Are you passionate about driving programs focused on foreign assistance? Do you want to be part of an organization that offers meaningful assignments and opportunities to expand your skills and expertise? At Dexis, you will experience a corporate culture of inclusiveness, fairness, and trust. You will be given the means and mentorship needed to succeed, and your creativity will be rewarded.
In support of the USAID/Kenya and East Africa (USAID/KEA) Mission, Dexis is implementing the Mission Organizational Development Support (MODS) project to provide organizational development and capacity building technical assistance to strengthen the role and capacity of Local Development Organizations (LDOs), existing local Kenyan entities, and local governments to foster ownership, locally-led development and implementation of sustainable development programs.
Dexis is seeking services from Kenya-based consultants to provide organizational development and capacity building technical assistance to Kenyan local development organizations (LDOs) to strengthen locally led sustainable development programs.
Dexis is seeking consultants that can deliver the services in a range of geographies within Kenya. Respondents are not required to demonstrate coverage across all geographies; rather, more localized consultants with specific geographic expertise and language skills are welcome to respond. All respondents should clearly state the specific geographies where they have demonstrated access and experience.
Dexis anticipates issuing consultant agreements to individuals. Dexis may issue multiple consultant agreements to ensure coverage across geographical and technical and functional service areas. The release of this SOW does not obligate Dexis to enter into a contract nor does it obligate Dexis to pay any costs incurred in the preparation of submission of any response. The not-to-exceed ceiling for each individual consulting agreement under this SOW is 5,000,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES).
On an as-needed basis, consultants that may be selected through this SOW process will be tasked to deliver targeted technical assistance to the LDOs and other organizations in accordance with the organization’s Technical Assistance Implementation Plans. The technical assistance will be tailor made to meet the needs of the LDOs currently at different stages of development and experience. Specific tasks, deliverables, and timelines will be defined when Dexis contacts the individuals to request technical services.
Technical assistance and capacity building activities may include delivering services in the following illustrative technical and functional areas:
- Organizational Capacity assessments (OCA)
- Incorporation and legal compliance of for-profit and non-profit organizations
- Financial management, systems strengthening and compliance
- Procurement & logistics
- Strategic planning
- Strategic communication
- Resource mobilization and sustainability planning
- Program management
- Monitoring and evaluation and knowledge management of projects
- Human resources management
- Organizational governance, leadership and management and board strengthening
- Advocacy, networking and alliance building
- Grants management and USAID compliance
- Gender and youth engagement
Respondents do not need to demonstrate individual experience in all of these technical areas; rather, successful responses will clearly delineate their specific areas of expertise. Dexis may issue multiple consultant agreements to ensure coverage across geographical and technical and functional service areas.
Dexis may engage with and provide technical assistance to LDOs in all 47 counties in Kenya. Although technical assistance activities may be sequenced so that LDOs in different counties receive assistance on different timelines, the MODS program is anticipating the possibility of work across Kenya. Therefore, Dexis is seeking consultants that can deliver the services outlined in this SOW in a range of geographies.
Tasks & Responsibilities:
General tasks and responsibilities will be aligned with the technical assistance and capacity building activities as outlined in this statement of work. Specific tasks and responsibilities will be defined in specific statements of work that will be issued as Dexis receives work orders from USAID/KEA to deliver assistance to selected LDOs.
The deliverables that the consultants will be responsible for will be defined in specific statements of work that will be issued as Dexis receives work orders from USAID/KEA to deliver assistance to selected LDOs.
The selected consultants will report to Dexis’ MODS Chief of Party.
Individuals are invited to provide curricula vitae (CVs) and their proposed hourly rates in KES. Any consultants or staff who support the Kenya MODS programs will be placed in established labor categories. The established labor categories and minimum requirements are as follows:
- Senior-level Technical Specialist: Master’s degree with 8 years of relevant experience, or Bachelor’s degree with 10 years of relevant experience;
- Mid-level Technical Associate: Master’s degree with 2 years of relevant experience, or Bachelor’s degree with 4 years of relevant experience;
- Junior-level Technical Assistant: Bachelor’s degree with 2 years of relevant experience.
Responses should be sent via email to USAIDKenyaMODS@dexisonline.com no later than January 30, 2020, 5:00pm Eastern Africa Time (EAT). Emails should contain the phrase “MODS Organizational Development Support SOW Response” and the name of the individual.
