Overview

The overall purpose of Monitoring and Evaluation in Tunisia and Libya is to seek technical support for monitoring, evaluation and learning services for USAID/Tunisia and USAID/Libya. These two programs have separate and distinct monitoring, evaluation and learning needs. According to USAID’s ADS 201.3.5, “The purpose of monitoring, evaluation and learning practices is to apply knowledge gained from evidence and analysis to improve development outcomes and ensure accountability for the resources used to achieve them. USAID relies on the best available information to rigorously and credibly make choices, plan effectively, manage adaptively, and learn systematically.”

 

The Scope of Work for this consultancy supports USAID/Libya’s requirement for third-party monitoring and evaluation services as well as support in efforts to gain and apply knowledge derived from MEL to inform its program and strategy decisions.
