CAMRIS International implements USAID’s Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Activity, a five-year project in Nepal. MEL Activity supports the achievement of USAID/Nepal’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) Development Objectives (DOs) by assisting the Mission in planning, designing, conducting, disseminating, and learning from more rigorous monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of development activities. USAID/Nepal uses the products and deliverables from the MEL activity to (a) facilitate informed program management, (b) shape the long-term strategic direction of programs and decision-making within the Mission, and (c) enable USAID/Nepal to comply with Agency accountability and M&E requirements.
The MEL Activity has three major components:
Under component one, the MEL Activity supports USAID/Nepal in strengthening the capacity of the Mission and its Implementing Partners (IPs) to conduct M&E tasks and use data efficiently. Capacity building on various MEL related topics is one of the major tasks of the MEL Activity. Within capacity building tasks, MEL Activity has been conducting a series of MEL skills related training to the Mission and its IP’s staff. Based on the capacity building and training plan and feedback received from the various trainings and annual MEL survey, the MEL Activity has updated its capacity building and training plan for 2018, where number of trainings is planned in various areas of MEL.
To support the implementation of its current capacity building and training plan, MEL Activity seeks trainer/facilitator for the following trainings through 2019 and 2020:
The duration of the proposed trainings vary – generally from one to two days each. Each training will be conducted on various dates. The MEL Activity will maintain a roster of the experts and plans to consult them at least two months prior to the training.
The selected trainer/ facilitator (expert – consultant) will be responsible to work with the Learning and Capacity Building Specialist (LCBS) at MEL Activity to develop or revise the detailed schedule, curriculum, and design methodology to facilitate the course. So, each consultancy service will be a short-term assignment ranging from minimum one to four weeks.
Interested experts may apply indicating which specific aforementioned training topic they are offering their consultancy service on the subject line for each of the topics they are interested in. A consultant can indicate specifiec area of expertise for more than one subject and training topics.
