CARE Mozambique is seeking the services of an experienced consultant.
The USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance released an RFA for the Mozambique Resilience Food Security Activity in August 2021. CARE, in consortium with partners, is designing a five-year project, scheduled to start early in calendar year 2022, to cover 4 target districts in Zambezia province. There is a possibility of renewal for up to five additional years.
This RFSA program places particular emphasis on infant and young child feeding (IYCF) and improved nutrition for pregnant and lactating women. The program will also have a large commodities component, with 50% of the budget to be for funding of commodities and associated costs. The proposal is due on October 11, 2021.
CARE Mozambique is pursuing several new funding opportunities simultaneously as well as responding to an ongoing humanitarian emergency in the north of the country. To provide additional needed support on design of the RFSA proposal, CARE Mozambique is seeking the services of an experienced consultant for a period not to exceed 25 days. The consultant will provide crucial backstopping support and inputs to ensure that the proposal design is technically strong, responsive to BHA requirements and priorities, aligned with MoH strategies and priorities and appropriate for the Zambezia context.
The consultant may be asked to represent CARE Mozambique in meetings with other NGOs, Government ministries, UN agencies and other principle stakeholders, as well as to recommend adjustments to the proposal design to maximize quality and impact and to facilitate eventual implementation of the project.
A qualified consultant will have the following skills, qualifications, and competencies:
