DFID is scaling up its efforts to build resilience to natural disasters and climate change in Nepal. This Terms of Reference is for a supplier to implement DFID's Nepal Safer Schools Project (NSSP). The programme is expected to run for 5 years, including a 4-month inception period in year 1, starting in early August 2017. The NSSP will have 3 main results areas in line with the Government of Nepal's commitments on safer schools in the School Sector Development Plan and Comprehensive School Safety Framework: — Output 1: Safer learning facilities, particularly through seismically-resilient retrofitting and rebuilding of school buildings; — Output 2: School-level disaster management and resilient education; and — Output 3: National-level technical assistance on safer learning facilities. The NSSP will be fully aligned with and contribute to the Government of Nepal's School Sector Development Plan (2016-2023) which includes a focus on School Safety and Disaster Risk Reduction. This project will focus on up to 4 districts in the Far and Mid-West, as well as at a national-level. A Steering Committee composed of officials from the Government of Nepal and DFID, will be established to oversee and strategically guide the NSSP. The total budget available for the NSSP is between 10 000 000 GBP and 12 000 000 GBP. DFID invites suppliers to set out how they will deliver the outputs set out in this Terms of Reference within the overall budget ceiling.
