Candidates with demonstrated experience and knowledge in program sectors (WASH / Nutrition / Health / Child protection / Education) and demonstrated understanding of the social, political, and security context in Somalia, with the ability to conduct analysis and provide advisory services.
Scope of Work
The team is expected to visit partners at predetermined intervals during the implementation of the program to ensure satisfactory progress, compliance with contractual commitments, and the identification of hurdles and bottlenecks. In addition, determine whether progress/results reported by partners are supported by evidence on the ground; and/or verify the authenticity of claims made against a partner, in a situation where facts can be complex or buried.
Identify shortages among partners to implement programs, allowing to send supporting supervision visits based on findings from third-party missions. Collect supplemental (mostly photographic) geo-referenced material to allow program personnel to create a remote monitoring mechanism of partners to improve their capacity and program implementation quality.
Assess potential/current partners’ institutional, technical, and management capabilities; conduct due diligence on potential/current partners, including providing information about partners’ (undisclosed) networks and affiliations.
Data is gathered in a variety of formats, categories, and frequencies. Getting synced and analyzed data in a data-scarce setting like Somalia would assist encourage/promote data use. This requires using data acquired through TPMs to create informative dashboards that will be synced to a centrally managed national data warehouse managed. This would necessitate candidates having technical competence in a variety of data gathering and analysis platforms, such as ONA, Tableau, Power Bi, and others. To this aim, candidates must be able to retain raw data, do data synthesis, and undertake trends analysis across time, sectors, and specified metrics.
