The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is undertaking Independent Country Programme Evaluations (ICPE) in:
South Caucus and Western CIS: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus and Georgia
Central Asia: Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
The ICPEs will inform the elaboration of the new country programmes with evaluative evidence of UNDPs contribution to the countries national development priorities. The ICPEs will examine UNDP’s work at the country level during the ongoing programme cycle 2016-2020.

The consultants should have substantial work experience and knowledge of the region, preferably in the countries under review. In addition to the country experience, the consultants should demonstrate evaluation expertise in one or more UNDP work areas in the countries, which include:

The duration of the consultancy will vary depending on the specific tasks and the size of the UNDP country programme and range between 30-35 days per country programme (including field missions), spread between January-October 2019. The country data collection missions are scheduled from 29 April to 31 May 2019.
