DFID 6074 - Partnership Management, Evaluation and Learning function in support of ‘Improving Reproductive, Maternal and Newborn Health’ programme in Sierra Leone

DFID seeks a partnership management, evaluation and learning (PMEL) service provider to coordinate and manage the delivery of DFID’s reproductive, maternal and newborn health (RMNH) programme. The PMEL will work to ensure that : the RMNH programme provides value for money, strengthens the evidence base for maternal and newborn health and contributes to the accelerated attainment of Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5. Set up and maintain strong secretariat support to the Programme Steering Committee, chaired by the Ministry for Health &Sanitation, that provides the overall governance function to the programme. Develop a robust management and information system to capture and link information across all the implementing partners in this programme. Report to DFID on behalf of the programme implementing partners, collating and synthesising narrative and financial reports to produce joint six month and annual programme reports that demonstrate delivery and progress of the programme as a whole against the attached logical framework. Annually, working closely with UNICEF, UNFPA and the private sector service delivery provider, produce monthly financial forecasts which the PMEL service provider would track, and flag any required adjustments in a timely manner. Work closely with UN implementing agencies and their partners, and the private sector service provider to ensure that the programme’s objectives are being met and that opportunities for effective working to promote best outcomes are maximised. Work closely with the Reproductive and Childhealth (RCH) directorate of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, GoSL and ensure alignment with the RCH Strategy 2011-2015.
