Consultancy: Knowledge Management and Research for Harmful Practices, Child Protection Section, PD - NYHQ, Req #531111

Fri, 10 Apr 2020 00:33:00 +0000

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 24 Apr 2020

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

BACKGROUND

UNICEF is committed to prevent and respond to Female Genital Mutilation under Goal Area 3 of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, most notably though the UNFPA/UNICEF Joint Programme to Eliminate Female Genital Mutilation: Accelerating Change, the largest global programme focused on accelerating the elimination of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in one generation. The Joint Programme supports holistic, integrated and multisectoral approach that supports community level social norms change; access to education, health care, welfare and legal services for girls and women at risk or affected by FGM; and the development and implementation of laws criminalizing FGM. Implementation of Phase III (2018 – 2021) of the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Program on Abandonment of FGM is well under way (year III) and the programme has extended its country-level interventions across 17 countries covering Africa and the Middle East.

A recent evaluation of the program found that numerous and important evidence gaps in the FGM field exist and currently hinder the ability of the Joint Programme to make informed strategic decisions. Assessment of the state of evidence and compiling new evidence is key in defining a research strategy for the sector. To enhance utilization of researched products and other policy documents, knowledge management capacity to produce, access, and distribute such knowledge products in various formats for global, regional and country use, while adhering to quality standards is required. In addition to implementing a more cohesive knowledge management and research strategy, another gap identified in the Evaluation has been the increasing involvement of health-care providers in performing FGM. The Prevention of Harmful Practices Team in Child Protection Section will need to seek linkages with health section to define immediately areas where synergies can be built with the health sector to address this phenomenon, otherwise known as medicalization of FGM. Also, the level of effort by governments in prevalent countries in addressing this issue and many others related to FGM needs to be understood.

PURPOSE

UNICEF (HQ NY) Child Protection is seeking services for a knowledge management and research consultant to support evidence gap analysis including level of effort by countries, knowledge management capacity, and definition of priorities in addressing medicalized FGM multisectorally.

SCOPE OF WORK

  • Knowledge Management Capacity and Sharing of Information
  • Produce, access, and distribute knowledge products in various formats for global, regional and country use, adhering to quality standards.
  • Maintain and engage all social media accounts for PHP and contribute to CP section wide social media activities.
  • Propose a systematic set of processes, platforms and mechanisms for collecting information, organizing lessons learned.
  • Support in setting up the standard of procedures (SOPs) to disseminate information about the programme to internal and external stakeholders, including organizing knowledge sharing events, maintaining communications on knowledge sharing across the organization, participation in orientation and training sessions.

  • Define, map and execute project processes and skills needed to develop content of knowledge sharing series into a set of final products.
  • Migrate current and existing public documents to the knowledge library being set up by the joint programme.
  • Consolidate disparate FGM info and relevant publications into the team site and quality assure before sharing.
  • Definition of priorities in addressing medicalized FGM
  • Develop a minimum of 2 case studies on Joint Programme response to medicalisation—each case study must include definition of the problem in context, what’s being done and good practices that can be replicated.

RFQ FY20 - 047 Reviewing & Developing Online Learning Solutions on Influencing

Thu, 09 Apr 2020 15:40:17 +0000

Organization: Plan International
Closing date: 30 Apr 2020

Background Information on Plan International

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Read more about Plan International's Global Strategy: 100 Million Reasons at https://plan-international.org/strategy

1. Terms of reference

1.1 Broad Purpose

Over the last 80 years, Plan International has maintained its commitment to making a lasting impact on the lives of the most vulnerable and excluded children. With the recent Global Strategy (2017-2022) and a common set of values and behaviors in mind; leaders, managers, staff, partners, children and young people participated in a robust process to transform the organization, to fulfil the promise of the 2030 Global Goals and strive for a just world that advances children's rights and equality for girls.

Plan’s new Global Strategy has put greater emphasis on influencing. As such, there is now an expectation on Plan Country Offices to scale-up, strengthen and for some introduce influencing for the first time into their Country Strategic Plan.

Plan International uses the term ‘influencing’ to describe the systematically planned, coordinated, and integrated range of research, policy, advocacy, public mobilization, strategic communications and partnership (financial and non-financial) activities that seek to change the behavior of one or more decision-makers to achieve development outcomes for children, and girls in particular.

Influencing is a multidisciplinary approach that involves a wide set of activities and areas. Therefore, it is essential for PLAN International’s colleagues to receive support in understanding and leveraging resources to implement influencing as perceived in our global approach to programmes and influencing to better deliver our Global Strategy.

Plan is shifting away from service delivery only and Plan’s new Programme and Influencing Approach aims to see Country Offices integrating programming and influencing together to deliver their Country Strategic Plans and the Global Strategy – as opposed to two distinct and siloed efforts. While influencing is not new for Plan – and there are a number of Country Offices leading the way on this – in many countries it is ad hoc and not worked off a strategic planning such as an influencing strategy that integrates different areas under the global approach to programmes and influencing.

The Policy and Advocacy department and the Learning and Development Department through its Upskilling working group, have been granted some funding up to the end of FY20 (June 2020) to develop and organize a number of identified online and offline upskilling solutions to support staff in Plan’s Country Offices across all regions to develop and strengthen their core influencing skills.

Plan’s National Policy and Advocacy Advisors organize a number of face-to-face and online support workshops and webinars on influencing across all fiscal years covered by the Global Strategy. However, due to the limited support capacity, the upskilling project has a strong emphasis on making knowledge, tools and resources available online in order to encourage and support remote and self-sufficient learning, which also provides a much-needed support. Plan aims to combine these online resources with the in-person training to create a blended learning approach, as a way to address the differing knowledge levels and allow staff to learn at their own pace.

Various learning content has been developed along these specific skill areas to build capacity and encourage consistent approaches to various influencing processes. In particular the following in PLAN ACADEMY:

Topics:

1. Introduction to influencing:

Details:Self-directed learning module that provides the basic information that Plan International colleagues should have in regard to influencing, with examples and evaluation.

It is aimed at all Plan International staff, but particularly to Country Offices colleagues and anyone working on influencing issues.

This module already exists and needs to be revised according to the reviews made during initial piloting

https://www.plan-academy.org/enrol/index.php...

Purpose of Consultation:

Consultation – review content with a mindset to identify key knowledge, skills and attitudes. Improving the current content so that activities are designed to best support these.

Support the course revisions based on feedback already received from the pilot phase.

Identify where content would best be provided as job aid to be used in the flow of work.

Develop Job Aids

2a. Creating an influencing Strategy Self-Directed:

Details:Support country office programmes and influencing staff on the best ways to proceed when drafting or reviewing their country strategy.

This module already exists as two Moodle courses and needs to be revised and piloted.

Course 1: Situation analysis & Power mapping

Course 2: From identifying your issue to developing your influencing strategy & plan

Purpose of Consultation:

Consultation – review content with a mindset to identify key knowledge, skills and attitudes. Improving the current content so that activities are designed to best support these.

Identify where content would best be provided as job aid to be used in the flow of work.

Develop Job Aids

2b. Creating and influencing Strategy- online cohorts:

Details: A facilitated, online, cohort course; that can be run multiple times each year. It consists of six weeks, and goes more in-depth into the details of each stage of the Influencing Cycle, and includes readings, online discussions and live webinars. The learner is asked to complete a task each week. Based on the self-directed module.

Purpose of Consultation:

Consultation – review content with a mindset to identify key knowledge, skills and attitudes. Improving the current content so that activities are designed to best support these.

Adopt content above in line with the online cohort methodology

Identify where content would best be provided as job aid to be used in the flow of work.

Develop Job Aids

While the content has largely been developed, this consultancy will support in reviewing, refining and designing various learning solutions on our learning platform the Plan Academy. (Totara 12) These learning solutions include: - Learning Solution: Technical Manual Description: While the content has been developed, this will involve migrating the content into a Technical Manual format, in a Plan International Influencing Identity template.

- Learning Solution: PowerPoint Presentation
Description: There is already a Power Point presentation that feeds the module, revising it and providing an improved and more appealing PowerPoint Presentation, that can be used to update the current one and also be used by others in a face-to-face training would be necessary. . This will need to be in a Plan International Influencing Identity template. Plan International will provide examples and other Power Points that may assist in making it.

Once these are finalized (in English, French and Spanish[1]) they are to be uploaded and updated in PLAN ACADEMY and leave the product ready to use.

RFQ FY20 – 046 Development of an organisational digital data collection model

Thu, 09 Apr 2020 15:07:32 +0000

Organization: Plan International
Closing date: 26 Apr 2020

Background Information on Plan International

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Development of an organisational digital data collection model - Requirements

Plan International works in over 50 low and middle-income countries across the world, principally in Africa, Asia and the Americas, to promote child rights and equality for girls. Plan International’s global strategy calls upon the organisation to harness the power of digital technology to transform the way we deliver outcomes for children, especially girls, and extend our reach and impact. A global priority for our next financial year (starting July 2020) is to use digital, data, and analytics to increase our impact and effectiveness.

To do so Plan International requires a holistic organisational approach on how to safely and effectively leverage digital data collection tools, including tools currently in use. At this time we have numerous offices collecting data independently, with little or no guidance from Global Hub regarding which tools meet organisational security standards, which are supported or interface with global systems, or how to securely manage digital data collection activities. As a result, we are missing out on opportunities and efficiencies arising from wide-scale use of digital data collection tools, as well as exposing ourselves to security risks.

Objectives

Our vision is to embed digital data collection (DDC) securely and consistently into the organisation, meeting the needs of the various stakeholders whilst realising the benefits in efficiency, speed, security and consistency that digitising data collection can bring. We also seek to benefit from economies of scale associated with using a small number of tools, rather than each office or function developing and / or procuring their own.

The following lays out the objectives for the consultancy:

  • Develop an organizational digital data collection model to guide the adoption and scaling of digital data collection (DDC) tools to support Plan International’s work across key use cases, building on ongoing work to leverage digital data collection within the organisation;
  • Propose a global governance framework for the model to ensure future direction, adoption, deployment and management of DDC tools are aligned to the overall needs and strategy of the organisation. This framework is foreseen to cover other digital tools as well;
  • Gather requirements for key use cases and conduct market scan of available tools;
  • Propose DDC tools that fit the model identified whilst meeting organisational needs and expectations and complying with all relevant standards, policies and processes, including the integration and interaction of collected data with other systems.
Scope

In scope:

  • Build on current initiatives that enable digital data collection (including specific tools) within Plan to propose an organisational model for the adoption and scaling of digital data collection tool usage. These include, for example, Program Y.O.D.A, Sponsorship development, DRM, and girl-led research projects.

o Review of existing documentation

o Key stakeholder interviews

  • Define and document current and future state digital data collection use cases and the associated technical requirements, with a focus on Sponsorship, MERL, DRM and Advocacy

o Review of existing documentation

o Key stakeholder interviews

  • Conduct market scan of available tools that fit the identified use cases, meet technical requirements, and comply with data protection standards
  • Review all relevant standards, policies, and processes identifying how they interlink with the proposed model and tools, and identify any gaps
  • Propose a global governance framework, including a governance body, for the adoption of digital data collection tools
  • Develop an appropriate and feasible business rationale for an organizational DDC model

Out of scope:

  • Process reviews of current digital data collection tools within Country Offices
  • Device management
  • Defining training to address skill and knowledge gaps
  • Defining cost of implementing proposed model

Requirements (to be met in full):

Outcomes:

Organisational digital data collection model

  • Building on ongoing DDC initiatives, establish a sustainable model to guide the adoption and scaled up use of digital data collection tools, that meets the various needs of the organisation, whilst ensuring that:
  • The stakeholders we work for and with are never put at risk as a result of collecting data through digital methods.
  • The reputation of Plan International is never put at risk and all necessary considerations, in particular data protection standards, are met when adopting digital data collection tools.
  • Plan International’s relevant data policy requirements are met (or exceeded) and the general principles from the GDPR and other data laws are adhered to, and a clear escalation and decision-making path to the governance body exists to facilitate timely adoption of digital data collection to support Plan International’s work.
  • The model needs to demonstrate flexibility to adapt to changing needs and technological developments

Governance framework for organisational DDC model

  • Through consultation with appropriate stakeholders, propose how the suggested model will be effectively and sustainably governed, defining clear roles and efficient decision-making and escalation paths

o Recommend roles and responsibilities that optimise the quality of the processes and clearly demonstrate segregation of duties

  • The governance framework to be considered for broader use (e.g. to decide on the adoption and management of other digital tools)

Tools for organizational DDC model

  • Define key use cases and their technical requirements;
  • Conduct market scan of available tools that fit the identified use cases, meet technical requirements, and comply with data protection standards;
  • Based on key use cases and ongoing initiatives, a proposal of digital data collection tools that fit the DDC model and meet business and operational needs.

Deliverables

  • Documentation on the above outcomes, including:

o An inception report setting out method and timeline and proposed engagement with named stakeholders in Plan

o A draft report submitted for two rounds of comments

o Final edited and proofread report setting out the proposed model and associated tools, and the proposed governance framework

  • Business rationale for change with regard to DDC tools’ use, management and supporting processes.
Methodology
  • Engage stakeholders as defined by the Project Lead and Steering Committee through interviews
  • Identify the As Is Environment for Digital Data Collection, including existing use cases, business and technical requirements
  • Review documentation pertaining to ongoing initiatives relevant to digital data collection
  • Define the To Be Environment for Digital Data Collection, including key use cases, existing business and technical requirements, based on organisational strategy, future-friendly use cases, business and technical requirements
  • Propose activities required to get from current to future state
  • Weekly meetings with the Project Lead
  • It is expected that tenderers will bring their own approach to the process to meet the ultimate needs. This should be set out in the inception report for approval by the Steering Committee
Project Lead and Steering Committee

The consultant (or consulting team) is expected to work closely throughout the process with the Project Lead and the project’s cross-functional Steering Committee, composed of Plan International staff from different regions and offices.

Special Notice

• This temporary job opening (TJO) is published for one position in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
• The appointment/assignment is until 31 December 2020 with the possibility of extension, subject to availability of funds and mandate extension. The selected candidate is expected to start as soon as possible.
• A current staff member who holds a fixed-term, permanent or continuing appointment may apply for temporary positions no more than one level above his or her current grade. However, a current staff member who holds an appointment at the G-6 or G-7 level may also apply to temporary positions in the Professional category up to and including the P-3 level, subject to meeting all eligibility and other requirements for the position. A staff member holding a temporary appointment shall be regarded as an external candidate when applying for other positions, and may apply for other temporary positions at any level, subject to section 5.7 below and staff rule 4.16 (b) (ii). Therefore, a staff member holding a temporary appointment in the General Service or related categories may only apply to positions within those categories. For full information on eligibility requirements, please refer to section 5 of ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1 on Temporary Appointments. In its resolution 66/234, the General Assembly further “stressed that the Secretary-General should not recur to the practice of temporarily filling posts in the Professional and higher categories with General Service staff members who have not passed the General Service to Professional category examination other than on an exceptional basis, and requests the Secretary-General to ensure that temporary occupation of such posts by the General Service staff shall not exceed a period of one year, effective 1 January 2013…” Consequently, eligible candidates in the General Service or related categories for temporary job openings in the Professional category that have not passed the competitive examination may be selected only on an exceptional basis endorsed by the Office of Human Resources Management where no other suitable candidate could be identified.
• Upon separation from service, including, but not limited to, expiration or termination of, or resignation from, a fixed-term, continuing or permanent appointment, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment on the basis of a temporary appointment for a period of 31 days following the separation. In the case of separation from service on retirement, a former staff member will be ineligible for re-employment for a period of three months following the separation. This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat.
• Retirees above the mandatory age of separation who wish to be considered for the current temporary job opening must indicate the reason for their last separation as "retirement." Such retirees shall not be employed by the Organization, unless (a) the operational requirements of the Organization cannot be met by staff members who are qualified and available to perform the required functions; and (b) the proposed employment would not adversely affect the career development or redeployment opportunities of other staff members and represents both a cost-effective and operationally sound solution to meet the needs of the service.
• Subject to the funding source of the position, this temporary job opening may be limited to candidates based at the duty station.
• While this temporary assignment may provide the successful applicant with an opportunity to gain new work experience, the selection for this position is for a limited period and has no bearing on the future incumbency of the post. An external candidate selected for this position is bound by the prevailing condition of the staff selection system under ST/AI/2010/3, as amended, and ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1. A staff member holding a temporary appointment who is recruited in the Professional and above categories on a temporary appointment, and placed on a position authorized for one year or longer may not apply for or be reappointed to his/her current position within six months of the end of his/her current service. This provision does not apply to staff members holding temporary appointments and placed on positions authorized for one year or more in duty stations authorized for peacekeeping operations or special political missions.
• The expression “Internal candidates”, shall mean staff members who have been recruited after a competitive examination under staff rule 4.16 or after the advice of a central review body under staff rule 4.15.
• Please note that candidates will be required to meet the requirements of Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter as well as the requirements of the position. The United Nations is committed to the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity for all its human resources, including but not limited to respect for international human rights and humanitarian law. Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to whether they have committed, or are alleged to have committed criminal offences and/or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.
• For information on special post allowance, please refer to ST/AI/1999/17. For more details on the administration of temporary appointments please refer to ST/AI/2010/4/Rev.1.
• The Staff Regulations, Staff Rules and administrative issuances governing staff appointments can be viewed at: http://www.un.org/hr_handbook/English
• Staff members of the United Nations common system organizations who will reach the mandatory age of separation or retirement within the duration of the current temporary need period are not eligible to apply.
• Staff members are not eligible to apply for the current temporary job opening if they are unable to serve the specified duration of temporary need before reaching the mandatory age of separation. Submitting an application or selection for the current temporary job opening does not delay or increase the mandatory age of separation.
IMPORTANT: Candidates found suitable and not selected for the announced duty station, may be selected for deployment to other duty stations. The selection will be for similar functions with similar requirements at the same level.

United Nations Considerations

According to article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations, the paramount consideration in the employment of the staff is the necessity of securing the highest standards of efficiency, competence, and integrity. Candidates will not be considered for employment with the United Nations if they have committed violations of international human rights law, violations of international humanitarian law, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or sexual harassment, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that they have been involved in the commission of any of these acts. The term “sexual exploitation” means any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another. The term “sexual abuse” means the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions. The term “sexual harassment” means any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offence or humiliation, when such conduct interferes with work, is made a condition of employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, and when the gravity of the conduct warrants the termination of the perpetrator’s working relationship. Candidates who have committed crimes other than minor traffic offences may not be considered for employment.
Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The United Nations places no restrictions on the eligibility of men and women to participate in any capacity and under conditions of equality in its principal and subsidiary organs. The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment.
