- When is the study expected to begin?
The survey is expected to begin as soon as possible after the supplier has been selected and contracted.
- Is the survey designed by DRC already or will the consultant be required to draft this from scratch?
The survey should be designed by the consultant.
- While the overall duration for the study is said to be 9 weeks, the ToR states that the first draft of the report is expected within five weeks. Is DRC flexible on moving the deadline for the draft report by 1-2 weeks? Can bidders propose a different timeline/workplan while abiding by the overall 9-week duration?
DRC will accept to receive the first draft of the report seven weeks after signing the contract.
- Does DRC have any specific guidelines or preferences regarding conducting FGDs? Given the challenges posed by COVID-19, can bidders propose alternate methods like semi-structured interviews with community members to meet the qualitative requirement? If FGDs are required, will DRC support with the FGD process (selecting participants and facilitating their participation, venue selection, provision of masks/hand sanitizers etc.)
For the purpose of this consultancy, DRC does not have specific guidelines or preferences regarding FGDs. Bidders are able to propose alternative approaches in order to meet the qualitative data collection requirement.
