Project Background
Social Impact, Inc. (SI) has been contracted by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to design and implement an endline evaluation of the Sierra Leone Threshold Program (THP). The Program sought to build a foundation for the more effective and financially sustainable provision of essential urban services – water and electricity, with a focus on greater Freetown – in order to attract and sustain increased sector investment. To improve water service provision, the THP included the District Metering Area and Standpipe Demonstration Activity (DMA/Kiosk Activity). To measure the DMA/Kiosk Activity, household data collection was completed in early-2021 in the targeted DMAs. SI is releasing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to implement the endline data collection for which SI will provide technical support and oversight.

Service Explanation
SI is seeking to engage a data collection Consultant Firm who is well versed in collecting quantitative and qualitative data through household surveys and focus group discussions in Sierra Leone. The implementation will take place in the three DMA areas in late-2022/early-2023. Precise dates will be communicated upon award.

SI requests that all bidders examine the specific requirements contained in this Request for Proposals (RFP) and Annex A: Subcontract Budget and prepare responses pursuant to the terms of this RFP. All questions related to the RFP are to be submitted by Thursday, August 25, 2022, 17:00 EDT and will be answered by Monday, August 29, 2022, 17:00 EDT.
