Evaluation of Trócaire’s Irish Aid funded Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP)

Mon, 18 Jan 2021 02:16:47 +0000

Organization: Trócaire
Closing date: 14 Feb 2021

Trócaire requires an external evaluation to provide Trócaire with an independent, evidence-based assessment whether Trócaire’s Irish Aid funded Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP) achieved, or made progress towards, agreed objectives and so contributed to positive change in the lives of people affected by crisis. The evaluation should be guided by Irish Aid’s Guidelines on Partners Final Evaluations and in a manner which enables the lessons learned from the evaluation to inform Trócaire’s strategic decisions on future humanitarian programming.

Background to Consultancy

Irish Aid’s Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP) was designed to provide funding for humanitarian related interventions in situations of protracted, predictable and recurring crises. HPP is intended to address acute humanitarian needs in a way that builds resilience and lays the groundwork for sustainable development.

The overall goal of the HPP programme 2017 - 2022 is that “Lives are saved, suffering reduced and human dignity maintained and protected in humanitarian crises resulting from natural disasters and conflict situations”. Trócaire’s HPP programme is structured around a theory of change as expressed in a logic model outlining three long-term outcomes and a contributory intermediate outcome on partner capacity building which are all linked to Trócaire’s Humanitarian Policy & Strategy 2016-2020:

Outcome 4.1: Communities affected by crises receive timely, accountable and needs-based humanitarian assistance that protects their safety, dignity and fundamental human rights.

Outcome 4.2: Communities, particularly women, are better resourced to prepare for, withstand and recover from crises and disasters.

Outcome 4.3: The rights of crisis affected communities are articulated to shape humanitarian response and influence solutions to the root causes of the crisis.

Outcome 4.3.2: Humanitarian partners have improved technical and organisational capacity to advance the localisation of humanitarian response.

Trócaire is implementing HPP 2017 –2022 in eight countries, DRC, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Myanmar, Somalia, Sudan (South Kordofan), South Sudan and Uganda with an annual budget of approximately €4 million.

Scope of work

This evaluation represents an opportunity to assess whether Trócaire’s Irish Aid funded programming achieved, or made progress towards, agreed objectives and so contributed to positive change in the lives of people affected by crisis. The evaluation should be guided by Irish Aid’s Guidelines on Partners Final Evaluations and in a manner which enables the lessons learned from the evaluation to inform Trócaire’s strategic decisions on future humanitarian programming.

Methodology

The evaluation will focus on assessing Trócaire’s Irish Aid HPP funding implemented across HPP programme countries. The evaluator(s) will be expected to analyse a sample of the full programme through a desk and interview-based review. Two country programmes will subsequently be selected for field visits. The consultant will be expected to undertake interviews with staff, local partners, key stakeholders and programme participants.

The tender should outline an appropriate approaches and methodology to undertake the evaluation including appropriate consideration / contingencies (including potentially sub-contracting local data collection) for ongoing and possible future COVID-19 travel restrictions. It is broadly expected that the evaluation will be conducted in three phases:

  • Inception: The consultant(s) will carry out a desk review of relevant programme documentation including proposal, annual reports and results frameworks and reviews. This will be supplemented by interviews with Trócaire personnel involved in the design, implementation and monitoring of HPP.
  • Field investigation and validation: The second phase of the evaluation is expected to be comprised of in-country visit(s) to a sample of two country programmes in current receipt of HPP funding where relevant field work will be carried out.
  • Synthesis and feedback: The third phase of the evaluation will consist of any follow-up work with Trócaire prompted by the in-country visits, providing an initial draft report for discussion followed by a finalisation period.

Evaluation Questions

  1. To what extent did the programme respond to the needs of participants/beneficiaries in the evolving context?

  2. Is there evidence that anticipated results are being achieved at the current stage of the programme?

  3. To what extent did the organisation build institutional capacity of local partners?

  4. To what extent have Trócaire and partners demonstrated accountability to communities, partners and Irish Aid at all stages of the programme cycle.

Expected Outputs

  1. An ‘Inception Report’ following the first phase.
  2. A ‘draft evaluation report’ at synthesis and feedback stage.
  3. A final evaluation report at completion. The final evaluation report should be no longer than 20 pages, excluding annexes, and should include an executive summary and a set of recommendations for Trócaire’s programme.
  4. A de-briefing session with Trócaire country team and partners at the end of each field visit
  5. A de-briefing session with Trócaire at the inception and at finalisation stages.

Duration

40 effective days of consultancy engagement are estimated, and they should ideally be completed between the June 2021 to September 2021.

Minimum Requirements

  • >5 years’ experience in designing and conducting evaluations.
