WSUP seeks a Consultant to support an urban WASH sector functionality assessment process in 6 countries. Specifically, the Consultant will be required a) to finalise WSUP’s existing urban WASH sector functionality framework, creating rating scales for each of the 30 items of this framework; b) to lead assessment of urban WASH sector functionality in WSUP’s 6 focus countries (Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Zambia), through a process probably centred around 2-day in-country workshops, in early 2017 and late 2020, with a probable remote midterm assessment in late 2018 or early 2019; and c) in parallel with this process, to additionally assess WSUP’s contribution to any observed change in sector functionality at midterm and in 2020, as a key process of independent evaluation of WSUP’s performance under its grant from DFID 2016-2020.

Maximum total budget (inclusive of expenses and taxes including VAT) is GBP 140,000. This is necessarily an urgent procurement, with start-up in December 2016 likely to be necessary in order to be ready for the first in-country workshops planned for late February 2017.

Bid submission deadline is 1700 UK time on Friday 25 November 2016. Bid format has been designed to be relatively simple and non-onerous.

We are happy to respond to clarification queries: see TOR for details.
