Third Party Monitoring – Northeast Syria


Dear Prospective Bidders:

Cooperative Housing Foundation International is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) International NGO headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. Cooperative Housing Foundation mission is to create long lasting, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable people across the globe. Cooperative Housing Foundation international currently has programs in more than 27 countries around the world in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Sources of funding include the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Department of State, Department of Labor, and Centers for Disease Control, the United Nations, and private foundations. Our projects include: Economic Development, Financial Inclusion, Governance & Urban Management, Humanitarian Assistance, Food Security & Agriculture, Global Health, Civil Society & Capacity Development, Infrastructure & Construction, and Working with Women & Youth.

With the Syrian conflict nearing its ninth year, 6.5 million people are food insecure, and 9 million are in need of food security assistance. Fighting has damaged agricultural lands and food production infrastructure, causing a significant drop in access to food, an increase in prices of agricultural inputs, and a reduction in livelihoods opportunities. The number of people at risk of food insecurity has remained between 8.7 and 10.5 million since 2017. According to the 2019 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO), nearly half of Syrians spend an estimated 65% of their income on food, and 65% of food insecure households (HH) have adopted negative coping mechanisms related to food consumption.

Building on CHF’s successful OFDA and FFP-funded Syria programs, the 18-month Investing in Nutrition in Syria, Promoting Infrastructure and Resources in the Economy (INSPIRE) program will deliver an integrated package of assistance to meet emergency food needs of the most vulnerable, and support HH and community food security in north Syria. INSPIRE will 1) meet the immediate food needs of 2500 vulnerable HH/15,000 individuals through provision of monthly food baskets; and  2)  support bread production at 4-10 bakeries, serving households in informal camps through distribution of wheat, flour, yeast and through rehabilitation of bakeries and mills.

Therefore, CHF International is seeking an independent contractor to collect monitoring data and serve as a means of triangulating data collected by CHF. As well as conducting baseline/midline/endline, The TPM (Third Party Monitoring) will conduct monthly monitoring of selected target sites and program activities, including PDM and beneficiary satisfaction. Data will be both qualitative and quantitative. In addition, the TPM will conduct periodic quality checks on commodities at selected vendors/warehouses, take random sample of procured items and send them to the laboratory, both in Turkey and KRG for all activities. TPM monitoring reports will be shared with CHF Bi-monthly to evaluate findings and recommend adjustment. The contractor must have at least one consultant who is an expert in food security, agriculture and livelihoods and is very familiar with the FFP Indicators Handbook and WFP’s Technical Guidance Sheet for FCS and rCSI. Baseline/midline/endline survey objective is to assess trends and changes in food security indicators over the life of the project.
