Experienced Evaluators for Evaluation of Danida’s Fellowship Programme

Organization: SIPU International

Duration: 6 months

Expected Start: March 2012

Donor: Danida

Status: Tender stage

Description and background:

The Fellowship Programme supports Capacity Development (CD) in developing countries (primarily, but not solely, Danida’s partner countries) by organizing and/or implementing CD support in terms of courses, studies, research, study tours, seminars, etc. in Denmark as well as in developing countries – nationally as well as regionally. The support includes interdisciplinary courses, tailor-made courses, degree studies, strategic initiatives and study/exposure tours, with a duration varying from 2 weeks to full master or PhD programmes.

The overall purpose of the evaluation is to document and assess the supported activities and the related results, with an aim to contribute to both accountability and learning. To this end, it must assess the different achievements of the programme, as well as the framework and processes for accomplishing the results.

The evaluation is expected to apply the OECD-DAC evaluation criteria, with the emphasis on relevance, effectiveness and efficiency. An important part of the evaluation is expected to be a fitness-for-purpose assessment, investigating if and how the activities are likely to lead to the expected outcomes and impact both at the level of the individual activities and at the level of the programme as a whole; including the role of possible enabling and hindering factors, framework conditions etc. For more information, please view the Terms of Reference
