Social Impact has been contracted by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to design and implement an endline evaluation of the Power Sector Reform Project (PSRP) in Malawi. The PSRP’s objective is to expand the power sector by strengthening sector institutions, enhancing regulation and governance of the sector, rebuilding ESCOM into a financially sustainable and operationally well-managed utility, and developing a regulatory environment that enables public and private investment in power infrastructure, particularly in new generation.

Endline evaluation activities include extensive qualitative research through individual and group interviews addressing topics of finance, corporate governance, electricity operations, tariff reform, and the creation of an enabling environment for private sector investment. SI is releasing this Request for Quotes (RFQ) for English language transcription services of these individual and group interviews.

SI requests that all bidders examine the specific requirements contained in this Request for Quotes (RFQ) and prepare responses pursuant to the terms of this RFQ. All questions related to the RFQ are to be submitted by Thursday January 31, 2019 and will be answered by Monday February 4, 2019, 17.00 ET. The deadline to submit proposals is Monday February 11, 2019, 09.00 ET. Please refer to the RFQ for a detailed documentation of project background and scope of work.
