Victoria Legal Aid
Deadline: 9am AEST, Monday 24th June 2019

Victoria Legal Aid are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified consultant(s) to develop and oversee the monitoring and evaluation framework for the Independent Family Advocacy and Support service (IFAS) pilot project.

IFAS is a three-year pilot service that provides representational advocacy services to families involved in the child protection system who have not been to court. The non-legal service assists people to understand and enact their rights, access support and advocacy services, develop their self-advocacy skills and help them work with child protection services, including providing direct, representational advocacy.

We are looking to work with the consultant(s) to embed M&E as an integral, ongoing part of planning and management of this pilot. The consultant(s) will undertake a mid-term review and a final evaluation to critically and credibly assess the efficiency, effectiveness and appropriateness of the intervention. In June 2018, previous evaluation consultants co-developed a program logic, M&E framework and related data collection tools with the IFAS team and stakeholders. The consultant(s) will be expected to utilise and draw on these documents for the mid-term and final evaluations.

Candidates must be available to start by August 2019.

The budget allocated for this piece of work is up to $60,000 excluding GST.

Submissions (and any enquiries) should be sent to Kira Lee Senior Evaluation Advisor, Victoria Legal Aid, by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. marked “VLA IFAS Evaluation EOI”

Australian Red Cross seeks Expressions of Interest to conduct an independent evaluation of our Drought Program. The evaluation is intended to help Red Cross Emergency Services better understand how we can support communities impacted by slow-onset disasters such as drought.

The evaluation will consider what works in our current recovery program, and what could be improved on, to strengthen the evidence base for future Red Cross work in communities impacted by a changing climate.

The project:

Evaluate a two-year drought program focused on specific locations in four states. The objectives of the evaluation are to:

  1. Assess the relevance, appropriateness and effectiveness of Red Cross’s recovery work to communities affected by the current drought
  2. Assess progress towards outcomes as outlined in the Theory of Change
  3. Capture learning and provide recommendations to improve the program, and future recovery programs that focus on slow-onset disasters
  4. Meet our contractual obligations to our funder, the BHP Foundation.

About you:

You will have demonstrated experience conducting program evaluations, preferably in disaster-affected communities. You will have demonstrated experience with MEL frameworks and approaches including Theory of Change and participatory approaches. You will have demonstrated knowledge and experience of disaster resilience and recovery work, and of working with remote/regional communities. You will have an understanding and awareness of factors affecting the operation of Not for Profit Organisations, and the use of volunteers in service provision.

The Evaluation Brief contains the evaluation scope and selection criteria, which must be addressed.
