WSUP seeks a consultant to support an urban WASH sector functionality assessment process in six 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 six focus countries (Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Zambia), through a process probably centred around two-day in-country workshops in early 2017 and late 2020, with a probable remote mid-term 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 mid-term 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 160,000. This is necessarily an urgent procurement, with start-up in January/early February 2017 necessary in order to be ready for the first in-country workshops planned for March 2017.
