Integrity to deliver TPM and learning services for USAID in Somalia
Integrity is excited to announce that we have been awarded the Somalia Monitoring and Learning Project II (SMLP II) through the USAID Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). Over five years, Integrity will work closely with USAID/BHA and the agency’s Implementing Partners to deliver Third Party Monitoring (TPM) services and develop a comprehensive learning system, including an online knowledge management system, to BHA’s Somalia portfolio. Our consortium partner, Management Systems International (MSI), will support delivery of the project.
BHA is the largest funder of humanitarian assistance in Somalia. Program priorities include agriculture and food security; data collection and management for improved humanitarian coordination; economic recovery and market systems; and emergency health interventions.
Our consortium’s combined expertise in Monitoring Evaluation and Learning, Third Party Monitoring, BHA programming, and Somalia’s complex operating environment will enable us to provide continuous feedback to stakeholders on project progress, support rapid decision making, and facilitate learning. Integrity looks forward to continuing to build upon our work in Somalia through the UK FCDO’s Learning and Monitoring Program Somalia, in addition to our Evaluation of USAID/Somalia’s Alternative Basic Education for Pastoralists (ABE) Activity.
Project Director, Tamara Tamimi, explains: “Integrity is honored to be supporting the BHA’s response in Somalia which is focused on providing lifesaving assistance to vulnerable populations. Integrity and our partners MSI are applying best practice in the establishment of an independent, impartial, rigorous third-party monitoring system capable of regularly and accurately gathering, verifying, and reporting primary data on BHA funded activities in Somalia.
This includes the development of a virtual reporting platform that will provide the BHA with user-friendly and timely access to the monitoring data and analysis collected through our monitoring activities. Central to our approach is the establishment of a comprehensive learning system for the BHA and IP, where monitoring becomes a tool for adaptive management and IP capacity building.”
