NRC: INVITATION TO BID for CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR PROGRAMME EVALUATION FOR THE LEBANON PROTECTION CONSORTIUM (LPC) - Ref:20-BEI-0007 / PR8100200
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across 31 countries, where we provide camp management, food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education. Today, a record 70.8 million people are fleeing war and persecution. Not since World War Two have more people needed our help. The Norwegian Refugee Council assisted over 8.5 million people worldwide in 2018, and with your support, we can help even more.
NRC is requesting competitive proposals from qualified firms or individual consultants, registered in their respective countries as LTD or Sole-Traders, interested in conducting an evaluation of the Lebanon protection Consortium (LPC) programme. The main purpose of the evaluation is to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of the LPC programme and generate recommendations to inform future implementation. In addition, the evaluation should be an opportunity for NRC and partners to be accountable to beneficiaries, donors and other stakeholders.
The LPC with funding from ECHO responds to the protection needs of Syrian and Palestinian refugees, and other vulnerable groups in Lebanon. The protracted Syrian refugee crisis has been at the centre of the LPC humanitarian assistance. The LPC was initially established to respond to the ECHO Humanitarian Implementation Plan (HIP) 2018, to enhance evidenced-based analysis, programming and advocacy. The consortium consists of three Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs); Action Against Hunger (ACF), WeWorld Gruppo di Volontariato Civile (GVC) and Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).. The LPC utilizes a multi-sectorial approach to respond to the needs of Syrian and Palestinian refugees, and other vulnerable groups in Lebanon. Through a multifaceted approach, the LPC’s interventions are provided at both community and household levels. The LPC’s community intervention is modelled around a Community Protection Approach (CPA), a methodology that engages community members in developing an in-depth analysis of causes, consequences and coping strategies related to the community’s main problems, and designing the most appropriate response. The CPA uses a mix of quantitative and qualitative data collection techniques.
To answer the evaluation questions, NRC would like the evaluator to submit a study design and/or methodology with an emphasis on participatory approaches to solicit findings from communities more broadly. A mix of qualitative and quantitative approaches that generate the most evidence can be proposed In particular, we are seeking an evaluator experienced in participatory evaluations, theories of change and with demonstrable experience of refugee protection evaluations.
