Request for Proposal - Abt Associates, Inc



Job Description

RFP No. TZMR2

The market for priority health products and services in Tanzania is characterized by a high level of government and donor interventions. Recent assessments funded by the Gates Foundation, UN Population Fund (UNFPA), and USAID have highlighted the degree to which condom programs rely on commodities donated by international actors such as USAID and the Global Fund. This increased reliance on subsidies in the condom market places its sustainability in jeopardy if donors make sudden changes to their donation programs.

The use of total market approaches (TMA) can help address these concerns. A TMA typically refers to efforts to coordinate strategies and investments across donors and public and private health sector actors to increase the equity, efficiency and sustainability of health markets. USAID/Tanzania engaged with the SHOPS Plus project to support the implementation of TMAs for condoms in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOH-CDGEC) and other key stakeholders.

Abt Associates Inc. (Abt) invites qualified organizations with expertise in qualitative research to submit a technical and cost proposal for the provision of qualitative data collection (focus group discussions), translation, and transcription that will be used by Abt’s SHOPS Plus project to inform total market approaches (TMAs) for condoms in Tanzania. Preference will be given to firms who can demonstrate that they can implement focus group discussions (FGDs) on family planning topics with cost-efficiency. Experience implementing market research related to health, and specifically family planning, is a plus.
  • Questions may be submitted no later than 5:00 pm (EAT) April 20, 2018
  • All responses to questions will be issued to Offerors as an amendment to this RFP no later than 5:00 pm EAT April 24, 2018
  • Interested parties should submit their final proposals no later than 5:00 pm (EAT) May 1, 2018
  • The ceiling amount for this award cannot exceed TZS45 million (inclusive of taxes).
Please send questions and proposals to [email protected]

Meaning-making Research Initiatives : Special call for female researchers

Established in 1973, the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) promotes research by African and Diaspora scholars in the Social Sciences and Humanities that can contribute to a better understanding of Africa and its place in the world. This is motivated by the belief that sound knowledge of the continent is invaluable to efforts to make Africa a better place for its peoples and societies.

In 2017 CODESRIA introduced the Meaning-making Research Initiative (MRI) as its principal tool for supporting research. Like previous tools, MRI focuses on supporting research that contributes to agendas for imagining, planning and creating African futures. MRI replaced five tools that CODESRIA had deployed in previous years to support research. These were National Working Groups (NWG), Multinational Working Groups (MWG), Comparative Research Networks (CRN), Transnational Working Groups (TWG) and postdoctoral grants. One goal of this move is to increase the legibility and visibility of the research supported by the Council by collapsing previous tools into a single initiative for supporting research.

The adoption of MRI marks a recommitment to the tasks of interpretation and explanation that saw CODESRIA produce ground-breaking work on thematic issues such as democratization and economic reform in Africa. MRI aggressively pushes scholars to build on the close observation of African social realities to grapple with the tasks of explanation and interpretation. The initiative will reinforce support for researchers. It will also better integrate these scholars into the Council’s work. Further, it will offer scholars more varied ways to present their work, including through books, journal articles and policy interventions.

Key selection criteria: Projects funded under this initiative should meet most of the following criteria:
  • Propose research on important aspects of African social realities that fall under CODESRIA’s priority themes as outlined in the CODESRIA Strategic Plan;
  • Be guided by clear questions that explore puzzling aspects of the social realities of Africa and its position in the world while at the same time reflecting an interest in questions of diversity including the gendered one;
  • Be grounded in the thorough exploration of the continent’s social realities and history;
  • Engage constructively and rigorously with African futures;
  • Be theoretically ambitious with a clear goal of providing new and innovative ways of understanding and making sense of African social realities;
  • Explore multiple spatial, temporal and sectoral settings where this contributes to the process of meaning-making;
  • Demonstrate familiarity with knowledge already produced by CODESRIA on the subject researched.
Thematic priorities: All applications must engage with CODESRIA’s 2017-2021 thematic priorities and cross-cutting issues:
  1. Democratic processes, governance, citizenship and security in Africa: Security challenges and ways of grappling with them, transitional justice, democratization, citizenship and migration, the rule of law and human rights, governance processes and mechanisms at local, national and international levels, language, the changing boundaries and configurations of states and communities
  2. Ecologies, economies and societies in Africa: Land, natural resource management, climate change, demographic change, urbanization, food security and poverty in Africa and technological innovation as well as the interaction of human populations with the rest of the environment in Africa, the forms it takes, its histories and trajectories and its impact on a broad set of sectors including the continent’s burgeoning economies
  3. Higher education dynamics in a changing Africa: The role of higher education in economic and political transformation in Africa, the rapid transformation in the African higher education landscape, the reform of African higher education and innovations in higher education leadership
Cross-cutting themes: Applications should indicate the ways in which some of these cross-cutting themes are integrated in their proposals: these are gender, generations, inequality, rurality and urbanity, memory and history, as well as futures and alternatives

Special call for female scholars

Increasing the participation of female scholars in the work and governance of CODESRIA has been a long-term goal of the Council. This is because of the marginal role that women have often occupied in the African academy and research landscape. The Council has over the years made some progress in increasing the participation of female scholars in its life and work as well as the consideration of gender in the work it supports though programs like its Gender Institute and Gender Symposium. We think the Council can do more in this regard. This special MRI call is part of a package of measures deployed to build on past advances and drastically increase the involvement of female scholars in the work and life of CODESRIA during the 2017-2021 strategic cycle.

The call invites applications from groups only. No individual awards will be granted. All projects should: 1) be headed by female scholars; and 2) have only women as members. Only in exceptional cases, and with proper justification, will the Council admit a group that has a majority of female applicants with a small number of male members. The members of a group may be from one country or multiple countries. Each group should have between 3 and 5 members and should take into account CODESRIA’s core principles of linguistic, intergenerational and interdisciplinary diversity. All members of a group should have a demonstrated ability to contribute meaningfully to the work of the group. The Council will offer up to USD 35,000 for each winning project.

How to apply

Interested applicants should submit application packages containing the following required materials as Word documents. Please note that applications that lack any of these elements will be discarded.
  • A proposal with the following clearly titled sections: an introduction; statement and contextualization of research question; brief review of literature and/or competing hypotheses; study design and research methodology; theoretical and practical significance of the study; research plan and a brief summary of budget. Proposals must be submitted as Word documents and should not exceed 10 pages long (font type: Times New Roman; font size: 12; line spacing: double).
  • Completed budget template: A completed version of the budget template attached to this call. Budgets should take into consideration the fact that these grants have strict 16-month lifespans.
  • Annotated plan of deliverables: One-page annotated table of contents for two scholarly articles.
  • A cover letter listing full details- names, email and physical addresses and telephone number- of the members and coordinator of the project
  • CVs of the members of the project
  • Institutional affiliation: A letter indicating institutional affiliation of each member
  • Identification sheet: A completed version of the identification sheet attached to this call. Please leave the document as an Excel file.
The deadline for submission of applications for both individual and group grants is May 31, 2018. Notification of the result of the selection process will be done by July 30, 2018 and applicants who will not hear from us by then should consider their applications unsuccessful. All applications should be sent by email to “2018 Meaning-making Research Initiatives,” CODESRIA at [email protected]. When sending your email kindly use the subject line ‘MRI FS 2018’ to facilitate the processing of your application.
