Since 2011, TFCA-Sumatera has supported conservation programs in more than 13 priority conservation areas in Sumatera. More than 89 projects have been funded, including programs on policy improvement, landscape management, species protection, and activities related to the social economic aspect of communities living around forests.
In managing its programs, TFCA-Sumatera are assisted by Area Facilitators in three main areas in Sumatera, namely Leuser Conservation Partnership (LCP), the Facilitator for the Northern Area of Sumatera, located in Medan; and SSS Pundi Sumatera, in charge of the Central and Southern Area of Sumatera, located in Jambi and Lampung, respectively.
Both of these organizations have helped to facilitate TFCA-Sumatera projects for two periods, with the following roles and function:
1) Monitoring and assistance, both from technical and financial aspect of the program;
2) Building the capacity of partners and partnership; and
3) Communication and Knowledge Management.
The working duration for the second period will end at the end of November 2021 for the Northern Area Facilitator, and 31 December 2021 for the Central and Southern Area Facilitator.
Therefore, before the end of the area facilitators’ working period, we are planning to conduct an evaluation process on the activity and performance of the Area Facilitators in these three areas.
The evaluation will be conducted by a third party (external). Therefore, the Administrator of TFCA Sumatera is inviting various Organizations, Companies, and Groups (a group of independent individuals) to send their proposal and participate in the selection of external evaluator consultant for the Area Facilitators of TFCA Sumatera, through the external consultancy services procurement.
The committee also provides the opportunity for potential consultants to engage in a question and answer process via email on 2 July 2021.
Proposal submission deadline: 12 July 2021
