IEO undertakes independent country programme evaluations (ICPEs) – also known as Assessments of Development Results (ADRs) – in an annual cycle. The ADRs cover the UNDP country portfolio over a 5-8 year period and are timed to provide evaluative evidence to feed into the development of new UNDP Country Programme Documents.

Consultants are responsible for collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative information for the evaluation’s design and conduct.
This call for expressions of interest (EOI) provides a profile of the expected responsibilities of evaluation consultants for the 2017 ADRs. The specific Terms of Reference for each evaluation team member will be provided at a later date to interested candidates who meet the required qualifications set out in this EOI. The duration of each consultancy will vary depending on the ADR and specific tasks, and is expected to range between 30 and 60 work days.
