Call for roster.

Background
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is a non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people. NRC advocates for the rights and provides assistance, protection and durable solutions to refugees and internally displaced persons worldwide.

NRC Nigeria assists the most vulnerable in Adamawa, Borno and Plateau States by providing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Shelter, Camp Management, Information Counselling and Legal Assistance, Livelihood and Food Security and Education to displaced persons. In addition, it supports coordination through RRM, WASH and Protection sectors.

Nigeria’s northeast region is currently plagued by major humanitarian crises. Since 2009, violent attacks on civilians by Armed Opposition groups (AOG) have left at least two million people displaced within the country. The country’s North eastern Borno and Adamawa States are experiencing a triple crisis: many have fled their homes to Borno’s capital Maiduguri and other urban areas where the government army is present and provides some security. However, the influx has led to great pressure on already scarce resources. Most internally displaced persons in Borno or Adamawa States come from rural areas, where farming is the main source of livelihood, and have trouble earning a living in the cities. Displaced women and children are at the highest risk of abuse during these conflicts. Persistent similar issues exist in Plateau State (Jos).

The Country Office is seeking evaluation and research consultants with an interest in our thematic areas including- Camp Management, Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA), Education, Livelihoods and Food Security (LFS), Protection, Shelter, WaSH in order to expand its pool of evaluation and research professionals. Successful applicants will remain in the roster for up to three (3 years), and can be considered for individual consultancy contracts as evaluators/researchers or companies.

The support envisaged spans short-term clearly delineated consultancy assignments to more complex longer-term assignment involving design, review, evaluation, meta-evaluation and research.

The Norwegian Refugee Council hereby wishes to invite suitably qualified individual and consulting companies to bid for the provisions of the services indicated below:
