Reg. no.: 58/17 PRRECI
Categorie: M&E
Launch date: 2017-10-26 10:00:00
Deadline: 2017-11-16 10:00:00

In order to perform the annual evaluation of project beneficiaries, CPIU-IFAD is seeking a local service providing company to conduct a survey, annual data collection from project beneficiaries.

Based on an agreed questionnaire and being provided with a beneficiary list and the baseline database, the contracted company is entitled to connect with project beneficiaries and acquire the needed information. The completed questionnaires are to be introduced in an electronic form in SPSS compatible format that will allow for future analysis by the project M&E unit.

Beneficiaries are to be contacted via phone, email, fax, and all the measures to ensure a high accuracy and response rate should be taken into account.

Another stage will comprise an activity report including actual sample sizes, main issues and logistical recommendations.

The sample size and sampling lists will be provided by the M&E department and will be calculated using standard statistical formulae, using 95 per cent confidence level and with the margin of error at 5 per cent as the first choice. The sample will ensure proportionality and representativeness of the different project target groups and type of activities.  As a guide, the total population for each group and the target sample size under reference is of:

Support group

Total population

Target sample size

SME financing

50

45

Youth entrepreneur financing

223

150

Micro-entrepreneur financing

351

200

SCA Trainings

71

50

Total

695

445

 

Thus, the minimum total sample size for the project will be: 445 beneficiaries. The sample size should also take into account the non-response rate, which, based on previous experience in the country is quite high due to low institutionalization of beneficiaries.

DATA COLLECTION

The data collection methodology will have a different approach for separate target beneficiaries, as follows:

·         Data from Micro-entrepreneurs and trainings will be collected through phone interviews with project beneficiaries. Collected data will be presented in electronic format.

·         Data from SMEs and Young entrepreneurs can be collected through emails, fax, mail, personal deliveries. This is due to the fact that questionnaires include data from the balance sheet of their registered enterprises and require consultations with their accountant. Beneficiaries will be contacted via phone and asked for a valid e-mail, fax number or any other means comfortable to them to receive the questionnaire. Upon completion, beneficiaries are to return completed questionnaires.

·         The company should ensure maximum degree of diplomacy and privacy of data and to assist beneficiaries in any logistical needs.

·         To minimize errors associated with data entry, random spot checks on 10% of beneficiaries/questionnaires have to be conducted.

TIMEFRAME

The tentative timing for activities is as follows:

1.       November –December: Approval of methodology, transfer of beneficiary and sampling lists.

2.       December: Data collection from Micro-entrepreneurs and beneficiaries of trainings, awareness campaign. Due to the fact that information collected from the micro-entrepreneurs and trainings does not involve financial reports, data collection can be conducted in December, prior to the financial closure of the year.

3.       December:; awareness campaign for SMEs and Young Entrepreneurs on preparation of financial reports and needed data within the specified timeframe.

4.       January-February: Data collection from SMEs and Young entrepreneurs.

5.       March: Final database clearance, crosschecking, activity report.
