LISA will be supporting the USAID Democratic Governance, Peace, and Security (DGPS) Office, which supports Kenya’s drive towards entrenchment of democracy, inclusive and effective governance, peace, and security. The DGPS programming is through two mechanisms, namely the Kenya Inclusive Governance, Accountability, Performance, and Participation (K-IGAPP) and the Local Development Organization (LDO) Initiative.

    Roles and Responsibilities

  • Conduct comprehensive capacity assessments related to the MEL capacity of all 10 DGPS partner organizations.

  • Develop tailored training and support materials to address MEL capacity gaps, including issues such as learning agendas,
    data quality, and adaptive management.

  • Conduct interviews and surveys with DGPS partners in addition to a desk review of MEL documentation.

  • Deliver presentations to DGPS and partners on progress.

  • Participate in quarterly MEL meetings, as well as debriefs with the Mission and LISA staff.

  • Other activities as agreed upon with LISA staff.

    Required Skills

  • Master’s degree or doctoral degree in international development, social science, or related fields from a recognized university.

  • Experience conducting organizational capacity assessments and developing capacity building plans.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of monitoring and evaluation topics, including data collection, learning agendas, data quality, analysis, and reporting.

  • Familiarity with USAID requirements and compliance, including ADS 201.

  • Experience working on or implementing programs in Kenya, preferably related to democracy and governance.

  • Ability to diplomatically communicate and work effectively with a wide range of USAID implementing partners and stakeholders.
