Terms of reference for a consultancy to write a Results Report for 2017 for the international work of Norwegian Association of Disabled (NAD)
Norwegian Association of Disabled (NAD) is an independent human rights organisation of disabled persons working for equal rights and full participation for persons with disabilities. NAD is a member of the Atlas Alliance (AA), which is an alliance consisting of Norwegian organisations of persons with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities that are involved in international work.
NAD is engaged in international development work to promote human rights, support inclusion and empower disabled persons to contribute actively to development processes. NAD has been involved in international development work since 1981 and have worked in several different countries, but mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa and in the Middle East. Currently we have 10 projects divided over 6 countries. We are engaged in strengthening Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs), the inclusion of disability into mainstream organisations and in Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR). Our main source of funding comes from Norad. In addition, we have funding from the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) and a private trust based in the UK.
NAD is currently in the third year of a four-year framework agreement with Norad, and this portfolio is approximately 22 million NOK a year. The SIU agreement for 2017 is 2,3 million NOK. Each project we has its own project document and results framework on which our partners work and deliver reports. We also report on an overarching AA results framework.
NAD is seeking to better show and report on our results to respond to Norad’s demands for improved results reporting. We would like to be able to show key results at project level as well as across the portfolio.
2. Purpose and Objectives of the Results Report
The purpose of the Consultancy is to produce a Results Report in English to highlight the main results achieved by NAD and its partners in 2017. The main audience of this report is our donors. The report is to be written with that in mind. The report will look at results achieved in 2017, but placed in the context of where we are coming from (baseline 2016) and where we want to go (our goals for 2019). The consultant should also as far as possible place the results within the SDG framework.
The objectives of the results report:
- To identify our most important results at project level as well as across the portfolio and to do a prioritized presentation of what NAD is proud of from the year that passed.
- To communicate the prioritized selection of results in an easy to read, non-jargon manner communicating the true value of those results for the reader.
- Highlight lessons to be learnt for NAD on how it can improve the annual reports from our partners in order to strengthen our overall reporting – i.e identify gaps in the content and methods of documentation.
The Consultant is free to suggest methodology; however, the report must provide evidence-based information that is credible, reliable and useful.
There is an expectation that the results report will be done through a combination of a desk study and interaction with NAD HQ and project staff, as outlined below:
- A review of key documents and narrative reports from partners
- A mini workshop with the NAD advisers at HQ
- Additional interviews with NAD Advisers at HQ, NAD staff in the projects and possibly selected partners
The following documents will be provided to the Consultant. Other relevant background documents can be added throughout the review period:
- Partner annual reports to NAD 2017, 2016, including narrative reports on project results and cross-cutting issues and project log frames
- Annual report to Norad from Atlas Alliance 2015 and 2016
- NAD’s annual reports to Atlas Alliance 2015 and 2016
- Atlas Alliance framework agreement with NORAD 2016-2019 agreement including the overall Atlas Alliance results framework
- International department strategy 2015 -2020 (currently under revision)
- The UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
4. Timeframe and work schedule
The Consultancy will take place for up to 10 days between the 12th March and 13th April 2018, whereas a day counts as 8 hours. A detailed timeline will be developed in collaboration between the Consultant and NAD and will form part of the contract.
5. Presentation of findings and reporting
The Consultant shall submit an inception report outlining a plan to produce the report, including timeframe and interview times, structure of the report and detailed budget after three working days in to the consultancy.
A draft report must be shared with NAD at the latest on the 3rd April. A final version must be sent to NAD by 16th April.
The final report should be no longer than 10 pages.
6. Statement regarding ownership and confidentiality
When undertaking the report all information and documentation are considered to be strictly confidential and the property of NAD. All information and documents are only used for the purpose of completing this assignment and therefore should be returned to NAD once the review is completed. The consultant shall be discrete about any information they may receive or encounter during the review.
The Results Report will belong to NAD only.
The total sum will be paid in two tranches directly by NAD:
1st instalment: paid out within a week after signing the contract (30%)
2nd instalment: paid out within a week of receipt of approved final report (70%)
The Consultant will be responsible for covering all costs related to their insurance.
7. Application Process
Applicants to submit a Proposal consisting of the following:
- Summary CV for Consultant (1-2 pages) including 3 references for similar/related assignments undertaken, if possible include examples of results reports prepared earlier.
- Technical proposal detailing out the methodology, and a rationale for why you consider yourself as the most suitable for the assignment (1-2 pages);
- Financial Proposal that indicates the overall contract price and all other related costs supported by a breakdown of costs.
Qualifications required from the Consultant:
- Fluency in English
- Strong communication and writing skills
- Experience with Results reporting
- Solid research and data collection skills
- More than 5 years of experience in project evaluation/results reporting/ M&E work
- Knowledge and understanding of the Sustainability Development Goals and the rights based approach to development
