Consultancy To Undertake A Baseline Study For Danmission’s Change-Based Results Framework

Introduction and Purpose

Danmission is preparing to launch a new change-based Results Framework (RF) that maps societal actors and their potential behavior changes, represented by qualitative outcome indicators. The RF also includes quantitative indicators with a baseline of zero. The Global Results Framework (GRF) is timeless and doesn’t require a baseline or targets, while the country RFs, set for four years, do. The baseline study for the new RF is performance-based, focusing on the current behavior of selected societal actors in Tanzania for each dimension established in the GRF. This will primarily inform future monitoring and evaluation, allowing progress tracking at the outcome level and facilitating informed decision-making during social interventions. The RF and its baseline are tied to the intermediate objectives of Danmission’s work at the outcome level, not the impact level, providing qualitative data on the status specific to Danmission’s country programmes before interventions. Evidence is referenced from program documents and assessment interviews. The consultant is expected to travel to Oar es Salaam, Pemba, Zanzibar, Pwani, Kagera (Karagwe), Mwanza, Shinyanga, Simiyu, Arusha, Mara, and Tanga Regions in Tanzania.

Methodology

The methodology involves gathering secondary data, not from direct observations, but from third-party accounts, project documents, and assessments made by selected sources such as Danmission’s Programme Managers (PMs) and knowledgeable individuals. The data will be collected through interviews with these sources. The consultant will interview the Danmission PMs to get their immediate assessment of the societal actors’ current behavior using the Country Results framework and identify the most relevant partners for further interviews. The selected partners will then be interviewed to get their assessment and justification of the societal actors’ behavior. Finally, the consultant will conduct the final assessment and compile a short

justification for each behavior assessed.
