Description

In-Country Coordinator, DoS Evaluation of the United States Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, Nepal

Social Impact is a global development management consulting firm. We provide monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997 we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as US government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits.

Proposal Objective:

Social Impact is preparing to bid on the upcoming U.S. Department of State Evaluation of the United States Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation. Administered by the Cultural Heritage Center in ECA at the U.S. Department of State, the AFCP supports the conservation of sites, objects, and forms of traditional cultural expression in less developed countries around the world. Since 2001, the fund has awarded $74 million for nearly 1,000 projects in 130 countries and the West Bank.

The purpose of this evaluation is to examine the degree to which AFCP is meeting its stated goals and its impact on advancing DOS strategic policy priorities. More specifically, the evaluation will offer analyses of (1) how AFCP-funded projects are impacting foreign publics, (2) how the projects are helping advance U.S. diplomatic objectives in-country, and (3) how the program’s overall effectiveness can be improved.  This evaluation will examine multiple (approximately 15) AFCP projects around the world. The estimated period of performance is October 2018-August 2019.
