Active Bid Opportunities

RFP for Systems Change Nigeria

Heifer International seeks to promote self-sufficiency and economic sustainability by providing farm animals, training in sustainable agricultural practices, and support for small business creation. The "Passing on the Gift® (PoG)" approach is central to Heifer’s strategy, as it fosters solidarity and collaboration among beneficiary families. Heifer currently uses multipliers to estimate households that have benefited indirectly from Heifer's programs, based on the "Original Gift (OG)" or "Direct" change and Passing on the Gift models.

In recent years, Heifer International has undergone changes in its approach to program design and implementation, adopting a systems approach in some regions, including in Africa. Systemic programming enables Heifer to contribute to farmers, cooperatives, and government and private sector actors in achieving more effective program implementation, better outcomes, and potentially broader impact. Due to these changes, the organization has revised its methodology for estimating indirect multipliers, seeking to develop an approach more compatible with systems programming.

The contracting modality is through an open call. Those interested can send their proposal (technical and cost) and resumes of the project lead, any confirmed key team members, and a sample CV of an enumerator who may be joining the team to the following email: Proposals will be evaluated on a rolling basis. The technical and financial proposals should be submitted by November 22, 2023 to Heifer. Please quote "Systems Change Nigeria" in the subject. Heifer retains the right to terminate this RFP or modify the requirements upon notification to the Offerors.
