Request for Proposal for Study on Sustainability of Open Defecation Free Results
UNICEF is seeking qualified institutional bidders (research agencies or group of research experts) to undertake a study on sustainability of Open Defecation Free results.
While implementing the study, the research agency will have to select the representative numbers of Village Development Committees (VDCs) which were declared Open Defecation Free on or before 2013 from 5-7 districts representing different development regions and areas affected by earthquake and floods. The districts can be Achham, Bardia, Kaski, Sindupalchowk, Kalikot, Saptari and Panchthar.
The research agency will have to design study methods, produce an inception report, and carry out collection, cleaning, tabulation, verification, analysis and assurance of the quality of data. After doing so, the research agency will have to produce and submit a final report to the National Sanitation and Hygiene Coordination Committee, its secretariat and its task force. For planning purpose, research agency should assume that the contract will be signed by September 2015. The study is expected to be complete by February 2016.
