Closing Date: February 28, 2013, 5:00 PM, Nepal Time
USAID/Nepal seeks the services of qualified organizations or individuals with expertise in monitoring and evaluating development projects to conduct mid-term evaluations (April-May 2013) for SPPELP operated by the Consortium of Elections and Political Processes Strengthening (CEPPS) and NPSP.
The evaluation team/s should tailor recommendations so that they can help in future programming for the Agency. The evaluation will provide direction that should improve achievement of results and also reduce the risk of unintended consequences. The evaluation team/s will also need to consider the external environment, project methodology, and the escalation of activities when assessing opportunities and threats. The focuses of the evaluations are defined by the evaluation questions in the Statements of Work (SOWs) for two separate evaluations.
The mission will negotiate compensation for this assignment. The successful candidate will be assigned under two Purchase Orders (POs) for the deliverables as described in the SOWs. If awarded, the consultant must complete the deliverables within the final negotiated cost and dates. If you are interested, please provide USAID/Nepal Office of Acquisition and Assistance with your proposal at your earliest opportunity, but no later than Thursday, February 28, 2013.
Your proposal should include the following:
- Current CV(s)
- Reference list, including most recent three assignments
- An expression of interest and your proposal to accomplish deliverables
- Proposed daily rate and documentation to support proposed rate and other associated costs such as travel, per diem etc.
Please visit the U.S. Government’s federal business opportunities website at fbo.gov for a detailed SOW, or use the following links:
Each SOW outlines what USAID/Nepal expects, to be accomplished; however, future minor adjustments may be incorporated. The final SOW will be included in the official purchase order. This solicitation in no way obligates USAID/Nepal to award a PO/Contract nor does it commit USAID/Nepal to pay any cost incurred in the preparation and submission of the proposal. Do not incur any expense or begin work until notified that a contract has been awarded to you, in writing, by the Executive Officer.
