This example of a Request for Proposal (RFP) from the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is for a joint evaluation of HIV-related capacity development initiatives on young key populations in Asia and the Pacific.
"The purpose of this formative evaluation is to inform decision-making and provide evidence-based inputs for the deliberations of the Inter-Agency Task Team on Young Key Populations (IATT on YKP) on how to strengthen and sustain current HIV-related capacity development initiatives on young key populations in the Asia-Pacific region.
The main objectives of the evaluation are to (i) ascertain the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of a variety of capacity development initiatives spearheaded by the task team during 2010-2014; (ii) clarify the strategic role of the IATT on YKP vis-à-vis governments and other development partners in providing capacity development-related support at regional and country levels; (iii) provide conclusions and actionable recommendations that can shape future programming for/with young key populations in the Asia-Pacific region.
On behalf of the members of the IATT on YKP, the UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia seeks proposals from qualified consultancy firms to conduct the joint evaluation described in these terms of reference. The contract will be issued in 2014 with an expectation that the evaluation will be finalized by September 2015."
