Switzerland: Consultancy – Multi-Country Evaluation Specialist Consultant, 11.5 months, Istanbul, Turkey

 FULL TIME  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy – Multi-Country Evaluation Specialist Consultant, 11.5 months, Istanbul, Turkey
Oct 262018
 

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 14 Nov 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

Background:

These Terms of Reference (TOR) are for the contracting of an external consultant to support evaluation capacity strengthening in UNICEF Country Offices (CO) in Europe and Central Asia (ECA) for the planning, management and implementation of UNICEF supported project/programme/thematic evaluations in the ECA region planned to start in 2019.

These TORs were prepared by the UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia in consultation with the Office of Evaluation. The purpose of the TOR is twofold. Firstly, it provides key information to the Evaluation Consultant on the subject of planned evaluations. Secondly, it describes the scope of the work to be undertaken, key duties and responsibilities and the required skills and capabilities.

Evaluations in UNICEF are being commissioned for the following reasons:

UNICEF’s revised Evaluation Policy 2018 places a strong focus on UNICEF Evaluation function and requires UNICEF country offices to implement three evaluation over a period of 5 years. For COs with large programmes the requirement is set at one evaluation completed per annum. The responsibility for managing evaluations at country level rests with the Country Offices. Most of the COs in ECA region are relatively small and evaluation capacity is constrained. In the short/medium term, lacking adequate staff capacity, additional evaluation management expertise is needed.

Evaluations in UNICEF are commissioned and implemented with the objective to analyse the level of achievement of both expected and unexpected results by examining the results chain, processes, contextual factors and causality using such appropriate criteria as relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability. Evaluations are expected to provide credible, useful evidence-based information that enables the timely incorporation of its findings, recommendations and lessons into the decision-making processes of organizations and stakeholders.

The UNICEF evaluation function is necessary to help guide the work of UNICEF in the coming years as its strategic plans are rolled out in support of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially for course corrections – and to inform Government policies and strategies designed to reach the SDGs and reduce equity gaps for children.

How can you make a difference?

    Switzerland: Consultancy – Country Programme Evaluation Manager Consultant, 11.5 months, Geneva (Remote home-based could be negotiated) with travel to countries in Europe and Central Asia

     FULL TIME  Comments Off on Switzerland: Consultancy – Country Programme Evaluation Manager Consultant, 11.5 months, Geneva (Remote home-based could be negotiated) with travel to countries in Europe and Central Asia
    Oct 262018
     

    Organization: UN Children’s Fund
    Country: Switzerland
    Closing date: 07 Nov 2018

    UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

    Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

    And we never give up.

    Background

    These Terms of Reference (TOR) are for the contracting of an external consultant evaluation manager (EM) for the management of UNICEF Country Programme Evaluations in the ECA region planned to start in 2019.

    These TOR were prepared by the UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia in consultation with the Office of Evaluation. The purpose of the TOR is twofold. Firstly, it provides key information to the EM on the subject of planned evaluations. Secondly, it describes the scope of the work to be undertaken, key duties and responsibilities and the required skills and capabilities.

    The evaluation is being commissioned for the following reasons:

    UNICEF’s revised Evaluation Policy 2018 requires Country Programme Evaluations (CPEs) on a periodic basis. The responsibility for managing CPEs rests with the Regional Office. In the short/medium term, lacking adequate staff capacity, additional evaluation management expertise is needed.

    Country Programme Evaluations (CPEs) are meant to examine the overall performance of UNICEF’s technical/cooperation assistance to Governments over a specific period (typically 5 years) towards the progressive realization of child rights in the country. They provide evaluative insights and strategic advice to UNICEF management on the future direction of the country programme. While CPEs may be conducted at any point in the programming cycle, they are often most useful in the period leading into the development of new country strategies.

    How can you make a difference?

    Objectives of the Assignment:

    The main objective of this assignment is to support the Regional Advisor for Evaluation and Representatives of UNICEF Country Offices to plan, implement and disseminate high quality useful Country Programme Evaluations in the ECA Region, contributing to global guidance on the conduct of CPE.

  • To support UNICEF country management to ensure that the management response sufficiently responds to the evaluation recommendations and the evaluation findings are disseminated and opportunities for use of the findings are identified.
  • Duties and responsibilities:

    To achieve the objectives of this assignment, the EM will manage evaluation processes and budgets from preparation and design through to completion to ensure the production of independent, credible evidence that meets high professional standards in line with UN norms and standards and codes of conduct for evaluation in the UN system, embodied in UNICEF’s evaluation standards.
