Expression of Interest - External Evaluator for multi-year DFID GEC LNGB project

Link Community Development International are seeking Expressions of Interest from relevant parties to take on the role of External Evaluator for a DFID (Department for International Development) funded, ‘Girls' Education Challenge’ (GEC) initiative through the ‘Leave No Girl Behind’ (LNGB) funding window. Successful candidates will then be invited to tender a full proposal in line with the attached ToR.

The 5-year project, entitled ‘Transformational Empowerment of Adolescent Marginalised Girls in Malawi’ or ‘TEAM Girl Malawi’, will be implemented through Link Community Development International’s partners in Malawi addressing the social, cultural, economic (and other) barriers to education.

The GEC-LNGB requirements for reliable and credible data collection, analysis and findings are technically challenging given the characteristics of the target group, the project operational environments and the type and standard of evidence (particularly evidence of additional impact) that projects are required to deliver. This type of evaluation work requires high quality, specialist evaluation, research expertise and experience.

The primary responsibilities of the external evaluator are to develop fieldwork plans and research tools, pilot and adapt those tools, collect and analyse data on outcomes and intermediate outcomes, and present these findings in a report to the Fund Manager with associated data.

Interested candidates should submit an Expression of Interest.

The EOI must include:

  • Detailed description of how the applicant meets the above profile
  • A detailed track record, including details of other organisations for whom work has been completed
  • Two examples of relevant previous work
  • And be no more than 5 pages 

Proposals should be addressed “Expression of Interest for LCDI LNGB External Evaluator” and sent for the attention of Graham Niven, TEAM Project Coordinator, by latest 5pm on Wednesday 14th November 2018.  E-mail Address: graham@lcd.org.uk

We will review all Expressions of Interest and notify 5 successful candidates who will then be invited to tender a fully costed proposal in accordance with the attached ToR. Submission deadline for this will be 5pm on 3rd December. These will be reviewed and further shortlisted to interviews before contracting in mid-December 2018.

Eligibility will be determined in accordance with the criteria set out in Table 5 of page 35 of the attached GEC LNGB Recipient Handbook pertaining to evaluation criteria and weighting.

Applicants should refer to the following documents:

Expressions of Interest - External Evaluator of TEAM Girl Malawi

TOR for MEL External Evaluator of TEAM Girl Malawi

LNGB TEAM Girl Malawi - Theory of Change

GEC LNGB Grant Recipient Handbook

LNGB MEL Guidance
