About Afghanistan SUPPORT-II Project
SUPPORT directly assists USAID/Afghanistan Program and Projects Development Office (PPDO) with information management services and provides the PPDO and USAID/Afghanistan with a number of key services, including information management and reporting products and performance monitoring plans and related activities. SUPPORT is seeking well qualified Afghan candidates for a newly established field monitoring unit which will provide periodic reviews of specific activities on behalf of USAID/Afghanistan.
The main purpose of the mid-term performance evaluation of the Engineering Support Program (ESP) is to determine the degree to which the Tetra Tech has been effective in implementing the ESP, to evaluate how effective Tetra Tech has been in building the capacity of Afghan government infrastructure partners or other relevant actors, and to identify recommendations, problems, best practices, lessons learned, and constraints to achieving results under the ESP contract and job order operational structure. The results of the evaluation may be used to inform USAID’s future design of an engineering and technical support activity.
