Consultancy to provide Training on Project Management, Monitoring and Impact Measurement to
National Chapters from Latin America
Anti-Corruption: Delivering Change (AC:DC)
Governance and Transparency Fund (GTF)
Transparency International (TI) is a global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 90 National Chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin , Germany , TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.
The AC:DC Programme aims to reduce corruption in 25 countries world-wide by advocating for effective anti-corruption policy and practice at the national, regional, municipal and local levels. Compelling evidence is gathered on corruption in diverse sectors and from victims and witnesses of corrupt acts. The evidence will form the basis of various advocacy initiatives toward government authorities and the public at large. National Chapters will seek constructive engagement with the authorities and other partners to push for change in laws, practices and the pervasive public apathy surrounding corruption.
Five National Chapters in Latin America will conduct research and advocacy campaigns in a variety of thematic areas, including Access to Information, Anti-Corruption Conventions, Municipal Transparency, Political Party and Campaign Finance, Conflict of Interest, Regulating Lobbying and Implementing the Nominal Vote.
TI is searching for two consultants, one expert on advocacy, one expert on project management and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), to prepare and conduct a training in Spanish for the Latin America region. In exceptional cases, the training could be conducted by a single expert with the required skill-set. The following knowledge, experience and skills are required:
Minimum of five years of relevant experience in identification, management and/or monitoring & evaluation of projects for NGOs or similar entities
Specific experience in developing and delivering participatory training in project management, log-frame methodology and monitoring & evaluation, ideally for good governance and/or advocacy projects
Demonstrated familiarity with various project management and monitoring & evaluation tools
Fluency in Spanish, with good knowledge of English
The planned meeting will bring together project managers responsible for these efforts from five National Chapters, Chile , Colombia , Mexico , Nicaragua and Venezuela , who are all beneficiaries of the AC:DC Programme. Additional countries may also send participants to the session, however not exceeding ten participants in total. It is planned to take place over four days in Bogota , Colombia from 1 – 4 September (tbc), with some flexibility on the dates. Part I will consist of training on Advocacy Skills during one day. Part II will address project management issues generally and defining and monitoring of results and impact in particular over two days. Close coordination between the consultants and with TI is expected in the preparation of the training. The approach should be as participatory and practical as possible, addressing the particular projects of the NCs.
