USAID/Haiti’s Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA)
Social Impact (SI) is a Washington, DC-area international development management consulting firm. SI’s mission is to improve the effectiveness of international development programs in improving people’s lives. We provide a full range of management consulting, technical assistance, and training services to strengthen international development programs, organizations, and policies. We provide services globally in the areas of monitoring and evaluation, strategic planning, project and program design, organizational capacity building, and gender and social analysis. SI services crosscut all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. SI’s clients include US government agencies such as the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the US Department of State, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and non-profits.
In May 2017, USAID awarded SI the Haiti Evaluation Survey Services (ESS) contract to conduct baseline, mid-term, and final evaluations for a wide range of projects currently being implemented throughout the country, with more emphasis around USAID’s development corridors of Port-au-Prince, Saint Marc, and Cap-Haitian. The contract also includes sector assessments to inform the Mission in designing its new Strategic Framework (2018-2020).
Haiti ESS is conducting a Rapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA). A RERA is a “good enough” situation analysis of educational institutions, learners, and their communities as a dynamic system of relationships involving assets and multiple contextual risks . In line with its unfolding strategic framework and building upon the successes and learnings of USAID’s previous work in early grade reading in Haiti, this analysis will focus on the unique barriers to learning and assets and capacities of each school community. This analysis will better illuminate the effects of the recent school closures on disparate populations, i.e. who is impacted and how as well as uncover coping strategies that can be strengthened. This activity will also provide a snapshot of the education system and identify key actors and entry points to support the Mission’s goal of a flexible, resilient system.
Haiti ESS is seeking an expat or Haitian Social Cohesion Specialist (SCS) consultant to assist the RERA Team Leader with the technical and management aspects of the RERA. The Assistant Team Leader/Contextual Risk Specialist will be expected to work closely with the Team Leader as well as SI project management team to ensure quality and timely deliverables.
The SCS will be a core member of the RERA Team and carry out a RERA in accordance with the USAID RERA Toolkit [ https://eccnetwork.net/wp-content/uploads/RERAToolKit_508.pdf ]. The Specialist shall work under the supervision of the RERA Team Leader.
The RERA level of effort is about 60 days, approximately 12–14 weeks, inclusive of four to six consecutive weeks of data collection and analysis.
**Candidates with Haitian citizenship are strongly encouraged to apply. **

Location: The consultancy will be remote and have three phases: (a) inception and design report, and (b) implementation of primary data collection, and (c) data analysis and final report drafting.
