    In support of the CAMRIS-implemented, USAID/Nepal Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) Activity, we seek a Team Leader for the upcoming Mid-Term Evaluation for USAID/Nepal’s Public Financial Management Strengthening Project (PFMSP).

     

    The purpose of this Mid-term Evaluation of the PFMSP is to:

    • Assess the extent to which the activity’s interventions are effective and whether the developmental hypothesis and theory of change remain valid.
    • Examine whether the activity’s approaches remain relevant given the evolving federal context, and recommend adjustments, if warranted.
    • Assess the degree to which there is early evidence of sustained results.
    • Determine whether the activity is advancing on the Mission’s GESI policy.

    USAID will use the results of the mid-term evaluation to make necessary course corrections to the activity and to inform future programming decisions.
