Haiti Evaluation and Survey Services Plus (ESS+)
Through the USAID/Haiti Evaluation and Survey Services Plus (ESS+) Activity, IBI provides technical support for Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) services to USAID/Haiti in order to ensure empirical evidence for programming, learning and adapting. This technical MEL support will supplement the monitoring and program management efforts of USAID/Haiti staff, helping the mission meet the MEL requirements outlined in the Automated Directive Systems (ADS) Chapter 201: Operational Policy for the Program Cycle. Services include technical evaluation, survey and study support, capacity building and learning events, and in-country Third Party Monitoring (TPM) of USAID activities in Haiti, which at times is a non-permissive environment.
The purpose of this contract is to provide the following technical services:
Evaluation and Survey Support
Capacity Building and Learning Events
In-country Third Party Monitoring (TPM) of USAID activities
The expected result of this activity is to ensure empirical evidence for programming, learning, and adapting (throughout the Program Cycle) while enhancing both the mission’s and local partners’ MEL capabilities.
During the four years of this activity, ESS+ will help enhance the stability of USAID programs operating in Haiti’s unstable security and political climate. Through capacity development and learning activities, ESS+ will support the mission and local partners to sustain improved MEL practices beyond the end of the program.
