UNDP/SOM/CFP/2017/009

 

 

Daldhis (Build Your Country) Project

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • BACKGROUND

 

UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations

 

This Call for Proposals (CFP) is specifically related to Daldhis (Build Your Country) project; the Peace Building Fund in Somalia through the UNDP Somalia Poverty Reduction & Environment Protection (PREP) Programme.

 

Background

 

This project aims to present a renewed commitment to working with local community leaders, elders, formal and informal justice services and newly selected local governments, in collaboration with state ministries, to entrench stability and peace, enhance social service delivery, provide economic opportunities for young men and women and provide an accessible system for resolution of people dispute and determination of their rights. In effect, by improving the demand and the offer of governance, this project constitutes the first concerted programmatic effort to translate the Community Recovery and Extension of State Authority and Accountability (CRESTA) in to practice.

 

The project combines successful elements of past and on-going UN joint programmes aimed at rule of law, local governance, social reconciliation, community stabilization and youth employment. In order to achieve these outcomes, this project proposes to support the implementation of activities from three existing joint programmes, namely the Joint Programme for Local Governance and Decentralized Service Delivery, the Joint Programme for Rule of Law, and the Youth Employment for Somalia through, an area based approach, in Jubbaland and South West State of Somalia.

 

The youth employment component of this project aims to provide the 200 youth at risk (IDPs, refugees, and youth at risk of engaging in illicit activities) with social rehabilitation support, market-based vocational training and education and/or basic business skills (approximately 100 in Jubbaland and 100 in South West) and rehabilitating at least four productive and/or community assets (two in Jubbaland and two in South West), examples might include hospitals, water points, feeder roads and community assets.

 

 

  • OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED OUTPUTS/ DELIVERABLES

 

The objective of this Call for Proposals is to implement the youth employment component of Daldhis Project (Build Your Country);

 

Outcome 2: Communities in South and Central Somalia generate the demand for, and benefit from local governance, security, justice, economic and social solutions.

2.3 Strengthened enabling environment through Youth Engagement / Employment / PPP dialogue and local economic development.

 

 

Detailed scope of work and related outputs and deliverables are provided in the Terms of Reference – Annex 1

 

Final Beneficiaries

  • Evaluation methodology: Quality based under Fixed Budget Selection (QB-FBS)

 

QB-FBS methodology implies that all proposals have the same maximum overall price (which cannot exceed a known fixed budget amount), focusing the selection on the quality of the proposal and the CSO/ NGO proposed approach and methodology. CSO have to provide their best technical proposal and financial breakdown (within the budget) in one single envelope (clearly stating proposed overheads). Evaluation of all technical proposals shall be carried out, in accordance with below outlined evaluation criteria, and the institution which obtains the highest technical score shall be selected. CSOs/ NGOs exceeding the established fixed budget in their financial proposals will be rejected

 

Proposals have to translate community needs into implementable activities by the NGOs/CSOs. Under QB-FBS, assessment focuses on maximizing transfer of value to the beneficiary user within a given budget.

 

  • Budget size and duration

 

As this component of Daldhis project will have two identical sub-projects, one in Baidoa district and the other in Kismayo district, proposals’ amounts should range from a maximum of USD 200,000 for direct interventions in a single community/ activity (in Baidoa or Kismayo districts) to a maximum of USD 400,000 for direct interventions in both Baidoa and Kismayo districts as stated in the ToR. The potential partner who want to apply for the two sub-projects for both locations, should be aware of the criteria of selection. In addition, they should know that based on the criteria, applicants will be evaluated separately for each location.

 

The amount requested in the proposal should be commensurate with the organization’s administrative and financial management capabilities. Project duration will not exceed 12 months. Regarding the budget of the technical proposal of the partner, UNDP retains the right to negotiate with the partner, prior to signing agreement, to ensure value of money.

 

  • SELECTION PROCESS:

 

UNDP will review proposals through a five-step process:

  • determination of eligibility;
  • technical review of eligible proposals;
  • scoring and ranking of the eligible proposals based on the assessment criteria outlined in the previous section to identify highest ranking proposals;

  • Responsible Party Agreement (RPA) signature.
