Request For Expressions Of Interest: End Of Program Evaluation For AGRA Africa’s Seed Systems Program

ASSIGNMENT TARGET COUNTRIES: GHANA, MOZAMBIQUE, TANZANIA, KENYA, AND ETHIOPIA

The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is working with African governments, donors, non-governmental organizations, the private sector and African farmers to significantly and sustainably improve the productivity and incomes of resource-poor farmers in Africa. AGRA has its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.

AGRA seeks to measure and provide robust empirical evidence on the success and impact of the AGRA seeds systems in developing and scaling up seed systems in Africa that should inform future investments in seed systems in the 2017-2021 AGRA Integrated Strategy and beyond. Impact is understood to mean the wider effects of the programs on farmers, input systems and overall food systems.

The evaluation will assess the changes or outcomes observed as a result of the programs and to what extent these changes or outcomes can be attributed to the programs. It will also assess any unintended impacts that resulted from the programs. It will assess the mechanisms that delivered the observed changes and the key features of these mechanisms. Lastly, it will recommend how the evidence should be used to inform future AGRA investments.

AGRA now invites eligible consultants (firms) to indicate their interest in providing these services. Interested firms must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services (description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions, general qualifications of key staff, and so forth).
