Operational support for USAID-Feed The Future (FTF) Partners’ Projects –Jan-March 2014 Support IWMI to take on additional responsibilities in the monitoring and evaluation of the USAID Feed the Future Partners’ projects funded under the CGIAR/IWMI mechanism (i.e. IWMI/ReSAKSS, CCARDESA, SADC-RAP, SADC-SEED, FANRPAN, and ReNAPRI); and to collaborate with USAID Southern Africa and the grantee partners in the following areas:
(i) Combined WorkPlan and Budget Development;
(ii) Grant/Project Monitoring and Evaluation; and
(iii) Combined quarterly and annual reporting.
USAID would like Grantee and IWMI-SA workplans to be more focused and include a results framework with a specific food security goal; and a monitoring and evaluation plan that identifies indicators required to capture the results and impacts of all activities being implemented.
IWMI/ReSAKSS-SA would like to, specifically, contract an M&E consultant to handle this task. Specifically the M&E consultant will liaise with the partners to operationalize the combined FTF workplan and budget for FY2013-14; develop a monitoring plan and indicators in line with the FTF indicators; prepare combined monthly, quarterly and annual reports for all partners and submit to USAID Southern Africa.
