Call for Expression of Interest – Short Term Technical Assistance to conduct Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) with the 4Children Nigeria Project
Location: Nigeria (Include both desk based review, preparation and travel within Nigeria)
Contract Duration: 60 working days during October 31, 2016 – January 27, 2017
4Children contact persons: Primary-Dr. Itua Obaitua, Case Management and Referral Network Technical Director
Secondary – Dr. Tapfuma Murove, Chief of Party; 4Children Nigeria, David Akpan, Sustainability Director; Faith Lannap, Government System Strengthening Technical Advisor.
Reports To: Louise Stenberg, Senior Advisor, Capacity Development PACT HQ

Background:
In January 2016, 4Children began a two-year, USAID-funded technical assistance (TA) project in Nigeria. The overarching objective of the project is for 4Children supported by USAID and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to provide TA to IPs implementing Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) programming to facilitate the responsible graduation and transition of children, their households, communities, Local Government Areas (LGA) and States; in response to the PEPFAR pivot and aligned with PEPFAR 3.0 priorities.
Currently PEPFAR OVC IPs work in over 100 LGAs in Nigeria, out of which only 32 LGAs have been identified as scale-up LGAs; these 32 LGAs have the highest HIV prevalence and therefore will be prioritized for PEPFAR support. Support to OVC programs in the remaining sustained-support LGAs will be reduced over the course of FY16 and FY17. During this time period, IPs will be responsible for the transition or graduation of 900,000 OVC (300,000 in FY16 and 600,000 in FY17). The technical assistance provided by 4Children over this two-year period is expected to achieve the following:
• Support the development and implementation of costed sustainability plans by States and IPs that support the transition to a Nigerian led OVC response.
• Strengthen the capacity of government systems (LGA and State level) to advocate, plan for, and use funds for OVC.
• Strengthen case management and linkages among, and referrals between, community and clinic based OVC services, including strategies for reaching more children living with HIV (CLHIV) within the OV population.
• Strengthen the technical capacity of IPs to support Civil Society Organization (CSO) in the areas of household economic strengthening, positive parenting, psychosocial support, and early childhood development programming through training, guidance, strategies, and tool development.
• Create strategies for delivering critical OVC services at clinical facilities.
• Provide guidance and examples of interventions targeting adolescent girls and young women that address their increased vulnerability to child protection concerns and HIV, and which can be easily integrated into existing programming.
To successfully address many of the issues related to graduation and transition, OVC programming recognizes that vulnerable children have differing needs dependent on age, gender, health status and family environment. Therefore, a wide range of services and support are required to provide a comprehensive package of services depending upon each individual case. 4Children recognizes that a referral network is a fundamental component of any multi-sectoral and integrated service delivery system. OVC IPs can provide some but not all of the services required to address the multiple issues affecting OVC and their families.
4Children expects that the initial review of existing referral models, tools and protocols used by States and IPs will be conducted in collaboration with the Case Management / Referral Network Rapid Response Group (CMRRG). 4Children will use the ONA methodology to identify strong and weak connections, provide a visual diagnostic of gaps to be addressed within a referral network, and develop strategies for network strengthening and compare networks over time. 4Children will conduct a Training of Trainers (TOT) for Zonal Coordinators and Zonal Case Management Referral Technical Specialists, 16 IPs and selected state counterparts from SMWASD and SACA on the ONA and the survey instrument, which is scheduled to be held during the week of October 31 – November 4. The chosen consultant is expected to attend and actively participate in this training. Thereafter IPs and their State counterparts with support from 4Children, Pact STTA, and the identified consultant will apply the ONA tool to a strategic referral network in each of the 4 project zones. The results will be analysed using Pact’s Capacity Solutions Platform software or the open source network analysis software Gephi and a one-day workshop will be held with the networks and IPs to discuss results and develop an agreed improvement plan to address identified gaps. The identified consultant will work with the Case Management and Referral Technical Director, Government System Strengthening Technical Advisor, Case Management Specialists and Zonal Coordinators in collaboration with IPs and Government representatives to apply the Quality Improvement techniques to identify challenges, test solutions and improve referral network effectiveness.
Objective:
To provide technical assistance to the 4Children project in Nigeria: (1) to review existing models, tools and referral protocols used by States and Implementing Partners (IP), to identify and document promising practices in short briefs and use those to inform the drafting of process guidelines for effective, locally owned and government coordinated referral network; (2) Support IPs and their State counterparts to apply the ONA tool to an existing referral network in need of improvement with support from Zonal State Coordinators and Zonal Case Management Referral Technical Specialists; and (3) Provide support around data collection, analysis, and report writing on the ONA process with IPs, State counterparts, and Zonal staff. The information collected will be analysed using Pact’s Capacity Solutions Platform software or Gephi. Following the analysis, joint teams, which include representatives of government, IPs, and other social service providers, will be equipped to continuously use Quality Improvement (QI) techniques to refine their networks by identifying challenges and testing solutions to address the problem.
Description of Work:

(2.) Work collaboratively with Pact STTA and trained individuals to apply the ONA in 4 strategic referral networks in each of the project zones.

The end deliverable for each session will be key recommendations and an action plan on key activities they will conduct, including roles and responsibilities.
Based on the 4 ONA processes, the consultant will work with zonal partners and Pact STTA to document key outcomes of the feedback workshop and provide guidance on how zonal networks will need to update guidelines, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), tools and training materials for use by States and IPs with health and social service providers. To increase learning, lessons learned and planned strategies will be shared across zones in order to help support innovations and new approaches that come out of the feedback sessions.
(3.) Ensure regular communication with 4Children management, primarily with the Technical Director of Case Management and Referral Network, and the Pact STTA.
• Hold a briefing with 4Children Nigeria and Pact Washington, DC -based staff to receive an overview of the assignment

Background
In January 2016, 4Children began a two-year, USAID- funded technical assistance project in Nigeria. The overarching objective of the SoW is for 4Children to provide Technical Assistance to USAID and CDC IPs in responsible graduation and transition of OVC, households, communities, LGAs and states as part of the PEPFAR pivot and reflective of PEPFAR 3.0 priorities. The SoW also included a focus on supporting prioritized actions and strategies for the geographic areas identified by PEPFAR as scale-up Local Government Areas (LGAs). The technical assistance provided by 4Children over the next two year period will achieve the following:
• Development of guidance, strategies and tools to support improved HES and parenting.
• Strengthened linkages among and referrals between community and clinic based OVC services, including strategies for reaching more Children Living with HIV (CLHIV) within the OVC population.
• Strengthened capacity of government systems (LGA and state level) to advocate, plan for and use funds for OVC.
• Strategies for delivering critical OVC services at clinical facilities.
• Guidance and examples of interventions targeting adolescent girls and young women that address their increased vulnerability to both child protection concerns and HIV and can be easily integrated into existing programming.
• To better raise public awareness of OVC work, strengthen partnerships and improve advocacy efforts, 4Children would like to produce a video documentary that captures key and prevailing situation, results, impact, activities, successes and challenges as well as future direction.
• The documentary will focus on the impact of PEPFAR’s work by highlighting significant success stories of beneficiaries of the intervention across the entire spectrum of OVC programming.
