Purpose of Request for Proposal

The main objectives of the evaluation study will be to:

  • Assess the impact of HATUTAN’s intervention against project indicators.
  • Identify key school- and household-level factors contributing to HATUTAN’s impact, and map those against project interventions and the project’s Theory of Change.
  • Conduct a gender and power analysis, identifying if and how gender norms and power relationships have shifted over time in HATUTAN and how gender norms and power relationships have affected results. Additionally, the study should assess how gender and power may affect results in HATUTAN II, providing recommendations on key actions to maximize results and reduce inequities.
  • Assess the efficiency of HATUTAN’s intervention and its cost-effectiveness.
  • Establish baseline values for HATUTAN II’s key indicators and inform the setup of benchmarks against which the performance and impact of the project will be measured for accountability and learning purposes.
  • Identify key factors contributing to HATUTAN II’s expected outcomes, thus assessing the validity of its Theory of Change.
  • Validate assumptions made in project design and conduct an updated context analysis.
  • Identify areas for adaptation in HATUTAN II’s activities and modalities of implementation.
  • Generate evidence to contribute to the programs’ learning agenda and McGovern-Dole Program’s global Learning Agenda; to the Government of Timor-Leste (GOTL)’s implementation of the national School Feeding Program (SFP); to education sector planning in the country; and to the design and refinement of public interventions on school health and hygiene in Timor-Leste.
