Under this set of services, Clemboat Consult provides consultation for donor agencies, governments and government agencies, NGOs, businesses as well as entrepreneurs. These services are grouped into three categories:

Development Project Planning
We provide consultancy services to donor agencies, governments and government agencies, corporate bodies, NGOs and Foundations for planning and developing demand-driven development projects that mainly work to increase food security, reduce poverty, improve education and health in developing countries. This service covers appraisal to launching of the project for implementation
Development Project Management
With our experience and expertise in developing and managing development projects (e.g. Inland Valleys Rice Development Project, Ghana), we provide consultancy services to donor agencies, governments and government agencies, corporate bodies, NGOs and Foundations that mainly work to increase food security, reduce poverty, improve education and health in developing countries. These services include:
Developing Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework
It is pertinent to have a good M&E framework by which the project data can be captured and reported on appropriately. This helps to know how the project is performing and, thus helps in making informed decision about the project. We provide services that develop the M&E framework needed to collect data periodically and progressively (monthly, quarterly, yearly, cumulatively), for your project. The M&E Framework that we develop comes with embedded formulae for auto-summations and all other calculations needed.
Developing Project Work Plans and Budgets (Annual & Composite):
International development projects run by work plans and budgets. These are developed for each year (annual work plans and budgets) and as an aggregate (Composite Work Plan and Budget). We provide services in developing these annual work plans and budgets as well as the composite work plan and budget.
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) of ID Projects
We provide M&E services that give you independent assessment of your project. It is independent of what your project’s M&E team does. This independent M&E service can be used as a sole means of monitoring and evaluating your project or to complement your M&E team.
Writing ID Project Reports (Monthly, Quarterly and Annual Reports)
We have extensive experience in writing project reports. As project managers, in most cases the workload is so much that it becomes difficult to write reports. Unforeseen circumstances may derail your efforts to meet deadlines in submitting reports to sector ministries or departments and the funding agencies. You may have monitored and collected data, but having time to write report(s) on the data becomes elusive. We write your report(s) for you, when you have the data or information but you are not able to make time to write the report due to the demands of the project. However, in the absence of readily available data or information, we collect the data or information and write the report for you.
Mid-Term Review of Projects
We provide services for mid-term review of your ongoing projects. By reviewing your project, we give recommendations that will help you to re-align your indicators and resources, where necessary, in your quest to achieve your project goal and objectives.
Revision of Project’s List of Goods and Services (LOGS)
International development projects are distinct from traditional projects. As such its management is also unique from traditional projects. There are instances that you need to revise the lists of goods and services (LOGS) stated in the project appraisal document to ensure successful implementation of the project. We provide services that revise your projects LOGS to ensure judicious use of the resources allocated to the project, while not compromising on achieving the overall goal of the project.
Project Completion Survey and Reporting
We provide services that collect data on your completed or near-complete project, analyse it and report on it appropriately. This include, but not limited to, which type of data to be collected, the survey instrument to be used in order to get the right responses, the stakeholders to be involved in the survey, among others. A good project completion report gives a good account of the project, and opens an avenue for possible extension and or expansion of the project. Contact us for comprehensive and quality project completion reporting.

Sustainable Family Owned Businesses (FOBs)
From their sheer numbers, through providing employment to a lot of people, to their contribution to a major part of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of several countries around the globe, Family Owned Businesses (FOBs) are very important in our everyday lives. But often times most of these FOBs are not able to stand the test of time. Most FOBs don’t survive into the second and subsequent generations. However, others have been able to survive, and they keep surviving generations after generations. Do you want your FOB to be part of those surviving? Do you seek to transfer a viable and sustainable FOB to your descendants? That is why we are here. Through research and studies we have gained knowledge and expertise in how to organize and lead FOBs to make them viable and sustainable, generation after generations.

This include, among other things, creating awareness about your FOB’s competitors and counterparts/complementers.
