Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey

Palladium, under the USAID funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) project, works with key stakeholders to advance health policy and financing for family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal and newborn health at national and subnational levels. The project aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, with an emphasis on voluntary, rights-based health programs, and by strengthening in-country partners' capacity to navigate complex environments for effective policy design, implementation, and financing aligned to the existing priorities.

Palladium, on behalf of HP+, is seeking an organization that can implement a nationally representative multiple indicator cluster survey (MICS), with a preference for building on concurrent surveys being funded by other sources. The survey should focus on topics related to new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development data landscape in Malawi especially those related to health. The selected organization should propose ways to either implement a survey or how the additional funding will enhance existing efforts.

The selected organization may be a local or international non-profit, for-profit or government institution. Only firms legally established in Malawi will be considered. Firms must be familiar with survey methodology and have a proven record of implementing MICS to be considered. Palladium expects to issue the selected organization a fixed amount award with payment tied to specific deliverables/milestones. The total amount awarded shall NOT exced $654,600.

All interested organizations should submit electronic copies of their technical and financial proposals to Stephanie by May 15th, 2019. If you have further queries, please contact Ms. Stephanie Mlynar at

The proposal requirements are specified in the Request for Proposals document that can be downloaded in the Download Document link on this page. Further detail on the scope of the activity and submission instructions can be found in the Request for Proposal document.
