Description

Assistant Team Leader/Sector Specialist, Final Performance Evaluation for USAID/Haiti’s “Justice Sector Strengthening” Program (JSSP)

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.

Project Objectives:

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 Mid-Term Evaluation (MTE) of USAID/Haiti’s five-year, $24.2 million “Justice Sector Strengthening” Program (JSSP). The purpose of this mid-term performance evaluation is to inform USAID/Haiti about possible mid-course corrections and future program orientation of the “Justice Sector Strengthening” Program (JSSP), whose objective is to expand access to quality justice for Haitian citizens. The evaluation will examine how new processes, mechanisms, and systems established by JSSP have contributed to improving the Haitian judicial system from the perspective of all relevant stakeholders, including beneficiaries. Lessons learned, and recommendations provided through the evaluation report will also guide future programming in areas such as Rule of Law and Human Rights, Judicial Reform, monitoring and evaluation, and other aspects pertaining to the professionalization, independence, and efficiency of the Haitian Justice Sector.
