RFP for Start-Up Cash Grant in Adamawa

 

Overview :

The crisis in north-east Nigeria remains one of the most severe in the world, in its ninth year. In the three worst-affected states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe, 1.7 million persons are internally displaced and human rights violations continue to be reported daily.

Poverty levels in Nigeria have been high for successive decades after the oil boom of the 1970s. By 2015, 0ver 64 percent of the population lived below the poverty line. Nigeria’s Human Development index in 2015 was 0.514 placing it at 152 out of 1883 countries ranked in that year. Geographical disparities in the country are demonstrated by differences in social development indicators among the 36 states with North East states consistently bringing up the rear. Poverty and hunger have remained high in rural areas, remote communities and among female-headed households.

The average income per household and month in 2016 stood at US$ 60, which translates into an average income of $0.4 per day per person. This figure, which is significantly below the officially defined poverty line of US$ 1.5 per day, explains why 46 percent of households borrow money to buy food. It also explains the looming livelihoods and food crisis. moreover, income from skilled labour dropped from 21 percent before the crisis to under 5 percent today. Without immediate and significant support to economic revitalisation, this situation will be extremely difficult to reverse. In order to restore the livelihoods of skilled beneficiaries in Adamawa State UNDP plans to carry out start up cash grants activity.

A.Approach

The organization will plan and manage the monitoring activities of vocational skill training of 200 beneficiaries and provision of the cash grants to those who meet the criteria out of the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries are from Loko community in Song LGA and Maiha community in Maiha LGA in Adamawa State. The training course is for three (3) monthswhich is placed in Yola Vocational LGA Yola for Loko beneficiaries and Mubi Vocational Training Centre LGA Mubi for Maiha beneficiaries.

During training sessions monitoring, the organization will provide support to the beneficiaries in :

  • Preparation of business plan ;
  • Orient beneficiaries on financial management of business ;
  • Orient beneficiaries on record keeping of business.

On graduation of the course; out of total 200 beneficiaries under vocational training, those who meet the criteria mentioned below will be selected for start-up cash grants for business purpose. The total amount of the grant is 30,000,000 Naira (83,333.33 US$) and the allocation of the amount among the 1st and the 2nd tranche is up to the proposal by the organization. The amount is to be evenly divided among the qualified beneficiaries. If all the 200 beneficiaries should meet the criteria, the amount per beneficiary will be 150,000 Naira. The percentage of the qualified beneficiaries should not be smaller than 80% of the beneficiaries under vocational training. In case the percentage does not reach the figure, a consultation should be done with UNDP. The criteria for the beneficiaries are:

  • Graduated the course with minimum attendance of 70 % and above ;
  • Graduated the course clearing the minimum requirement of performance in theory and practical of 70% and above ;
  • Graduated the course having well developed business plan as per acquired training skill.

The organization should prepare a list of beneficiaries who meet above mentioned criteria. Then, the beneficiaries who do not have bank account should be supported to have ones. After getting the bank accounts of all beneficiaries, the organization will disburse the 1st tranche to selected beneficiaries. The 1st tranche spending will be monitored by the organization. The organization will provide a consolidated report about spending of each beneficiary.

The organization will prepare a final list of beneficiaries who spent 1st tranche properly as per business plan. The organization will request for the release of 2nd tranche for beneficiaries who followed the business plan. The organization will disburse the 2nd tranche and monitor the spending of each beneficiary. The organization will submit a detailed report on startup grant on completion of 2nd tranche monitoring.

As the beneficiaries are from Loko community in Song LGA and Maiha community in Maiha LGA in Adamawa State, the organization should put sufficient measures to track and records all beneficiaries. The monitoring methodologies to check the ongoing vocational skill trainings and how to monitor the business plan of each beneficiary should be proposed in the technical proposal. The organization should propose a template of the business plan and the template for monitoring of the 1st and 2nd tranches.
