UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. In Nepal, UN Women focuses on strengthening women’s voice, agency, and leadership across sectors to advance women’s rights, provide space for women’s meaningful participation, and contribute to tangible differences in their lives. Under the overarching Nepal Country Office’s Strategic Note (SN) for the period 2018-2022, UN Women focuses on two programmatic areas, inclusive governance, and women’s economic empowerment. UN Women Nepal’s Strategic Note 2018-2022 is aligned with, contributes to and is guided by Nepal’s national priorities as described in Nepal’s 14th Three-year Periodic Plan and the 15th Periodic Plan, its commitments to gender equality, and relevant normative frameworks. UN Women Nepal will initiate the formulation of its new Strategic Note, in line with the Nepal UN Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDCF) for 2023-2027 period and UN Women’s Global Strategic Plan. All of the above contribute to fulfilling Nepal's obligations to international treaties and commitments, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Beijing Platform for Action, and to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).
UN Women Nepal is seeking to engage two national consultants on a retainer basis to support the Country Office’s programming on gender responsive and inclusive governance with a focus on access to justice, rule of law, and human rights and women’s economic empowerment.

Core Values and Guiding Principles:
Required Skills and Experience
A two-stage procedure is utilized in evaluating the proposals, with evaluation of the technical proposal being completed prior to any price proposal being compared. Only the price proposal of the applicants who passed the minimum technical score of 70% of the obtainable score of 100 points in the technical qualification evaluation will be evaluated. If required, an interview will be conducted before making the final decision on selection of the consultant.
Technical evaluation criteria:
Only financial proposal of candidates who have attained minimum 70% of the total points in the technical evaluation will be considered and evaluated. In this methodology, the maximum number of points assigned to the financial proposal is allocated to the lowest price proposal. The applicant will propose per day rate for the assignment. All other price proposals receive points in inverse proportion.
A formula is as follows:
p = y (µ/z)
p = points for the financial proposal being evaluated
y = maximum number of points for the financial proposal
µ = price of the lowest priced proposal
z = price of the proposal being evaluated
