Australia has advertised for an Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) Specialist to act as a key interlocutor between the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Myanmar Ministry of Education (MoE) on the Myanmar Education Quality Improvement Program (My-EQIP). This position was previously referred to as the 'Technical Coordinator' in the My-EQIP DRAFT Investment Design, posted on this site on 9 August 2016. The Terms of Reference for the ECB Specialist are provided herewith for the information of the market.
The ECB Specialist will be directly contracted to DFAT. A Contractor, engaged through the Aid Advisory Services panel, is providing support for the recruitment, mobilisation and ongoing support costs of the ECB Specialist. The Contractor will not be engaged in the delivery of services or be exposed to any information that would provide them an unfair advantage in a potential bid for the My-EQIP tender. Any information the Contractor has access to as part of the recruitment for the ECB Specialist will be released at industry briefing and through addenda.
Valued at $20 million over four years (January 2017 to December 2020), My-EQIP aims to improve MoE's evaluation capacity and systems at all levels to improve decision-making and contribute to improved education policy, planning, budgeting, management and teaching.

If all parties agree, the Specialist will be offered the opportunity to continue in the role for the duration of the program to 2020.
