BACKGROUND

The Decentralization and Local Development Support Programme (DLDSP) is a joint project of Local Development Directorates (LDD) of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MOMA). The DLDSP is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The DLDSP provides support to the Government of Jordan for the design and implementation of decentralization reforms and the building of sub-national governance and administration capacity. It operates under the guidance of the Inter-Ministerial Committee for Decentralization and its Executive Committee (IMC).

The DLDSP, is providing technical support to the IMC to carry out the implementation of the decentralization reform to improve the legal framework, as well as organizational structures of governorates and municipalities; and to improve the competences of elected official and civil servants at national and local levels.

DLDSP seeks to achieve three results:

  • Result 1: The policy/ regulatory framework pertaining to decentralization has been adopted;

  • Result 2: Capacities of the Governorate-based structures in strategic planning, budget analysis and monitoring are strengthened;

  • Result 3: Participatory development plans have been properly elaborated in Governorates through strengthened dialogue with Non-State Actors and increased citizen’s participation (including identification of local productive projects to be established).

2.Scope of Work

The Mid Term Evaluation envisages to identify and describe the lessons learned, through the analysis of the set indicators, summarize the experiences gained- technically, and recommend the approaches and methodologies for future sustainability.

The overall project midterm evaluation should seek to evaluate DLDSP’s alignment and implementation at the general level and more specifically at the project level (against DLDSP project document).

More broadly the midterm evaluation should be aligned with the principles established in UNDP’s Evaluation Policy http://web.undp.org/evaluation/ and the principles outlined in the UNEG ‘Ethical Guidelines for Evaluation” http://www.unevaluation.org/document/detail/102

During the implementation of the contract, the consultant will report to the inclusive participation team leader who will provide guidance and ensure satisfactory completion of mid-term evaluation deliverables. There will be close coordination with the DLDSP project manager and project team who will assist in connecting the consultant with senior management, development partners, beneficiaries and key stakeholders. In addition, the project manager will provide key project documentation prior to fieldwork, and DLDSP project staff will assist in developing a detailed programme to facilitate consultations as necessary. UNDP will provide office space and access to standard office services as needed. However, the consultant is responsible for providing their own computer and communications equipment.

 

The UNDP M&E Handbook http://web.undp.org/evaluation/guidance.shtml#handbook is another useful reference to UNDP’s evaluation principles.
