Position: RFP: Midterm Program Evaluation for FIT Program
Closing Date: March 5, 2021
About FIT and the ICN
The Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT) is a 5-year program funded by Global Affairs Canada aiming to support between 50 to 70 Canadian small and medium-sized organizations (SMOs) testing innovative solutions to advance gender equality and empower women and girls in the Global South. The program is designed to assist organizations in gathering evidence at the testing phase to assess the innovation’s potential to scale and replicability for the wider community.
FIT is a program of the Inter-Council Network of Provincial and Regional Councils (ICN) managed by the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation and funded by Global Affairs Canada. The ICN is a coalition of the eight Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation. These independent member-based Councils are committed to global social justice and social change and represent more than 350 diverse civil society organizations from across Canada.
Midterm Evaluation Purpose and Scope
The purpose of the midterm evaluation is to provide an independent assessment of the FIT program so that FIT can make program improvements. The evaluation will cover a period of 24- 27 months, from approximately December 2018 to March 2021, and will focus on program and resource development as well as implementation of Intakes 1 and 2. The evaluation will assess the relevance of the fund, its effectiveness as well as the program’s development, implementation, performance, and its capacity to achieve the expected outcomes. The findings and recommendations in the Midterm Evaluation Report will be used to inform the program. The findings may also be used by other key stakeholders of the FIT program such as MCIC, the ICN and Global Affairs Canada.
