Request for Proposal

To Conduct a Baseline Survey for the

Usafi wa Mazingira Tanzania (UMATA) Programme in Dodoma Region







The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) established the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) to provide grant support to scale up successful sanitation and hygiene approaches targeting poor people in areas of greatest need.  The WSSCC Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).


In Tanzania, the GSF’s Programme Coordinating Mechanism (PCM) is the National Sanitation and Hygiene Coordination Unit, which is mandated to oversee the efficient and effective operationalization of the National Sanitation Policy.  The WSSCC supported the GSF’s PCM in Tanzania to develop a GSF Country Programme Proposal (CPP) to achieve the objectives of increasing sanitation coverage and improving associated hygiene behaviours.  The PCM developed a programme focused in Dodoma Region and entitled Usafi wa Mazingira Tanzania (UMATA).


Plan Tanzania, an international non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rights of children and to working with the most marginalized groups, was selected through a competitive process to act as the GSF’s Executing Agency (EA) in Tanzania.  Plan has the responsibility to identify sub-grantees to implement different elements of the programme to achieve the overall programme objectives and targets.  The procurement process and contractual conditions of consultants will be in accordance with the rules and procedures laid down in the Sub Grant Management Procedures developed by Plan for the GSF.

Therefore the deadline for submission is 28th June 2013.  The assignment is expected to take 12 working weeks.
