The MEASURE Evaluation project is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded cooperative agreement led by the Carolina Population Center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). MEASURE Evaluation seeks to strengthen monitoring and evaluation functions and systems and build individual, organizational, and national capacity to assess the effectiveness of public health interventions.

MEASURE Evaluation seeks one to two research organization(s) to serve as our local Botswanan partner(s) for data collection and management for a mixed methods outcome evaluation of OVC services in Botswana. This request for applications (RFA) is limited to data collection and management of a baseline quantitative component and a retrospective qualitative component of the evaluation.  The purpose of this RFA is to determine the organization(s) best suited to play these roles. The successful applicant(s) will demonstrate the superior technical, logistical, and organizational capacity needed to conduct a large-scale quantitative study and a retrospective qualitative study. Applicants may respond to the quantitative component only, qualitative component only, or both components of this RFA.  If one to two successful applicant(s) are selected, they will be contracted through UNC-C
