Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) hereby invites interested tenders to submit a proposal for the evaluation of NPA’s peace-related work in Colombia.
Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) is a non-governmental organisation with roots in the Norwegian labour movement. NPA is a world-leader within mine action and disarmament, a spearhead in the work for a just distribution of power and resources supporting popular organisation and mobilisation, and has a central role in ensuring local humanitarian actors reach more people with an effective, relevant response.
NPA has recently adopted a new strategy for the period of 2020-2023. One of our overall priorities is to ensure that our three programme areas mutually support each other, and to develop policy and guiding principles for how this can be more closely linked.
In Colombia, NPA has had two programmes working on these specific areas connected to the Colombian peace process. NPA wishes to evaluate whether or not the programmes has succeeded on coordination, collaboration and better integration between the two programmes in the efforts to contribute to the peace process.
Purpose of the evaluation
The purpose of the evaluation is to learn from the work NPA has engaged in supporting partners’ work to influence political decision-making in Colombia, the mine action efforts conducted as a trust building part of the peace negotiations in the country and how this work has generated processes directly within and between communities. The evaluation should aim at providing lessons learned from the peace related work and suggest recommendations relevant for future peace processes where our different programmes can be better interlinked and collaborate.
The main issue to be addressed by the evaluation is:
To which degree has the two NPA country programmes in Colombia been effective and contributed towards the peace process in Colombia, and what has been the advantages/disadvantages of having a two-programme approach?
The full terms of reference for the evaluation can be found here: ToR Evaluation Colombia
Deadline and submission
The evaluation has a budget limit of 30 days.
A proposal is to be submitted to NPA by September 20th at 12 pm. We kindly ask interested tenders to send us an expression of interest within 15th September.
Any question, expression of interest og proposal can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should be marked with “Peace Colombia Evaluation”
