of Swiss Church Aid’s Open Forum Programme
in Israel and Palestine
Purpose of the Consultancy
Swiss Church Aid (HEKS/EPER) seeks to procure the services of three consultants to design, plan and conduct a baseline study and a final impact evaluation of the Open Forum Programme in Israel and Palestine.
The team of three will be made up of one international lead consultant with extensive knowledge and experience in designing, planning, and conducting impact evaluations; and two national consultants with extensive knowledge and experience in designing, planning, and conducting data collections, as well as in-depth knowledge of the local context.
It is expected that the baseline study will be designed, planned and conducted in such a way as to facilitate the impact measurement at the end of the programme phase. The baseline study is anticipated to take place during April/May/June 2017, while the final impact evaluation is expected to take place during spring/summer 2020.
During the baseline study phase of the consultancy, the consultants will also be required to support the Programme Management Team in refining and implementing the monitoring system in order to facilitate the implementation of the baseline study and the final impact evaluation.
