Invitation to Tender for The Biomedical Science Postgraduate Partnership Program (BSPP) Mid-Term Review
The Armauer Hansen Research Institute (AHRI) was founded in 1970 through the initiative of the Swedish and Norwegian Save the Children organizations seconded by the Ministry of Health. By 2016, the Institute was reestablished with the proclamation number of 376/2016, as the biomedical and clinical research arm of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Ministry of Health.
The Biomedical Science Postgraduate Partnership Program (BSPP) program is a collaboration among AHRI, AAU, and Sida whereby PhD students registered at AAU are supported in their research work at AHRI through the program’s fund.
The program is now mid-way in terms of the program timeline and thus AHRI needs external reviewers to review the program and its implementation for efficiency and to assess adherence to the proposed agreement. The mid-term review is expected to identify some weaknesses and to suggest actions to address these.
The major objective of this review is to assess the program effectiveness, economy, and efficiency, internal control, compliance, and to perform prospective analyses. The institute expects the reviewers to report on how effective the program is in achieving its goals and objectives and how economically and efficiently the institute is using the allocated resources to achieve its goal and objectives, and to assess compliance with the contract and grant agreements.
The BSPP Program Mid-term Review will primarily focus on an analysis of the program’s operational management in order to determine whether the program is achieving its intended goals. It shall assess the program’s structure, the relevance and dimensions of this structure in relation to functions and duties of the different partners (AHRI, AAU, Swedish Universities, and ISP). The internal communication mechanisms within the program shall also be assessed.
