Senior Data Officer for South Sudan

Country: South Sudan
Organization: IMPACT Initiatives
Closing date: 13 Jun 2022

BACKGROUND ON IMPACT AND REACH

REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts. REACH facilitates information management for aid actors through three complementary services: (a) need and situation assessments facilitated by REACH teams; (b) situation analysis using satellite imagery; (c) provision of related database and (web)-mapping facilities and expertise.

IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

We are currently looking for a Senior Data Officer to support our REACH team in South Sudan.

Department: REACH**

Position: Senior Data Officer

Contract duration: 6 months

Location: Juba, South Sudan

Starting Date: ASAP

COUNTRY PROFILE

IMPACT, through REACH, has been implementing programming in South Sudan since 2012. Responding to the Sudan Border Crisis, REACH initially engaged through coordinated information management support – in the form of refugee camp mapping and service provision analyses, thematic assessments, and multi-sectoral needs assessments – in Maban County, Upper Nile State and Pariang County, Unity State. IMPACT was engaged by DFID to provide a series of impact evaluations of their BRACE programming across Greater Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile States in 2013; a programme with run for two years, included 5 total assessments, and reached a total of more than 20,000 households. Immediately following the conflict of December 2013, REACH expanded its programming to include the IDP response, participating in Initial Rapid Needs.

Assessments of conflict affected areas, providing mapping and monthly service provision analyses for major IDP sites around the country, and running large-scale IDP return intentions assessments.

2018 saw the expansions of both IMPACT and REACH programming to 10 of 10 states, spanning the refugee, IDP and development responses, and covering diverse activities such as cross-border port monitoring, assessments of hard to reach areas, flood mapping and vulnerability analysis, market monitoring and supply chain analysis, analysis of tensions and conflicts over access to natural resources, and third party monitoring of humanitarian and development programming. In 2019, REACH expanded its role within the technical space, increasing involvement in Integrated Phase Classification (IPC), Needs Analysis Working Group, UN technical agencies, and academics. In response, REACH has also expanded into multiple new research cycle streams beyond humanitarian needs monitoring, including sector specific, population movement, and AAP research.

Broadly, REACH South Sudan implements assessments across three core units:

  • Monitoring of the humanitarian situation in South Sudan, through monthly assessments covering over 2,000 settlements in South Sudan, conducting an annual representative Multi Sector Needs Assessment to provide a snapshot of needs, and ad hoc rapid assessments in times of sudden escalations in conflict or natural disasters.
  • Monitoring population movement trends in South Sudan, including tracking and analyzing large-scale displacement, returns and seasonal movements, through port and road monitoring, ad-hoc assessments, and a population movement baseline; assessing the perceptions of affected populations of the humanitarian response; engaging with the protection cluster in identifying and filling major information gaps; and mainstreaming a context sensitive approach within REACH South Sudan.
  • Providing direct technical support to humanitarian clusters through active engagement with coordination bodies, dedicated assessments and information products, and strategic engagement to promote innovative methods towards understanding sector-related needs in South Sudan.

The Senior Data Officer would support across all three units and streams of work. More information on REACH’s work in South Sudan can be found here: https://www.reach-initiative.org/where-we-work/south-sudan/.

2. Background Information

2.1. About Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG)

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE)-funded Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG) is aligned with the priorities of the Federal Government of Somalia’s Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP 2018-2020). The overall objective is to increase access to quality education for more than 50,000 out-of-school children; enhance the quality of primary education; and improve the capacity of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MOECHE) at Federal/Member States to regulate and manage the education sector. The Federal Government of Somalia Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MoECHE) is implementing the grant in collaboration with the Federal Member States Ministries of Education in Jubaland State, South West State, Galmudug State, Hirshabelle State and Benadir regional administration with CARE as the grant agent and Concern Worldwide as sub-contractor.

The main objective of the ESPIG is to improve equitable access to and quality of education outcomes for all Somali primary school children through strengthened system capacity to design evidence-driven Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) reforms, and collaborate effectively with partners in their implementation. ESPIG was envisioned to maximize the potential of development investments in education in Somalia through the combination of four key principles:

  • Use of evidence-based approaches to address key gaps in access, learning and retention, and inform tailored efforts to reach marginalized groups;
  • Creation of conditions to implement solutions that address the intersection of multiple barriers to access, retention and learning;
  • Generation of synergies with privately managed schools/networks, development actors and the private sector to ensure complementarity of efforts and leverage existing capacity/ investment;
  • Capacity building of federal, state, regional and district-level actors for a cohesive, efficient and dynamic approach to the design and implementation of solutions.

The program’s five components are described below:

  • Equitable access to quality education will increase through changes in three intermediate outcomes: Increased access to education for out of school children; strengthened capacity of community education committees; and community actions towards improved school safety.
  • Enhanced quality of education, leading to grade-appropriate improved learning outcomes, will be achieved through the following intermediate outcomes: effective monitoring of teacher education and management policy, strengthened and harmonized efforts in teacher pre-service training; improved access to teaching and learning materials; and a strengthened assessment framework.
  • Enhanced system capacity to regulate and manage the education sector will emerge from the combination of the following intermediate outcomes: (i) strengthening regulatory and monitoring system for private, community and government schools and (ii) improved capacity of education officers for planning, budgeting, policy implementation, coordination and progress tracking.
  • Build a strong framework for program monitoring, accountability and communication, generating evidence to track progress, inform adaptive management and support planning and management processes.
  • Effective and efficient program management, embedded within government systems at local level and leveraging the grant agent’s capacity and experience in country and globally

2.2. Program beneficiaries

Direct program beneficiaries includes: (i) about 50,000 out-of-school poor or marginalized primary children who will benefit from school inclusion grants; (ii) about 600 Community Education Committees who will benefit from training to improve inclusion, security and learning at their schools; (iii) 6,570 teachers who will benefit from teaching guides associated to the new curriculum; (iv) 240 primary pre-service student teachers who will benefit from new teacher training institutes; (v) 2,000 teachers benefitting from tailored in-service teacher training; (vi) 297,168 grade 1-8 pupils who will receive textbooks linked to the new curriculum; (vii) 150 education officers will benefit from professional development to improve skills in planning, coordination and monitoring.

3. Objective of the Final Evaluation

The Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG) is seeking to procure the services of a consultancy company to conduct a final evaluation to assess the extent to which the stated objectives and ESPIG components were achieved (or not) in the project i.e. the extent to which the expected results of the ESPIG intervention have been achieved. The evaluation should generate relevant findings, lessons learned and recommendations to guide and inform on the best practices and strategies/approaches for improving other future phases and education programs. The final evaluation will have full participation of the project staff and key stakeholders.

3.1 Specific Objectives of the Final Evaluation

The consultant will critically evaluate the outputs and outcomes achieved under each component and how those have influenced the situation of target groups and beneficiaries. This will require critical examination of the individual activities to understand their contribution towards achievement of the results. The consultant is expected to reference changes in target groups, final beneficiaries and school conditions at the end of the project vis a vis the endline and baseline. The specific objective of the evaluation is to: “evaluate the outputs and outcomes achieved under each component and the project’s overall relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, validity of design, sustainability, factors affecting performance, alternative strategies and its strengths and weaknesses.

Closing date: 13 Jun 2022

BACKGROUND ON IMPACT AND REACH

REACH was born in 2010 as a joint initiative of two International NGOs (IMPACT Initiatives and ACTED) and the United Nations Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT). REACH’s purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of information products that enhance the humanitarian community’s decision making and planning capacity for emergency, reconstruction and development contexts. REACH facilitates information management for aid actors through three complementary services: (a) need and situation assessments facilitated by REACH teams; (b) situation analysis using satellite imagery; (c) provision of related database and (web)-mapping facilities and expertise.

IMPACT Initiatives is a humanitarian NGO, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The organisation manages several initiatives, including the REACH Initiative. The IMPACT team comprises specialists in data collection, management and analysis and GIS. IMPACT was launched at the initiative of ACTED, an international NGO whose headquarter is based in Paris and is present in thirty countries. The two organizations have a strong complementarity formalized in a global partnership, enabling IMPACT to benefit from ACTED’s operational support on its fields of intervention.

We are currently looking for a Senior Data Officer to support our REACH team in South Sudan.

Department: REACH**

Position: Senior Data Officer

Contract duration: 6 months

Location: Juba, South Sudan

Starting Date: ASAP

COUNTRY PROFILE

IMPACT, through REACH, has been implementing programming in South Sudan since 2012. Responding to the Sudan Border Crisis, REACH initially engaged through coordinated information management support – in the form of refugee camp mapping and service provision analyses, thematic assessments, and multi-sectoral needs assessments – in Maban County, Upper Nile State and Pariang County, Unity State. IMPACT was engaged by DFID to provide a series of impact evaluations of their BRACE programming across Greater Bahr el Ghazal and Upper Nile States in 2013; a programme with run for two years, included 5 total assessments, and reached a total of more than 20,000 households. Immediately following the conflict of December 2013, REACH expanded its programming to include the IDP response, participating in Initial Rapid Needs.

Assessments of conflict affected areas, providing mapping and monthly service provision analyses for major IDP sites around the country, and running large-scale IDP return intentions assessments.

2018 saw the expansions of both IMPACT and REACH programming to 10 of 10 states, spanning the refugee, IDP and development responses, and covering diverse activities such as cross-border port monitoring, assessments of hard to reach areas, flood mapping and vulnerability analysis, market monitoring and supply chain analysis, analysis of tensions and conflicts over access to natural resources, and third party monitoring of humanitarian and development programming. In 2019, REACH expanded its role within the technical space, increasing involvement in Integrated Phase Classification (IPC), Needs Analysis Working Group, UN technical agencies, and academics. In response, REACH has also expanded into multiple new research cycle streams beyond humanitarian needs monitoring, including sector specific, population movement, and AAP research.

Broadly, REACH South Sudan implements assessments across three core units:

  • Monitoring of the humanitarian situation in South Sudan, through monthly assessments covering over 2,000 settlements in South Sudan, conducting an annual representative Multi Sector Needs Assessment to provide a snapshot of needs, and ad hoc rapid assessments in times of sudden escalations in conflict or natural disasters.
  • Monitoring population movement trends in South Sudan, including tracking and analyzing large-scale displacement, returns and seasonal movements, through port and road monitoring, ad-hoc assessments, and a population movement baseline; assessing the perceptions of affected populations of the humanitarian response; engaging with the protection cluster in identifying and filling major information gaps; and mainstreaming a context sensitive approach within REACH South Sudan.
  • Providing direct technical support to humanitarian clusters through active engagement with coordination bodies, dedicated assessments and information products, and strategic engagement to promote innovative methods towards understanding sector-related needs in South Sudan.

The Senior Data Officer would support across all three units and streams of work. More information on REACH’s work in South Sudan can be found here: https://www.reach-initiative.org/where-we-work/south-sudan/.
