Strengthening Rights-Based Advocacy and Policy Development for Reproductive, Maternal, Child, Newborn and Adolescent Health

United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women | Published March 20, 2015  -  Deadline April 15, 2015
cpvs

UN Women, as a member of the H4+ partnership of UN agencies seeks an implementing partner with relevant experience in advocacy capacity-building in reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH).  H4+ is a partnership between UNFPA, UNICEF, WHO, the World Bank, UNAIDS and UN Women who have joined forces to support countries with the highest rates of maternal and newborn mortality. The H4+  primary focus is working with countries to strengthen their health systems to provide better maternal and newborn health services in order to reduce the maternal mortality ratio by 75% and achieve universal access to reproductive health – and advance the two targets under MDG 5 and to reduce child mortality as called for by MDG 4. The work of the H4+ is also linked to MDG 3 promoting gender equality and empowering women and MDG 6 combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases. A critical area of work for H4+ is to tackle the root causes of maternal, newborn and child mortality and morbidity, including gender inequality, low access to education (especially for girls), child marriage and adolescent pregnancy. Within UN Women’s work on health, human-rights based programming is a cornerstone of and key to ensuring linkages with broader development frameworks and activities at national level which address root, structural causes of poor RMNCH  outcomes that impede progress toward MDG 3,4,5,6 attainment including gender inequality. In 2015, H4+and the global community will be working to synthesize best practices for service delivery interventions and national coordination which will inform future national programme planning and global initiatives. Within this opportunity, it is critical that women’s sexual and reproductive rights be at the center of defining RMNCH related goals within development frameworks. The proposed activities aim to address this gap through support for global advocacy by creating spaces for dialogue, building capacity of regional advocates and developing relevant advocacy materials to influence international policy discussions. Please submit proposals by April 15th, 2015 to: Tesmerelna.Atsbeha@unwomen.org

Provision of Professional Services to Conduct Independent Post-Project Evaluations of the United ...

United Nations Secretariat | Published January 11, 2016  -  Deadline February 10, 2016

The United Nations Procurement Division (UN/PD) seeks qualified companies for the provision of professional services to conduct independent post-project evaluations for the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF). Tasks: UNDEF is looking for consulting firms to undertake evaluations of UNDEF’s project portfolio, namely individual country, regional and global projects. The purpose of the post-project evaluations is to present a comprehensive analysis of results of the project in light of criteria such as relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of the UNDEF projects, and to draw lessons and recommendations for the UNDEF to improve its project selection, project design, monitoring processes, and for the grantees to improve their future performance of the project management. UNDEF will publish the final evaluation reports on its website unless agreed contrary. Services shall be provided in-country. Communications with the UNDEF will be carried out electronically. The evaluation team should preferably be composed of local evaluators with local language proficiency and local knowledge of a country in concern, under overall management of the selected vendor. The selected vendor will have to organize evaluation teams within a short period of time upon request for a specific evaluation. The proposed contract will be for approximately two years with possibility of extension. The UNDEF plans to request around 20 evaluations per year for the first two years. Fluency in local languages is required for in-country evaluators, while the final evaluation reports should be mainly in English and occasionally in French for projects in Francophone countries (the executive summary shall still be in English). The final reports should be coordinated by the vendor’s headquarter staff and other international experts for quality assurance. Background of the UNDEF and its projects: The United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF) is one of the UN Secretary-General’s Trust Funds, created at the Millennium Summit in 2005, with aim to strengthen voice of civil society by providing financial support to Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in order to implement grass-roots, bottom up projects for democracy promotion. Up until 2014, the Fund has provided financial support to 583 projects and will support over 600 projects by the 9th round of funding. UNDEF has provided support to home-grown and locally owned initiatives involving various stakeholders, youth, women, minority and other marginalized groups. UNDEF’s priority areas are: Democratic dialogue and support for constitutional processes; Civil society empowerment, including the empowerment of women; Civic education and voter registration; Citizens’ access to information; Participation rights and rule of law in support of civil society; and Transparency and integrity, while the most important goal is to empower citizens and civil society through a variety of goals and approaches of the projects. UNDEF projects are spread worldwide: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and Arab States. Almost all applicants are civil society organizations. Majority of the UNDEF projects are single country projects while 20% are regional and global projects. The default project duration is 24 months. Example of UNDEF projects are as follows: Uganda “Strengthening Young Women’s Civic Participation and Leadership in Uganda” (UDF- UGA-13-547) The project aims to increase participation of a total of 1,500 young university women (10 universities across the country, 18-25 years old) in the 2016 general elections in Uganda as voters, educators, supporters or possibly candidates. The project’s strategic approach is to inspire and equip the young women with skills by providing information using simple, interactive and entertaining channels, build leadership skills through experiential learning tools, provide supportive networks for peer-to-peer learning, and mentors to guide them. At the conclusion of the project the young women are empowered to actively and confidently take part in electoral and civic activities. Mongolia “Next Level Democracy: Citizen Involvement in Legislative Development through E-Governance in Mongolia” (UDF-MON-13-564) The project aims to improve citizen engagement in Mongolia’s democracy through the improvement of information flow and interactive exchanges between citizens and legislative body. It provides an e-governance platform for government to communicate its legislations, and for society to answer back with petitions. Through training of users and moderators, awareness campaigns and small grants, it aims to increase community's understanding of legislative development and petitionary mechanisms and to promote interactions. Through reports, dialogue sessions, and forums involving government members and CSOs, it seeks to integrate citizens in legislative decision-making. Maldives “Parliament Watch in Maldives” (UDF-MDV-13-563) The project aims to engage the public in holding the Maldivian Parliament accountable. This is achieved through a process of increasing public awareness on the roles, responsibilities and the boundaries of the parliament and parliamentarians, and creating a platform (Parliamentary watch) for interaction between constituents and MPs. The project also provides feedback on the perception of parliamentarians within civil society through the Majlis Members report Card and will further assess whether tabled legislation is in line with international standards on human rights and gender equality using a tool “the Human rights and Gender Barometer for Legislative Projects”.

CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR TRANSPORTATION AND MOVEMENTS

United Nations Secretariat | Published April 25, 2016

CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR TRANSPORTATION AND MOVEMENTS Introduction 1. The Department of Field Support (DFS) in conjunction with the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and the Department of Management (DM) arranges a large number of chartered passenger flights, cargo flights and ships in support of the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations (PKOs). Annual expenditure is in the range of USD 200-250 million for these activities. The planning for this strategic movement involves various elements of different Departments of UN Secretariat and Member States: from DPKO, the Military Division (Mil. Div.) and Civilian Police Division (CPD), who are responsible to generate the forces; from DFS, the Logistics Support Division (LSD), who is responsible to move the forces; Member States, the Troop Contributing Countries (TCC) or Police Contributing Countries (PCC) who supply the forces; and DPKO Field Missions, who must receive the forces. 2. The largest annual expenditure is in passenger airlift (rotation, deployment and repatriation); a slightly lower expenditure with cargo airlift and a significantly lower expenditure associated with cargo sealift. However, sea movement of cargo tends to be the more complicated operation given the large volume of cargo that is being moved and the fact that the cargo usually originates from one or more locations inside the TCC/PCC necessitating, more often than not, a multimodal movement. Inland transportation within a DPKO field mission is also required to deliver the cargo to the TCC/PCC Contingent’s final destination. 3. One of the biggest expenditures is in starting up new peace keeping missions where a large amount of equipment and supplies must be transported to the mission area in a relatively short period of time. This equipment and supplies comprises both United Nations Owned Equipment (UNOE) and Contingent Owned Equipment (COE) belonging to TCC/PCCs. The movement of this UNOE and COE must also be coordinated and prioritized to meet the operational requirements of the field mission and conducted in accordance with the ability of the field mission to receive the goods. The movement of UNOE does not generally apply to this scope of work as there are a number of UN logistics specialists in the areas where UNOE originates. This scope of work, therefore, will be largely restricted to the movement of TCC/PCCs’ COE. 4. The movement of COE generally falls into two categories: (a) strategic movement and (b) tactical or in-theatre movement. Within a given field mission, the UN has a number of logistics/movement control specialists who look after the in-theatre movement via all applicable modes of transport. The UN employs a small number of movement control specialists at its headquarters in New York who plan, arrange, execute and monitor all strategic movement. For major deployments of COE from TCC/PCCs, it is often necessary to dispatch a Movements and Transportation specialist to these countries to oversee operations. There are not, however, sufficient movement control specialists staffed within the UN to meet the surge requirements. The aims of this scope are two. 1) The primary purpose is to obtain a qualified and certified logistics/movement control specialist who will act as the UN’s agent in a TCC/PCC during major movements. Additional specialists may be required at trans-shipment points en-route to or within a DPKO Peacekeeping Mission area. 2) A secondary requirement, during surge requirements at the UNHQ in New York or in field missions, to assist Movement Control Section Staff on an as-required basis on different Movement and Transportation related tasks. Scope of Consultancy 5. Essentially the Movements and Transportation Specialist is the UN’s representative on the ground where the transport originates. The duties and responsibilities of the Movements and Transportation Specialist include liaising with the military and other governmental authorities within the TCC/PCC, providing guidance and assistance to the TCC/PCC on documentation and cargo preparations, liaising with the UN contractors, providing feedback and information to the UNHQ and Field Missions, related to the cargo and passenger movement. 6. During surge requirements, the job may require active participation in UNHQ, New York and or DPKO field missions (located globally) and will require extensive work associated with moving troops and equipment in support of Peace Keeping Operations. The consultant will be expected to work both at the UNHQ, New York or at the designated Field Mission as and when necessary. 7. The project manager in the UN for the purposes of the consultancy will be the Chief of the MCS/LSD/DFS. The Vendor shall appoint a Project Manager with whom the UN will be in contact during the entire execution of the contract for any matter related to the services to be provided. 8. Companies must have the organization and capacity to carry out their duties and responsibilities in a professional manner and must have a minimum capability of fielding two (2) teams of up to five (5) members each simultaneously. 9. The selected Vendor must have the following (mandatory) qualifications/requirements. a. Companies must demonstrate at least five (5) years of international experience providing Movements and Transportation Services or Consultancy Services in this field. b. No conflict of interest. In the interest of impartiality, the vendor must have no vested interests or long term associations with any UN contractors providing Contingent Owned Equipment (COE) cargo movements or broker services. A letter of certification signed by a senior officer attesting that the firm has no such association, shall be provided with the proposal. c. Be able to provide at any given time a minimum of ten (10) qualified personnel. These personnel must have: • Current Dangerous Goods certification by air (IATA) and/or sea (IMDG). Copy of valid certificate shall be included in the offer per each consultant. NOTE: For those certified under IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, they should include training at least for Categories 1, 2, 3 or 6. • Minimum of two (2) years working experience in at least one mode of transportation with particular emphasis on the planning, preparation, documentation and handling of cargo by air, sea or land. • Minimum education level of High School. • Speak, read and write English fluently, Companies should provide copies of updated curriculum vitae (CV) of all personnel, including copies of personnel’s dangerous goods certificates. CVs should indicate proficiency of languages and level of academic degrees/diplomas attained. d. Companies should provide a detailed program on the training of their Movement and Transportation specialists with particular emphasis on planning, preparation, documentation and handling of cargo by air, sea or land.
