The ART Initiative – Hub for Territorial Partnerships is a UNDP global project that seeks to harness the potential of territorial partnerships by supporting decentralized cooperation, South-South and triangular cooperation. ART is therefore an entry point for international cooperation actors interested in harmonizing their respective actions in support of national and sub-national policies for sustainable local human development. ART aims to strengthen and expand the existing alliance between UNDP and decentralized cooperation partners in support of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the local level. ART also seeks to strengthen the potential and role of Local and Regional Governments (LRGs) as development partners and to promote the principles of development cooperation effectiveness in support of the localization of the SDGs.
In a global context marked by common challenges that require partnerships and complex solutions to "leave no one behind", UNDP ART has partnered with many decentralized cooperation partners to jointly promote innovative initiatives that contribute to the localization of the 2030 Agenda. Over the years, the initiative has contributed to demonstrating that regional, municipal and local authorities, together with other local governance stakeholders, have a key role to play in promoting sustainable development and making the SDGs part of national and local development strategies and policies.
Duties and Responsibilities
UNDP and the Andalusian Development Agency (Agencia Andaluza de Cooperación Internacional- AACID) are currently implementing an initiative that seeks to localize the SDGs in partner countries within the framework of a strategic partnership agreement signed in 2018. One of the components of this initiative is an awareness-raising and communications campaign on the SDGs to be designed and implemented in Andalusia. This campaign is to be conducted in coordination with various communication actions that are currently being carried out by AACID, including various thematic campaigns.
The consultant will work under the direct supervision and in close collaboration with the AACID and UNDP teams. In particular, he/she will undertake the following duties:
To coordinate and develop awareness and communication campaigns within the framework of the UNDP-AACID collaboration on the SDGs and the fulfilment of the Agenda 2030 by various actors in their respective areas of operation.
To provide overall support to the organization of two thematic dialogues on the SDGs and a global conference on SDG monitoring and evaluation in Andalusia.
To strengthen communication efforts to showcase the work conducted within the framework of the UNDP-AACID initiative in target countries.
To strengthen joint UNDP-AACID actions on the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda with a special focus on the main awareness-raising and communication campaigns developed within the framework of their partnership.
To influence policy dialogues and debates through the joint design (and participation) in events and initiatives of interest for the international cooperation sector and the fulfilment of the 2030 Agenda within the framework of the UNDP-AACID partnership.
Required Skills and Experience
Application Submission Process:
Interested consultants/companies must submit the following documents/information to demonstrate their qualifications. Please group them into one (1) single PDF document as the application only allows you to upload one document:
Financial Proposal that indicates the all-inclusive fixed total contract price in Euro or US Dollars. All other travel related costs should be foreseen in the proposal. The proposal shall be provided as per the financial proposal template available here: http://procurement-notices.undp.org/view_file.cfm?doc_id=45780 and needs to be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 January 2020. The proposals should be sent via email with the following subject heading: “Financial Proposal- Communications Consultancy- AACD-UNDP”. Proposals received after the deadline will be rejected. In order to assist the requesting unit in the comparison of financial proposals, the financial proposal should be all-inclusive and include a breakdown. The term ‘all-inclusive’ implies that all costs (professional fees, communications, utilities, consumables, insurance, etc.) that could possibly be incurred by the Contractor are already factored into the financial proposal.
Criteria for Evaluation of Proposal:
Only those applications which are responsive and compliant will be evaluated. Offers will be evaluated according to the Combined Scoring method – where the educational background, experience on similar assignments, letter of interest and brief methodology will be weighted at 70% and the price proposal will weigh as 30% of the total scoring. The applicant receiving the Highest Combined Score that has also accepted UNDP’s General Terms and Conditions will be awarded the contract. Only Consultants obtaining a minimum of 70% on the Technical evaluation would be considered for the Financial Evaluation.
Technical Criteria - 70% of total evaluation – max. 100 points:
Financial Criteria - 30% of total evaluation – max. 30 points
The following formula will be used to evaluate financial proposal:
p = y (µ/z), where;
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.
Consultants are responsible for ensuring they have vaccinations/inoculations when travelling to certain countries, as designated by the UN Medical Director. Consultants are also required to comply with the UN security directives set forth under dss.un.org
General Terms and conditions as well as other related documents can be found under: http://on.undp.org/t7fJs
