In May 2015, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded a five-year contract to Management Systems International (MSI) to provide performance management support to USAID-sponsored development programs throughout Pakistan. The Performance Management Support Contract (PERFORM) serves as a centralized management support mechanism that provides services in (1) monitoring, (2) evaluation, (3) assessment, and (4) learning support. PERFORM provides data and information to help USAID/Pakistan project managers improve results through better implementation, design, and learning, enabling it to better target its programming and achieve its goals and objectives.
MSI is seeking a Basic Education Specialist to support a mid-term evaluation of the USAID-funded Community Mobilization Program (CMP), implemented by International Relief and Development under USAID’s Sindh Basic Education Program. The evaluation will assess CMP outcomes and processes, focusing specifically on the following: (1) whether the community engagement approach of CMP has improved access to schooling, especially for girls; (2) the effectiveness and appropriateness of CMP approaches to engaging communities to improve access to schooling; (3) the effectiveness of the program’s strategies for education reform, including school consolidation and public private partnerships (EMO); and (4) the relevance and appropriateness of CMP targets for the remaining life of the project.
The evaluation will begin in June 2017 and conclude in November 2017. The anticipated level of effort for the Basic Education Specialist is approximately 50 days.
*Position will be filled on a rolling basis*
Only candidates who have been selected for an interview will be contacted. No phone calls, please.
