USAID/Rwanda Awards ME&A 5-Year Collaboration, Learning, and Adapting Activity
Improving USAID/Rwanda’s performance monitoring, evaluation, collaboration, learning, and adapting processes to incorporate data in all decision-making is the objective of the new ME&A-led Collaboration, Learning and Adapting Activity (CLAA).
USAID/Rwanda recently awarded ME&A the $9.8 million activity, running from December 2021 to December 2026, designed to enhance the U.S.-Rwanda partnership and enable the Mission to achieve the goal of the Rwanda Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) 2020-2025 – strengthened human capital, robust private sector, and accountable institutions required to advance self-reliance. The CLAA’s key personnel, based in Kigali, will consist of a chief of party, senior ME&L advisor, and a CLAA advisor carrying out four main tasks:
- Assess strengths and challenges in the Mission’s capacity and systems for continuous learning and adaptation and collaborate with Mission staff to develop targeted approaches to strengthen these areas
- Provide data analysis, synthesis, and visualization services
- Provide facilitation services that enable internal and external collaboration
- Enable USAID/Rwanda to better support and partner with local monitoring, evaluating, and learning (ME&L) experts to carry out monitoring, evaluations and assessments
USAID/Rwanda awarded this task order to ME&A under the USAID/Kenya and East Africa Evaluation, Assessments, and Analyses Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract. ME&A’s services under the IDIQ include designing and implementing quantitative and/or qualitative evaluations studies, assessments, and analyses; knowledge management; and developing and delivering trainings for USAID staff, implementing partners, community organizations, and national and regional government partners.
