The purpose of this evaluation is to assess and learn from the process, achievements and challenges of the BPRM projects and advise on refugee resettlement process and mechanisms in future projects.
Evaluation Design and Methodology
The overall evaluation will be conducted by an external, independent consultant, serving as the team leader; with national consultants/assistants preferably in country. The consultant will be selected through an open tendering process and managed by UMCOR Headquarters and supported by UMCOR Field Office.
Technical proposals will include the key evaluation questions, budget and proposed clear schedule for the evaluation process.
The consultant team will develop a design and methods of the evaluation (including which methods will be used with each stakeholder group). The design should include:
·Desk review of the relevant documents;
·Interviews and questionnaires;
·Focus group discussions;
·Field observation; and
·Techniques, tools and instruments used for data collection.
The consultant is expected to produce a consolidated, quality report, which documents the good practices and lessons learned; differentiating findings, conclusions and recommendations. In addition to the report the consultancy shall submit data on methodology used, interview outlines, list of people interviewed /met etc.
UMCOR and the implementing partners (Govt) will conduct the dissemination of the findings and lessons learnt, which means the consultancy shall have no exclusive copyright of the report or the information that is used to compile the document.
The lead consultant will be contracted by and report to the Head of Mission. The Head of Mission, Project Manager, country office staff and engineers will act as the advisory group for the evaluation process. They will provide the necessary documents in addition to providing technical assistance (e.g. make in-country travel arrangements, assist in making appointments, assist in finalizing the program, avail any other documents and information needed etc.). The lead consultant will be responsible for managing the whole consultancy.
The consultancy will present the preliminary findings to UMCOR who will present the final report to partners, relevant government stakeholders, community leaders etc. in the national feedback forums. The project implementers are responsible for ensuring feedback to all stakeholders, who were involved in the evaluation.
The evaluation person/team shall document the results and impact of the projects and share learning and challenges among project implementers, partners and stakeholders. The five criteria set out by the project will be followed: effectiveness, impact, sustainability, efficiency and relevance.
·Assess the monitoring and advocacy strategies of the project: what kinds of systems/methods were used, if any.
·Assess to what extent the changes that have taken place can be attributed to the specific project in question and the synergies with other projects in the same geographic or thematic area.
·Identify lessons learned on the success/failure cases, innovation approaches, potential for replication and major challenges that can advise UMCOR in development of projects and particularly integration of sectoral projects.
