The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) mission in Mongolia has contracted Social Impact to assist with developing its Performance Management Plan (PMP) under its new Strategic Framework, which is currently being finalized. The project aims to support the mission with three main tasks: 1) developing a workplan and facilitating the PMP process; 2) designing, organizing, and facilitating virtual working sessions with relevant USAID staff; and 3) drafting, revising, and finalizing the PMP, also containing a forward-looking Evaluation Plan (in conformance with ADS 201 requirements) and a Schedule of Performance Management Tasks and Associated Resources based on working session results and feedback from USAID reviewers.
All work will be performed remotely through online platforms and will accommodate the time zone/working schedule of USAID/Mongolia staff. No travel to Mongolia is anticipated at this time. The project is projected to begin in March 2022 and run through July 2022, with the possibility of the work concluding earlier or later depending on mission needs. The expected Level of Effort (LOE) for this assignment is 45 days.
SI is seeking a Lead Facilitator to support USAID/Mongolia technical teams to develop a complete PMP to be approved no later than June 2022. The lead facilitator will be supported by a co-facilitator who will help complete the technical deliverables, and an SI headquarters (HQ) management team. This is a short-term consultancy.
Work with the co-facilitator to design and facilitate several remote, collaborative sessions with USAID/Mongolia to develop a PMP and PMP Report including the following required components:
Table of Contents and Modification Log
Identification of Learning Priorities and Plan to Address them with Monitoring, Evaluation, and CLA
Performance Indicator Information for Development Objectives (DOs), Intermediate Results and sub-Intermediate Results (IRs)
At least one preliminary outcome performance indicator for each DO, IR, and sub -R identified in the Results Frameworks
Supplemental Information about each Performance Indicator
Plan for collecting baseline data and Data Quality Assessments for every performance indicator associated with the PMPs
Initial draft performance and context indicator reference sheets
Evaluation Plan in conformance with ADS 201 requirements
Schedule of Performance Management Tasks and Associated Resources
The PMP should be completed by early June 2022 to be formally approved by the end of the month. The PMP Report should be completed by early August 2022 to be formally approved by the end of the month. Although USAID will be responsible for putting together the majority of the PMP, the lead and co-facilitators are expected to assist with writing, editing, organizing, and formatting the document, as necessary.
Liaise with USAID through email and virtual meetings to demonstrate how current activities work towards the results in the new Strategic Framework.
Manage and delegate tasks as appropriate to the co-facilitator.
Ensure quality work in all deliverables; implement SI quality assurance processes.
Work closely with SI HQ team and communicate in a timely and effective manner with all project personnel.
