Launched in July 2019, the Gender at the Centre Initiative (GCI) was developed by the G7 Ministers of Education and Development in collaboration with multilateral and civil society organizations committed to advancing gender equality in education. The GCI programme, focusing on eight (8) countries in sub-Saharan Africa, is one of the many initiatives the United Nation’s Girls Education Initiative (UNGEI) has developed to fulfil its pledge to advancing gender equality in education. GCI is an opportunity to mobilize the advocacy, resources, and expertise needed to support governments to accelerate progress in gender equality, both in and through education.
As the lead Agency and Secretariat for United Nation’s Girls Education Initiative, UNICEF invites qualified vendors to submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) for the Design and Implementation of a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Framework for the Gender at the Centre Initiative.
Note: this EOI does not constitute a solicitation. UNICEF does not require bids or proposals at this stage; UNICEF seeks an expression of interest in participating in the tender. A response to this EOI does not automatically ensure an invitation to tender. A final ToR will be provided to the invitees of the Request for Proposal for Services (RFPS).
UNICEF reserves the right to change or cancel requirements at any time during the EOI and/or resulting solicitation process. UNICEF also reserves the right to require compliance with additional conditions when issuing the final tender document.
