    DT Global is seeking expressions of interest from companies with a proven track record who can support the Jiinue Growth Program to respond the following objectives:

    • Propose a fitting statistically sound methodology and approach for regularly tracking, analyzing, and reporting against JGP outcome and impact indicators. These may include either post-test data collection, i.e. at endline, at regular intervals, e.g. annual or semi-annual, for a sample of firms that received project support in that given period), or pre/post-test, with data collected both at baseline and end line for a sample of firms that received support in each period.
    • Provide overall management and implementation of surveys and other qualitative research tools according to the project Theory of Change and results frameworks and the methodology proposed.

    • Document the lessons learned from the insights during project surveys. The lesson-learned products are helpful in describing the experiences and interactions of the participants with the project interventions. The document generated will be determined by the JGP project team in consultation with the outcome-monitoring partner.
