The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to enter into a contractual agreement with a successful bidder and select a suitable contractor to carry out an Independent Evaluation of the contribution of the UNAIDS Joint Programme to the goals and targets in the 2016-2021 UNAIDS Strategy (i.e.: The joint evaluation of the 2016-2021 Unified Budget, Results and Accountability Framework (UBRAF)).
The independent evaluation is designed primarily for organizational learning but also for accountability purposes. It will assess the work of the Joint Programme in the first three years of the UNAIDS 2016-2021 Strategy and the UBRAF at country, regional and global levels.
The evaluation will review progress against the outputs in the UBRAF and the goals and targets in the UNAIDS Strategy. It should identify what the Joint Programme needs to and can do in the future, and how the UNAIDS Secretariat and Cosponsors will need to evolve to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030, given the changing AIDS context, which includes ongoing UN reform efforts, shifting priorities and availability of resources.
The context also includes the role of civil society and other stakeholders such as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria as well as PEPFAR (the US Government’s AIDS programme), the Universal Health Coverage agenda and the Global Action Plan for healthy lives and wellbeing for all.
The evaluation is expected to provide actionable recommendations for the last biennium of the UBRAF implementation and inform the development of UNAIDS next Strategy and UBRAF and the future positioning of the Joint Programme.
UNAIDS is an organization that is dependent on voluntary core and non-core contributions. Bidders are therefore requested to propose the best and most cost-effective solution to meet UNAIDS requirements while ensuring a high level of service. For more information about UNAIDS see www.unaids.org.
