The Qualitative Specialist is a key staff member and should remain engaged in implementation of the task order throughout the life of the assignment.
The Qualitative Analyst is a Kenyan professional with practical work experience in qualitative research and studies such that he can assume full responsibility for fulfilling the qualitative study requirements of this Task Order. He should have in-depth knowledge of potential challenges anticipated with qualitative data collection in fragile environments; professional knowledge of qualitative data processing applications (NVivo) and strong communication and inter-personal skills required for working with multi-culture, multi-lingual and multi-ethnic teams in fragile environments.
As part of SPSS, IBTCI seeks candidates for the position of Contribution Analyst for an evaluation of the Transition Initiatives for Stabilization Plus (TIS+) program. TIS+ seeks to promote stabilization in Somalia through good governance, economic growth and countering violent extremism. The purpose of the activity is to foster participatory processes that promote good governance and community cohesion. TIS+ activities will contribute to improvements in government service delivery, leading to strengthened governance and community cohesion. Communities will be supported with access to livelihoods, income generation, and basic community infrastructure.
The TIS+ task order will run from November 2016 to July 2019. This position will run from December 2016 – August 2017, with the possibility of extending for the remaining two years, and the estimated total LOE for the first year is 126 days. The work will occur in phases throughout the 3 years and most of the work will be Nairobi based with travel to Somalia.
The objectives of the TIS+ program are to:
1) Increase confidence in governance based on equitable participation in decision-making and management of community assets.
2) Empower community and government representatives to engage with the private sector and development actors in a collaborative process for community growth.
3) Increase Somali engagement in creating a more stable future.
4) Support inclusive, sustainable development by reducing gender gaps in stabilization and development.
TIS+ will use a cluster-based approach to the selection of geographic areas in which to intervene. Activities will focus on a limited set of clusters at any time, and be rolled out to new clusters as accessibility allows. This will allow the activity to respond to conditions on the ground and maximize efficiency in programming. It also allows them to move into areas as they become liberated and are most in need of stabilization programming.
