The Active Citizenship Grant
Deadline: August, 1, 2015
Oxfam has been awarded a 30-month grant for a project designed to promote economically, environmentally and socially responsible management of gas/petroleum resources in Ghana, Mozambique and Tanzania. This project is central to Oxfam’s mission to reduce poverty and empower poor people to take action on their own behalf.
A mid-term assessment will be conducted in September/October 2015 in Ghana, Tanzania and Mozambique. A baseline study was already conducted. This mid-term assessment will utilize the baseline methodology to conduct the assessment. Program activities began in July 2014 and will close December 2016.
The consultant will work with the Oxfam America Program Officer and a monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) staff member to agree on a final methodology within the budget constraints provided, finalize the set of key informants and stakeholders to interview and/or survey, the questionnaire or survey instrument questions, as appropriate, and to ensure the evaluation team has adequate access to relevant campaign documentation.
The consultant will then carry out the mid-term assessment, presenting early findings, and draft a final report to the Program Officer and MEL staff member, on a schedule to be agreed, for review and deliberation. This iterative review of preliminary and draft findings is intended to ensure that the final baseline fully meets the needs of the campaign leads and their teams, and that any methodological adjustments that may be warranted are identified early on in the data collection process.
The final mid-term assessment will be delivered after the draft findings have been reviewed and commented on, responding to any remaining questions or data analysis needs identified, and that can be accommodated within the established timeframes and budget.
Periodic project management meetings with the Program Officer will be held, as appropriate.
Please send a 3-4 page expression of interest with a brief description of the proposed approach and budget by August 1, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oxfam will contact applicants and arrange for phone interviews. Final selection will happen by mid-August 2015
