Palladium, and the USAID funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) project, are providing Technical Assistance support to Government, donors and civil society partners in multiple countries to assess key areas of sustainability for the national AIDS program, and to develop a transition and sustainability roadmaps for the national AIDS at TB programs as external HIV funding decreases and countries transition from high levels of external donor funding and technical assistance towards more reliance on domestic resources and programming.
Palladium International, LLC, on behalf of HP+, is seeking a Botswanan organization to support its social contracting sustainability work for the national AIDs response in Botswana in three primary activities. The selected firm will document the current process by which MOH and NACA channel funds to NGOs for HIV-related services in order to create a summary/analysis of the current process used by NACA to provide funding to NGOs/CSOs. It will also identify a common set of principles and expectations for social contracting partnerships between Government of Botswana and CSOs working in HIV-related programs and services. Lastly, it will develop formal procedures to propose to NACA to transform their current NGO/CSO granting model to a social contracting model based on the principles outlined in the Botswana Policy Guidelines for Financial Support to Non-Governmental Organisations. The selected research institution could work collaboratively with MOH and NACA contacts in Botswana and local consultants in Gaborone, as well as HP+ headquarters staff in Washington, DC. Only firms located in Botswana that are familiar with the HIV and social contracting in Botswana, are experienced working with international donors, and proficient in large-scale survey methods will be considered. The selected firm must be available to carry out the activities of the proposal between April 30th and July 30th, 2019.
