Two Analysts, Development Effectiveness Review (DER) of UNICEF, Remote


Two Analysts, Development Effectiveness Review (DER) of UNICEF, Remote

Social Impact (SI) is a Washington, DC-area international development management consulting firm. SI’s mission is to create dramatic improvements in the performance of organizations and programs working to enhance the social and economic well-being of people around the world. We provide a full range of management consulting, technical assistance, and training services to strengthen international development programs, organizations, and policies. We provide services globally in the areas of monitoring and evaluation, strategic planning, project and program design, organizational capacity building, and gender and social analysis. SI services cross-cut all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. SI’s clients include US government agencies such as USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the US Department of State, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and non-profits.

Proposal Objective:
The purpose of the Development Effectiveness Review (DER) is to generate a body of credible information on a common set of criteria that provides an insight into the development effectiveness of UNICEF. The review builds on information, in particular evaluation reports, which is already available from the organization. It applies methods that are modest in time and costs and is to be conducted with a limited burden on UNICEF. This DER will be the second in a series. The first was completed in 2013 by the Government of the Netherlands on behalf of the OECD countries. It covered the period 2009-2011. It is the objective of this DER to make comparisons with the first to see if UNICEF is maintaining its performance in areas rated satisfactory or better in the first exercise, as well as improving upon those where it was rated less well. The review entails conducting a systematic synthesis of information from available evaluations published in 2012-2015 as they relate to the criteria of development effectiveness. The analysis also includes a meta-analysis of the quality of the evaluations. This project is expected to take place over the course of six months between February 15 and August 15, 2016.

Position Description:
SI is seeking two short-term Analysts to support the Team Leader and the Senior Analyst in the completion of the review. The Analysts will assist in advising on the evaluation design and methodology, as well as synthesis and meta-analysis of the evaluations. They will work closely with the three team members, and will report to the Team Leader. The Analysts must be available throughout the period during which the review will be conducted (February 15th though August 15th, 2016). Work will be remotely-based.

Responsibilities:
• Under the supervision of the Team Leader and Senior Analyst, assist in the development of the evaluation methodology based on that developed by OECD/DAC Network on Development Evaluation.
• Lead data management, including statistical and quantitative analysis.
• Assist in the synthesis and meta-analysis of past evaluations by UNICEF’s Evaluation Office and other entities of UNICEF in order to support the Team Leader in the drafting and finalizing of the Inception and Final reports for the Evaluation Office of UNICEF/NY Headquarters.
• To the degree possible, use the same methodology as the first development effectiveness exercise, arrive at conclusions that can be directly compared with those of the earlier exercise, and check to see if there have been improvements along the lines implied by the findings.

Qualifications:
• A university degree in social sciences, humanities or economics.
• Knowledge of international development assistance.
• Knowledge of evaluation design and methodology.
• Experience with literature/document search and analysis.
• Good writing skills.
• Fluency in English, and /or French and/or other UN languages.
• Experience in data handling including the necessary statistical skills a plus.
• Thematic expertise in one of more of the following sectors desirable: health, education, HIV-AIDS, nutrition, WASH, child protection, or social policy.
• Cross-cutting expertise in Communication for Development, gender, rights-based/equity-based programs are also desirable.
• Programming and/or evaluation expertise in the diverse contexts in which UNICEF operates desired, including but not limited to the range extending from least development to middle-income countries; in fragile states and humanitarian contexts of different types of crises; and in distinct language/culture zones.
