EFCA KZ announces an open call for the selection of a final evaluation expert for the project GGIF/USAID

The call is open for Russian- and English-speaking experts in Kazakhstan as well as in other countries

The Good Governance Initiative Fund (GGIF) is a two-phased grant mechanism designed to increase the capacity of traditionally underserved and underrepresented Kazakh and Tajik CSOs outside of the capital cities to strategically plan, coordinate, and execute complex campaigns aimed at reforming the institutionalized delivery of services, public policy and legislation. The ultimate goal of the project is to promote institutionalized governance reforms which contribute to improved service delivery, public policy, legislation, or regulations. The project was launched in October 2014 and is expected to end in September 2018.

The Final Evaluation will assess the performance, management arrangements, monitoring and evaluation practices, and success of the project. The Evaluation process should examine the extent to which the GGIF funding mechanism contributed to governance reforms in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan and the potential impact of such reforms. The process should also assess GGIF’s contribution to grantee organizational capacity development.

Successes, challenges, and lessons learned documented during the evaluation process will be shared with relevant stakeholder groups and may be used by EFCA to improve grant-making, program management, and program development practices.

The final evaluation will mainly include activities held since the mid-term project evaluation, but may also refer to the activities since the project inception and will include all groups of grantees.

Key Deliverable: The final evaluation should result in an analytical report in English.
