Rationale Purpose of the Evaluation

Plan International is seeking to procure the services of an Evaluation Team to design, plan and conduct a mixed-methods, gender-sensitive endline study and final evaluation for the BRICE project in Ethiopia and Somalia.

The purpose of the final evaluation is to assess the success of the project’s design, delivery and results[1] and explore reasons why change occurred for the beneficiaries and other project stakeholders. The final evaluation will also be forward-looking and will identify, document, and publish lessons learned and best practices for both accountability towards the donor, European Commission, and for informing future intervention models, management, and delivery approaches of Plan International and its partners.

Evaluation Criteria

The main focus of the evaluation is to demonstrate evidence on the achievement of outcome level change, their barriers and enablers, and the replicability of the model. As such the criteria of relevance, effectiveness and sustainability will be the key priorities.

In addition, when discussing findings, the consultants should bear in mind that this is the end line evaluation of this project, with about 12 months remaining up to the end of the project, (a 10-month No Cost Extension currently under discussion with the donor). However, most of the activities will be concluded by mid-2022.

Scope

This is an external final project evaluation to assess if the project met its objectives from March 2018 to December 2022 and will cover all outcomes of the BRiCE project, with particular attention the DAC criterion to coherence and synergies across components and participating agencies and partners. The evaluation will assess all key outcomes and outputs that have been produced since the start of the project. The evaluation will also assess the implementation of the recommendations made by the EU Results Oriented Monitoring missions and the mid-term evaluation recommendations.

The BRiCE project end in Somalia in February 2022 and has received a no cost extension for Ethiopia and the research component and will be extended by 10 months until December 2022. Therefore the evaluation will be divided into three phases according to the time when the project is closed: (Phase 1) a company will collect data in Somalia before RI closes everything, and the company is expected to complete it in February 2022. In the second phase, the company will be able to continue collecting data in Gambella/Ethiopia in the spring around June 2022 (before school closure). In the third phase, the company also will continue to collect data with Project UK, Sussex, research partners and PIE in the summer and fall of 2022. The detailed timetable is attached with this ToR.
