Social Impact is a sub-contractor to ECODIT on the Water Communications and Knowledge Management (CKM) Project, a five-year task order under the Water and Development IDIQ (WADI) supporting the work of USAID’s Water Office in the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (E3/W). A key SI role in the CKM project is to conduct a series of performance evaluations of closed USAID-funded water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects to further USAID’s understanding of the extent to which the achievements of their WASH activities have been sustained, and reasons why these outcomes and activities have or have not been sustained. This position will be hired by ECODIT and managed by SI’s CKM M&E Specialist.
USAID funded the Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP) in Zambézia province Mozambique from 2009-2014. SCIP was implemented by World Vision and the activity aimed to “improve the health and livelihoods of women, children and families in Zambézia Province by pursuing an integrated, innovative, and sustainable community-based program supporting cross-sector integration of USAID’s development actions in the province.” This ex-post performance evaluation will examine the long-term sustainability of the SCIP activity’s approach to improve rural water supply and sanitation.
The Senior WASH Evaluation Specialist will be expected to contribute substantial technical and local knowledge to design and implement evaluation activities pertaining to the SCIP project. He/she will work alongside Social Impact’s Team Leader and other local WASH experts. He/she will contribute to data collection including qualitative interviews with state and local government officials, implementers, program participants, and USAID along with other team members. He/she may also conduct quantitative data collection. He/she may contribute to preliminary data coding and analysis immediately after data collection.
The Specialist will be expected to conduct data collection for up to four weeks in May-June 2019 across Mozambique. This assignment requires approximately 25 days of labor between February and July 2019.
