the project, GIH hopes to have a full understanding of the state of our IT systems, including our IT hardware, software, and network infrastructure, as well as the state of security in those systems.

What we have in place
  • We can give the volunteer access to everything they need to help us with the IT assessment.
How this will help
This project will save us $8,001 , allowing us to invest more in our core mission of advancing better health for all through better philanthropy.

Our hope is that an independent third-party assessment can help us improve our IT systems and provide better services to our constituents.
