The evaluators will be external, have degree of independence of the evaluators from the policy, operations and management function of the Ujamaa, its implementers and its beneficiaries. The evaluators will be able to openly and honestly address possible conflicts of interest.

Criteria - The following criteria are taken into account when selecting consultants: evaluation and methodology skills, specialist know-how, honesty, communication skills, professional approach, intercultural and gender competence and costs. In order to ensure independency, it is ascertained that the team members were not previously involved in planning or carrying out the development measure being evaluated and that no other conflicts of interests exist. If there are limitations as regards independence, these must be declared upfront and documented. As far as possible, consultant teams should consist of both qualified women and men. A written contract will be concluded and signed with the successful consultant(s) covering the agreed services to be rendered.
