Call for Proposals for Evaluation Services for Discovery Project

Call for Proposals for External Evaluator of Discovery Project 2:

Discovery Learning Alliance (DLA) is a non-profit organization using the power of media to transform education and improve lives in marginalized communities. Together with public and private sector partners, we are improving student learning and teacher effectiveness in the classroom, reaching millions through mass media distribution and empowering communities with transformative educational opportunities.

Building on evidence of impact, strong progress and partnerships to date, growing numbers of marginalized girls in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya will go to school, stay in school, and learn more as a result of the Discovery Project 2 (or DP2). They will continue acquiring the self-esteem, confidence, and key life skills to achieve functional literacy, numeracy and exam results enabling completion of primary and transition to secondary school. DLA will continue to foster an active enabling environment where peers, parents, mentors, teachers, local government and communities actively support girls’ educational aspirations. In this new environment and armed with the necessary academic and life skills, a growing number of marginalized girls will complete primary, transition, and progress through junior and senior secondary school successfully, with significantly enhanced life chances.

The project is seeking to procure the services of an independent External Evaluator to conduct a mixed-method, gender- and disability-sensitive evaluation of the DP2 over the next 3 years. The evaluation will assess the delivery, effectiveness, VfM and impact of the project and report the findings and lessons learnt throughout the process. The overall evaluation approach requires the Evaluation Team to design, plan and conduct a mixed-methods impact evaluation that is longitudinal in nature.

It is expected that the External Evaluator (EE) will produce three evaluations in Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria over the course of the project: a baseline, a midline, and an endline along with (overall 3-country reports) and commensurate tools and data sets.


Interested parties should send a request to the email address below for the full Terms of Reference and other relevant documents. Any queries regarding the ToR, MEL Framework, or any part of the solicitation can be directed to the following e-mail address: maitiu_oheigeartaigh@discovery.com.

Queries received after COB August 18, 2017 may not receive a timely response.


Submissions are due no later than COB (17:00 EDT) on August 31, 2017. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
