Project Background: Social Impact (SI) is a sub-contractor to FHI360 on the CIHG activity. SI is currently designing an endline survey to assess outcomes at the end of activity implementation. CIHG aims to improve citizens’ understanding of and participation in Guinea’s health system reforms, and in the process, build public trust in Guinea’s health sector and governance. Through mutually reinforcing activities led by civil society organizations (CSOs) and media networks, the intermediate results (IRs) of CIHG are:

  • IR 1: Opportunities expanded for government officials and citizens to engage in constructive dialogue
  • IR 2: More effective advocacy for health reforms by partner CSOs

The field data collection is scheduled to take two weeks and will tentatively occur from March 18-31st, 2020, with training of supervisors and enumerators as well as pilot testing of tools preceding these dates- from approximately March 5-12, 2020.

Scope of Work: The selected Offeror will conduct high quality quantitative survey data collection for an endline assessment of outcomes from the USAID-funded Citizens Improving Health Governance (CIHG) activity in Guinea. The primary purpose of the endline survey is to assess outcomes of the CIHG activity on citizen’s knowledge and engagement in health governance at the end of the project. The selected Offeror will recruit and train enumerators and interviewers with SI guidance and support, complete all logistical planning and coordination, conduct all data collection noted below according to SI protocols and best practices, complete regular data quality assurance, compile and clean quantitative data in clearly labeled databases, and communicate regularly and promptly with SI on work plan progress and challenges.

SI requests that all bidders examine the specific requirements contained in this Request for Proposals (RFP) and prepare responses pursuant to the terms of this RFP. All questions related to the RFP are to be submitted by 12/30/2019. The deadline to submit proposals is 1/10/2020.
