MEL Consultant – Tracking and Implementing the Anti-Corruption Summit Commitments

TI-UK is one year into a three-year project, funded by the UK Department for International Development, with a focus on advancing the delivery of anti-corruption commitments made at the 2016 Anti-Corruption Summit. Although the project is centrally managed by TI-UK, 8 other Transparency International chapters or partner organisations receive funding as downstream partners.

The key elements of the project are: tracking how/whether governments are implementing their Summit commitments, through national and global pledge tracking tools; supporting five chapters to develop and implement national advocacy strategies to advance the implementation of their government’s commitments; establishing and using thematic networks to share intelligence, approaches and lessons learned across six issue areas, and; delivering international events to maintain visibility on the Summit commitments, bring Summit countries together and generate healthy competition between leaders to sustain momentum on key thematic areas (asset recovery, beneficial ownership transparency, law enforcement).


Purpose and Objectives

This consultant will provide an independent assessment of the extent to which the project is meeting its goals. Specifically, this will include:

  • Developing the MEL system. The consultant will be expected to work with staff to further develop and expand the existing MEL system, or develop a new system altogether, to ensure it can robustly include guidance on collecting and analysing data, methods and tools for data collection, a simple management information system for data compilation and processing, and enable effective storytelling including presentation of the impact. The system should be suitable for capturing information on a multi-stakeholder engagement.
  • Collecting baseline data. The consultant will be expected to conduct a baseline survey at the start of the consultancy period to provide an information base against which to monitor and assess progress and effectiveness during the project.
  • Conducting external evaluation. The consultant will be expected to conduct an external evaluation of the project, with a primary focus on understanding the changes as a result of the project’s activities. The learning element of the evaluation should focus on progress and achievements, as well as highlighting recommendations for the sustainability and or further development of the project.

Timeframe: 3 to 6 months.
