Adam Smith International, through funding from the UK Government (DfID), and on behalf of the Ministry of Health & Sanitation, is looking to procure the services of a firm and advisors to undertake the following:
NATIONAL STUDY ON MARKET OPPORTUNITIES, BARRIERS AND STEPS TO SCALE UP DOMESTIC WATER TREATMENT & STORAGE IN SIERRA LEONE
The study is expected to be undertaken by a local consulting firm, who would work directly with a expert specialist advisor(s). The procurement is split into two Lots, which the bidder may bid for either or both lots. Where the bidder is able to quote for both lots (e.g. through identification and partnership with expert advisors), and mobilise appropriate expertise, this would be seen favourably.
? Lot 1: Local firm that would be the overall project managers, implement the national study, provide all logistical resources for the study, and host/work directly with the international specialist advisor
? Lot 2: Expert advisor(s) to the project (expected up to around 70 days level of effort both remote and in-country input) to give overall expertise on DWTS and social marketing to the project.
The local firm and associated consultants (Lot 1) would be expected to have a strong, demonstrable track record in:
? Project management and undertaking consulting work (particular sector studies)
? Considerable experience managing and implementing national level quantitative and qualitative data collection, including market surveys
? Significant expertise in the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Sector in Sierra Leone, ideally in issues of products based approaches and social marketing
The expert advisor (Lot 2) would be expected to be a senior international specialist in Domestic Water Treatment & Storage, with considerable experience in social marketing approaches in low-income contexts, and expertise developing DWTS strategies and costed scale-up plans. Note – multiple advisors could be proposed in one bid where relevant, to provide the adequate range of expertise required.
Full details of the Terms of Reference and required capacities of the firms/consultants are presented in the bidding documents.
