Reporting to: HoM

Supervision of: field teams and PM assistant

Dependents: Non-family Duty Station /non-accompanied

General context of the project

Since gaining independence from Sudan on July 9, 2011, South Sudan has confronted a number of humanitarian challenges, including population movements and returnee integration. In the two and a half years since people of South Sudanese origin began returning from Sudan on a large scale directly before and after independence, vulnerable communities in South Sudan have struggled to accommodate more than 700,000 new arrivals, many of whom are rebuilding lives and livelihoods with few resources from which to draw. Inter-communal violence and general insecurity also persist in several parts of the country, particularly in Jonglei State, where fighting has led to significant displacement and deteriorating humanitarian conditions.

Lingering effects from more than 20 years of north-south conflict, poverty, and continued tension with Sudan, which led to a cessation of oil exports in 2012 that damaged South Sudan’s economy, compound the humanitarian situation. Confronting deteriorating economic conditions, populations are less able to cope with shocks and increasingly rely on the humanitarian community for basic food and non-food assistance. However, insecurity, bureaucratic harassment of relief organizations, logistical challenges, and Government of the Republic of South Sudan-imposed restrictions constrain humanitarian activities across the country, hindering the delivery of critical assistance to populations in need. The Country has then seen a prolonged period of instability resulting from a failed then stalled peace process.

Country: South Sudan
Organization: Montrose
Closing date: 31 Dec 2020

Montrose is an international development project management and consultancy company providing support to clients operating in the developing world. Specialised in the sectors of health, education, rural livelihoods and private sector development, our clients include bilateral and multilateral development agencies, the private sector, Non-Governmental Organisations and other development stakeholders.

Background

Montrose is part of the consortium led by Mott MacDonald, and also comprising BBC Media Action, Windle Trust, and Leonard Cheshire, is implementing the second phase of the Girls’ Education South Sudan (GESS 2) programme between 2019 and 2024. GESS 2, which is part of DFID South Sudan’s Essential Services Team portfolio, builds on the success of GESS 1 (2013-18). The overall goal of GESS 2 is to transform the life chances of a generation of South Sudanese children (particularly but not exclusively girls) through education, while stabilising priority areas of the education sector and concurrently seeking to deliver improved quality education. At outcome level, the programme will seek to improve girls’ educational attainment from that already achieved during GESS 1; building further gains on school enrolment, reducing barriers to education, and promoting equity in access for all children.

Therefore, the GESS 2 programme outputs include

  • Output 1) Community Mobilisation and Behavioural Change – communication and radio programmes informing over 2.5million people of the benefits of education to girls and disabled children. Active twitter and blog accounts, in addition to holding high-profile events in the UK and South Sudan. Community and school-based groups to tackle the root cause of Sexual and Gender Based Violence.
  • Output 2) Cash transfers to girls, conditional upon a girl’s enrolment and attendance in school. All girls from Primary 5- 8 and Secondary 1- 4 will be targeted over the lifetime of GESS 2. The supplier will be required to rigorously monitor girls who have already been validated to receive Cash Transfers during the early stages of the programme.
  • Output 3) Capitation grants to schools: All not-for-profit schools in South Sudan which are able to provide budgets and accountability will receive capitation grants. Capitation grant funding made available by DFID (through GESS 2) will be used to pay secondary schools, and capitation grant funding made available by the Government of the Republic of South Sudan (GRSS)) will be used to pay primary schools. GESS 2 will reach a minimum of 4,100 unique primary schools and 350 unique secondary schools with capitation grants.
  • Output 4) Learning Groups/Quality of Education & Resilience – Support to teachers and education managers to improve learning quality and pupil attainment. This is divided into four sub-components including:
    • Teacher professional development (including training, and SLPs)
    • Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP), including emphasis on functional literacy, numeracy, and life skills
    • School based girls mentoring programme
    • School governance improvement, including training and support to national, state, country, and payam MoGEI officials, and SMCs/PTAs
  • Output 5) Building a knowledge base for support to girls’ education, including use of the Schools’ Attendance Monitoring System (SAMS), with daily reporting of teacher and pupil attendance by (wherever possible) text messages from mobile phones (SMS) (complementary to the GRSS Education Management Information System [EMIS), and further academic research into the barriers and solutions to girls and disabled children’s education in South Sudan.

All outputs integrate the cross-cutting themes of Disability, Gender, Safeguarding, Conflict Sensitivity and Value for Money (VfM) in their delivery. Whilst the core management consortium of GESS2 comprises Mott MacDonald, BBC Media Action, Leonard Cheshire, Windle Trust, and Montrose, the delivery of services on the ground across South Sudan will be carried out by subcontracted implementing partner NGOs in each of the 10 formers states. These organisations will be in place before the end of 2019 and are referred to as the ‘Regional Anchors’. They have a ToR which comprises elements of all five GESS2 outputs listed above, and lead in delivery of all five outputs at sub-national level.

Overview of Montrose’s Scope of Work for the Client

Montrose leads in the delivery of Output 5 and contributes to the delivery of Output 4. The following tasks have been identified for this technical engagement under each of these outputs in the phase shown below.

Phase 2 – Implementation phase (August 2019-March 2024)

This phase will span a duration of 4 years and 10 months and will comprise two contractual break points scheduled 12 months and 36 months after the contract start date to review implementation phase performance.

During the implementation phase, Montrose shall contribute and or be responsible for producing the following deliverables per output.

Output 5 specific deliverables – timelines to be agreed with Mott MacDonald:

  • Work with the Director for Research in the Directorate of Planning and Budgeting to strengthen capacity in MoGEI for evidence-based policy formulation and resource allocation
  • Establish a research advisory group from the consortium, government, and local and international academic institutions to draw in multi-disciplinary expertise and country knowledge. Specifically, the consultant is to work with but is not limited to working with Knowledge, Evaluation, Research and Learning (KERL) Technical Working Group (TWG) and temporary taskforce teams[1]. The KERL TWG will have three standing sub-technical working groups for focused meetings and engagement whose members will be drawn based on interests and technical expertise. The sub WGs shall include: (1) Data and Statistics Technical Working Group; (2) Research Technical Working Group; and (3) Learning Outcomes Assessments Technical Working Group. Taskforce teams
  • Share research findings in an attractive and accessible format
  • Conduct two evaluation studies. A midline in Year 3 and an endline study in Year 5 of the project
  • Conduct annual learning assessments. GESS 1 endline findings are to be used as the GESS 2 baseline values.
  • Complete 17 qualitative or mixed methods research studies that are to be determined and further refined based on consultations with the GESS 2 Research Advisory Group. During preliminary consultations at the GESS 2 programme opening meeting, Montrose proposed the following:
    • Two research studies will be conducted by BBC Media Action in the form of photovoice research studies with communities to help understand the impact of GESS 2 activities.
    • Three research studies on disability inclusion, including a scoping study focusing on the current level of inclusion of children with disabilities in education, will be conducted by Leonard Cheshire. However, this is yet to be confirmed.
    • 12 research studies will potentially cover topics such as an operational analysis of the Schools’ Attendance Monitoring system (SAMS); and qualitative studies on the effectiveness of GESS 2 activities on the quality learning, for instance use of teaching and learning materials (TLMs), teacher-student time on task, and effectiveness of ALP in improving the literacy of students, among other things. A research coordination matrix was developed following consultations from each output lead. This shall guide the main research agenda for the programme.

All research should be informed by education sector priorities.

Output 4 specific deliverables – as agreed with Mott MacDonald:

  • Contribute to developing low cost teaching materials and scripted lesson plans for upper primary (P5 to P8) and secondary (S1 to S4) under the Teacher Professional Development component of this output. Target is 2,500 teachers.
  • Support the refining and rolling out of the ALP and potentially proposing the development of two types of ALP for South Sudan – a ‘normal curriculum’, for delivery in existing schools as evening classes (as per current policy), and a ‘pastoralist curriculum’, specifically tailored to nomadic/pastoralist communities, as is used in Karamoja in Uganda, for example. Target is 50,000 learners in total.
  • Contribute to the Girls’ mentoring programme targeting 70,000 learners. A barrier encountered was lack of female teachers in many schools, and therefore a lack of suitable mentors. If required, Montrose shall offer disability inclusion expertise drawn from its current evaluation work with the Girls’ Education Challenge project in Uganda that aim to improve the life chances of girls with disabilities (GWDs) in Kampala.

Montrose shall also contribute and or be responsible for producing the Forecast and Expenditure reports; Activity Reports, and the Risk Register on a monthly basis; Asset Register bi-annually; detailed progress reports both quarterly and annually; annual audit reports; quarterly VFM reports; and an Exit/Transition Strategy nine months before the end of programme.

CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR SIMILAR OFFERS

Country: South Sudan
Organization: DAI Global
Closing date: 1 Jul 2020

Project Background

The five-year (2019 – 2024) USAID-funded Feed the Future Policy Leadership, Interactions, Networks and Knowledge (Policy LINK) project implemented by DAI Global LLC will strengthen the capacity of local actors and institutions to lead and manage the agricultural transformation process and contribute effectively and collectively to improved, broad-based food security policy outcomes.

Specifically, the program aims to strengthen food security policy systems by investing in and reinforcing productive human and social capital and developing strategic partnerships that help bring these innovations and capacity investments to scale in order to achieve a critical mass of local actors with the ability and opportunity to effect positive policy change through collective action.

Policy LINK in South Sudan

The LINK project will open an office in Juba, South Sudan in order to provide backbone support to the Partnership for Recovery and Resilience (PfRR). PfRR is an unprecedented cross-sector, multi-donor, multi-agency platform and collective of partners established to increase the agency of local populations in select geographic areas to identify and respond to their priority needs for building resilience and reducing vulnerability. With this approach, the community, local governments, and donor agencies are improving their use of evidence to inform joint decision making at local, national, regional and global levels; however, the central focus is to strengthen the community’s ability to withstand and respond to shocks, including environmental, economic, political and those related to local conflicts.

The PfRR is grounded in the concepts of collective impact and collaborative governance. It intends to reduce the humanitarian burden in the targeted communities and make the use of donor resources more effectively by promoting greater self-reliance, reinforced by external assistance.

LINK will provide backbone support to PfRR partners in Juba and in select regions to enhance coordination and effectiveness towards the realization of resilience objectives. This includes support to PfRR structures and working groups with the establishment of core monitoring and evaluation frameworks and internal knowledge management practices, and establishment of partnership framework building blocks.
