Chemonics International

Chemonics is an international development consulting firm, based in Washington, D.C. Its mission, then and now, is to promote meaningful change around the world, helping people live healthier, more productive, and more independent lives.




Chemonics International is hiring for a new USAID program that aims to support the new government, civil society organizations and independent media to advance key transition priorities. The implementation of this program requires a highly integrated and dynamic team approach to creative, coordinated, and effective program implementation in order to meet the program’s objectives.

 Duty Station: Khartoum
 Duration: 3 months
 Closing Date: 05 Nov 2020


The objective of the consulting services is to support the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning with the process of preparing to pilot-test the design of the Sudan Family Support Program (SFSP) in six locations of Sudan, testing approximately five design choices in each location, and to learn from the pilots for the most efficient and effective national rollout of the program. The consultant will then provide project management support as the program is rolled out nationally.

 Duties and responsibilities:

1. Agreeing with the Task Force helping to design the program, on the location, and the parameters for each pilot. The parameters to be tested concern alternative methods for registration, payment, communication, and alternative institutions.

4. The consultant will work to ensure that feedback methods are in place to evaluate which of the options being tested are most effective (have the lowest cost, lowest errors, and highest satisfaction of end-users).

5. The consultant will prepare a report based on the results generated at each pilot location 30 days and 60 days after the start of each pilot. Each report will report on lessons learned at the pilot for management and further scale-up of the program nationwide.

6. Provide program management support for the eventual rollout of the SFSP as it is rolled out in additional locations.

7. The Consultant will agree to a reporting schedule with the ministry.
