re: IHAA seeks evaluator for DFID PPA independent progress review
DFID provides funding to the International HIV AIDS Alliance (IHAA) through its Programme Partnership Arrangement (PPA). One of the key tools in the performance assessments of each agency is the Independent Progress Review (IPR) which will be commissioned by IHAA.
IHAA uses strategic funding from DFID through it’s PPA agreement to achieve the following outcomes :
1: Alliance programmes increase access to integrated services to people affected by HIV and AIDS.
2: Increased participation by people affected by HIV and AIDS in national and international policy processes.
3: More effective community based organisations deliver quality HIV programmes and hold governments to account.
IHAA is seeking an evaluator to conduct an independent progress review of the PPA.
The purpose of the IPR is threefold:
1. To assess the extent to which comments provided as part of the PPA Annual Review Process(es) have been acted upon by grantees (IHAA);
2. To verify, and supplement where necessary, IHAA reporting through the Annual Review Process, changing lives case study and the additionality report; and
3. To independently evaluate the impact that DFID funding has had on organisations and projects and to assess the value for money of the funding. The IPR should answer the question
What has happened because of DFID funding that wouldn‟t have otherwise happened? and To what extent does the use of funding represent good value for money?
Some relevant assessment lines of enquiry are detailed below. The Independent Evaluator should use their discretion in obtaining the information relevant to the assessment criteria.
The IPR shall be carried out by a suitably-qualified and experienced consultant. The consultant profile should include:
• An evaluation specialist, with experience in HIV/AIDS, community action, policy/advocacy, value for money with a minimum of seven years experience in programme/project delivery in an international development context
• Experience of results-based monitoring and evaluation
DELIVERABLES AND TIMEFRAME
No international travel is envisaged. The IPR consultant shall submit the finalised IPR to DFID
by mid October 2012. The evaluation will be conducted over the July/ August and September period (non continuous)
The main body of the IPR (draft and final version) must be limited to 30 pages, excluding annexes.
We are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified consultants. Please submit a 2 page EOI detailing how you meet the required profile, the methodology you would use, with your estimated number of days and typical daily rate.
