Tanzania follow-up survey: Call for tenders
Twaweza is seeking a competent and reliable organization that can carry out high-quality data collection for a follow-up survey, based on a re-visit to the 2,500 households included in the baseline, and re-survey of the 250 communities in which the households are located.
As part of the evaluation of Twaweza’s first strategic period (2009-2014) and in collaboration with the Amsterdam Institute of International Development (AIID), Twaweza conducted a nationally-representative survey of 2,500 households throughout Tanzania. The survey collected data on an extensive set of indicators related to citizen agency and government responsiveness particularly in the education, health and water sectors (the highlights of the findings can be found here http://www.twaweza.org/uploads/files/AIIDBaseline-small.pdf). Additional (briefer) surveys were conducted in the 250 communities where the households were located at schools and health facilities, and with leadership of the selected location/village. This survey also formed the baseline of a 4-year research project planned by Twaweza and AIID. The follow-up survey was planned for 2014, and is the subject of this RFP.
You are hereby invited to submit tenders for Twaweza Tanzania follow-up survey in accordance with this tender documentation. Tender documents need to be delivered in the form specified herein by 1600 on 2 December 2014. Twaweza reserves the right to reject any and all tenders.
For further details see the attached invitation to tender.
