JOBS AT WFP ZAMBIA - 10/31/2016


The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world's largest humanitarian agency, fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to end global hunger. Every day, WFP works around the globe to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.
The WFP Executive Board approved a new Evaluation Policy for WFP at its 2015 November session, recognizing the contribution evaluation makes to the evidence base for WFP’s impact on the people it serves. The new Evaluation Policy aims to strengthen WFP’s contribution to ending global hunger by embedding evaluation into the heart of its culture of accountability and learning, ensuring that evaluation is planned for, and evaluation findings are comprehensively incorporated into, all WFP’s policies and programs.
We are building a Roster of Evaluation Consultants that will be comprised of highly competent evaluation professionals from around the world who can play a key role in helping to support the achievement of zero hunger.
All applicants will be reviewed and go through a selection and assessment process to demonstrate their technical and organisational capabilities. Successful applicants will be considered for individual consultancy contracts as Junior Evaluators (L1), Evaluators (L2), Intermediate Evaluators (L3), Senior Evaluators (L4) or Team Leaders (L5) in Country Offices or Regional Bureaux.
We intend to reach out to successful applicants to reaffirm their interest in staying in the roster after 12 months.
Strategic Purpose of the Function
WFP’s evaluation function is based on the evaluation principles of independence, credibility and utility. The WFP Evaluation Policy (2016-2021) clearly states that, “All evaluations are conducted by independent consultants” so as to avoid conflict of interest and safeguard independence. The first of the four intended outcomes of the Policy is, “Independent, credible and useful centralized and decentralized evaluations.” “Independence requires impartiality, so that evaluations are free from influences that may bias their selection, conduct, findings, conclusions, recommendations and reporting. WFP is committed to safeguarding the independence and impartiality of all its centralized and decentralized evaluations through the provisions specified in Table 1 and the roles and accountabilities in Section VII.”
In order to commission independent evaluations, WFP Country Offices will hire either firms or individuals. This VA will help to identify evaluators that could be hired by COs or units at HQ other than OEV who are managing their own evaluations. To be able to be hired as a consultant, individuals must be able to show that they are not affiliated to a firm or organisation. If you apply to this roster, questions related to your affiliation will be asked.
