Consultancy - Development of a Programme monitoring Tool Kit
New York City | Washington D.C
UNICEF is in the process of enhancing Results-Based Management (RBM) across all levels of the organization. A number of initiatives, such as development of an e-learning and face-to-face course on RBM, a requirement to develop Strategy Notes prior to development of Country Programme Documents, have been instituted to support application of RBM principles in UNICEF's programming. To further strengthen guidance on programme monitoring, Field Results Group (FRG), is developing a Programme Monitoring Tool Kit that offers a compendium of tools and methods to draw upon to facilitate programme monitoring. The Programme monitoring Tool Kit will be a repository of methods/approaches/protocols* for programme monitoring in programme areas related to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UNICEF specific programmes in child survival and development, education, child protection, youth and adolescents, social inclusion, C4D and policy advocacy. The Programme Monitoring Tool Kit will be a resource for both UNICEF staff and partners including governments.
*Programme Monitoring tools/methods such as mTrac, EduTrac, mVRS, participatory Community Monitoring, meetings, field visits, focus group discussions, etc.
Scope of work
The assignment will entail the development of a Programme Monitoring Tool Kit. The tool kit will capacitate UNICEF staff and their counterparts, through a reference user friendly tool, in effectively monitoring programmes, projects, interventions and policies.
In the programme monitoring tool kit, the consultant/consulting firm will flesh out a range of methods and approaches that can be used in both development and humanitarian contexts. Methods and approaches applicable to both low income countries, with mostly service delivery focused programmes, and those in middle/high income countries, with mostly upstream programmes, will also be included.
Through the tool kit, UNICEF staff and their counterparts will have access to different monitoring tools and methods described step-by-step on how to use them, with at least one example for each method/approach, on how it has been applied in the field.
Through this assignment, the consultant/firm will address the lack of a single repository of methods/tools/protocols for programme monitoring in UNICEF's areas of work. As such, the Programme Monitoring Tool Kit will provide a repository of the most commonly used tools and methods for monitoring UNICEF areas of work. The tool kit will provide a single repository where these tools are explained in detail on how to use them, with examples on how they have been applied in the field.
The Consultant/Consulting Firm will:
