WESTERN REGION COASTAL FOUNDATION

ANNEX: BACKGROUND INFORMATION

BASELINE SURVEY DATA COLLECTION FOR THE WESTERN REGION COASTAL FOUNDATION

Summary: The Western Region Coastal Foundation (WRCF) programme seeks an organization to collect baseline data on citizen perceptions and socio-economic data through a representative face to face survey of households in the six coastal districts in the Western region of Ghana. Although this request for proposal covers only one round of data collection, it is envisioned that another 1-2 rounds of data collection will be required.

  1. OBJECTIVE OF THE SURVEY

The main objective of the survey is to provide reliable baseline information on poverty, household income, employment, citizen perceptions of political stability, citizen perceptions of Oil, Gas and Power operations, local government, access to social services and inequality in the six coastal districts of Western Region of Ghana. This information will be used as benchmark against which changes and progress of achievements can be measured and evaluated, using variable indicators presented in the Project Results Framework during project implementation.

  1. SCOPE OF WORK AND EXPECTED DELIVERABLES

The organization will be expected to:

  • Participate in a four day training workshop for enumerators and team leaders held in Takoradi-Sekondi on how to administer the survey.
  • Pilot the survey within local communities in order to determine any survey questions which are unclear or sensitive and any problems with the survey logic.
  • Translate the survey instruments from English to local languages where needed to ensure consistency in interpretation.
  • Adapt the survey as needed to administer on tablets, smartphones, etc if these methods are proposed,
  • Conduct data collection in selected communities across six coastal districts, following a method of randomly selecting households to participate, and calling back with and replacing households as needed.
  • Conduct back checks and other quality assurances on data collected.
  • Provide a cleaned data file in csv…sas, or other commonly accepted data format indicating the responses to each survey questions of each household surveyed.
  • Provide monthly progress reports including a summary report of the fieldwork, any challenges encountered and any ways in which the data might be biased (refusal rates, unable to access certain communities, non-response to certain questions)
  • Complete all work within 60 calendar days of contracting.
  1. BUDGET

The organization is required to provide a budget for conducting the activities as noted in this RFP scope of work.

The WRCF has yet to make a final determination as to the sample sizes and survey lengths required for the baseline and midline surveys will take. Costings received by interested organizations will contribute into this decision. Therefore, organizations should be prepared to deliver and should prepare budgets, for the following options.

Option 1: Delivery of 680 total household surveys, 45 minutes in length, across six districts

Option 2: Delivery of 1200 total household surveys of 45 minutes in length (200 per district)

Option 3: Delivery of 1200 total household surveys of 90 minutes in length (200 per district)

Budgets should include the following:

  • All staff costs (enumerators, Team Leaders, and overheads), based on requirements noted in scope of work, including salaries or fees, per diems, any additional costs associated with staff.
  • All logistics and activity costs to ensure effective implementation of the baseline survey in the six coastal districts, including transport, fuel, accommodation, stationary, telecoms, and other consumables.

IMPORTANT: if organizations propose using electronic equipment, ie tablets or smartphones, they must state whether it this will be provided by the organization or it will need to be purchased as part of the budget.

It is helpful if costs are further broken down into the following activities:

  • Translating, adapting, and piloting research tools,
  • Training enumerators
  • Field work and data collection, including back-cleaning
  • Office based quality assurance and data cleaning.

Please indicate whether cost break-downs are the same for each option of if they differ.

  1. TIMELINES AND PROGRESS REPORTS

WRCF envisages that the baseline studies should be completed within a period of 60 calendar days from signing the contract. The WRCF currently expects the assignment to be completed by July 2016.

The selected organization will be required to submit monthly progress reports. Progress reports should be aligned to the approval implementation plan for this assignment.
