Period of Performance

Statement of Work 

IRI is seeking a consultant to draft a baseline evaluation report for its’ CEPPS-funded Tunisia  Political Transitions Project. The evaluation will inform IRI’s work on supporting civil  society, civic education initiatives, and political party development in Tunisia. To do so the  consultant will: 

  • Participate in three meetings (in person or teleconference) with the data collection  team 

1) To receive background information and necessary context and provide  feedback on the evaluation methodology and Scope of Work and finalize next  steps and timeline to complete the work. 

2) To provide an update to the data collection team on progress halfway through  the coding and analysis work. 

3) To review and discuss the suggested key findings with the data collection  team. 

  • Review all data collected through interviews, surveys, and focus group discussions.  The data includes transcripts, notes, and recordings from approximately 20-25  interviews. 
  • Clean and organize all data collected into easy to read and navigate format using  either Microsoft Word or Excel.  
  • Work with the data collection team (based in DC) to develop codes for the initial data  analysis process. The consultant will first provide a list of suggested codes, based on  an initial review of the data. The consultant will then share the suggested codes with  the data collection team and will engage in conversation about the codes, ultimately  coming to a decision on the final codes that will guide the data analysis process.  
  • Conduct initial analysis of the data, suggest key findings based on that analysis and  provide the suggested key findings in a written format to the data collection team.  Use and closely follow all templates and style guides provided by IRI.  Provide an outline of the final report.  
  • Draft a full evaluation report.  
  • Contact the data collection team and other program team members anytime  questions arise.  

Technical Proposals 

All proposals submitted to IRI must include: 

  1. Information addressing Bidder’s experience in providing each of the services  identified in the above Statement of Work and Bidder’s proposed specific approach  for providing those services to IRI under this contract, including sufficient  information to determine a clear definition of services as it relates to other providers  that may be involved. 
  2. The name, address, and telephone and facsimile numbers of the Bidder (and  electronic address if available). If the Bidder is a firm, name(s) should be provided for  individuals authorized to conduct business on behalf of the firm.  
  3. Bidders may provide a list of up to three references for work performed of a similar  nature during the last three years, along with contact details. IRI may contact the  references to evaluate past performance. 
  4. If the Bidder is a U.S. organization/resident, or a foreign organization/resident which  has income effectively connected with the conduct of activities in the U.S. or has an  office or a place of business or a fiscal paying agent in the U.S., the information  submitted must contain Bidder’s Taxpayer Identification Number. 
  5. Proposals will not exceed 5 pages (not including cover page). 
  6. Proposals must contain  
  7. CV/resume 
  8. Writing sample taken from a report demonstrating evaluation and data  analysis experience 

Price Proposals 

Bidders must propose a firm-fixed Unit Price for each of the deliverables identified below  and in the format of the table below. The Bidder’s pricing must be valid for at least 60 (sixty)  calendar days after the due date for proposal submission. The proposed Unit Price should be  fixed and inclusive of all costs to perform, including inspection services, transportation,  taxes, import duties (if any), and other levies. To the extent that a Bidder proposed to include  any pricing not reflected in the table below, such pricing must be fully described in the  proposal. Proposals must be submitted in USD, payments under any resulting contract will  be made in this currency.

Evaluation and Award Process 

  1. IRI may contact any Bidder for clarification or additional information, but Bidders are  advised that IRI intends to evaluate the offers based on the written proposals, without  discussions, and reserves the right to make decisions based solely on the information  provided with the initial proposals. IRI may but is not obligated to conduct additional  negotiations with the most highly rated Bidders prior to award of a contract, and may  at its sole discretion elect to issue contracts to one or more Bidders. 
  2. Mathematical errors will be corrected in the following manner: If a discrepancy exists  between the total price proposed and the total price resulting from multiplying the  unit price by the corresponding amounts, then the unit price will prevail and the total  price will be corrected. If there is a discrepancy between the numbers written out in  words and the amounts in numbers, then the amount expressed in words will prevail.  If the Bidder does not accept the correction, the offer will be rejected.  
  3. IRI may determine that a proposal is unacceptable if the prices proposed are  materially unbalanced between line items or sub-line items. Unbalanced pricing  exists when, despite an acceptable total evaluated price, the price of one or more  contract line items is significantly overstated or understated as indicated by the  application of cost or price analysis techniques. A proposal may be rejected if IRI  determines that the lack of balance poses an unacceptable risk.  
  4. IRI will conduct a source selection based as follows: 

Best value: 

IRI intends to make an award to the responsible Bidder based on the following evaluation factors: 

  1. a) Technical evaluation, (including technical capabilities, proposed  technical approach, and personnel qualifications) – 80 percent 
  • Writing skills in English (based on evaluation of writing sample) – 40 percent 
  • Experience performing similar projects – 40 percent 
  1. b) Price – 20 percent 

IRI intends to evaluate Bidders’ proposals in accordance with these factors and make an  award to the responsible Bidder whose proposal is most advantageous to the program.
