Project Objective

  • USAID/Nigeria has engaged the MEL Support Activity to conduct an external Midterm Performance Evaluation of an integrated health activity.

  • The primary purpose of this mid-term performance evaluation is to determine whether the assistance provided by USAID/Nigeria to beneficiary MSMEs through the Agriculture Extension and Advisory Services Activity is meeting the stated development objectives, and to understand the lessons learned from this Activity in Nigeria.  It is intended to provide an independent examination of the overall progress and accomplishments of the Activity.
  • The estimated start date will be August 15, 2022. The evaluation is expected to last until December 2022, and the estimated LOE will be 34 days, maximum.

Position Description

  • The National Evaluation Specialist will consult with the team and provide input to the deliverables throughout the duration of the evaluation.

Responsibilities

  • Contribute expertise and technical inputs to the work plan. Support the design of the evaluation, methodology, development of instruments, data collection, synthesis of data, presentations, and report.
  • Perform desk review and identify additional information required for analysis.
  • Schedule and interview key stakeholders and beneficiaries.
  • In consultation with the Team Leader, support team's ongoing analysis of qualitative and quantitative data.
  • Support the preparation and presentation of the Inbrief and Out-brief to USAID/Nigeria and other stakeholders as requested.
  • Write assigned sections of the draft Evaluation report in coordination with the team members, taking into consideration feedback from the Out-brief presentation.
  • Support the Team Leader to respond to USAID comments on the draft report and prepare a final report.
