Consultancy Services for Preparation of Expanded Supervision Reports

(XSRs)

Introduction :

The Financial Sector Development Department (PIFD) of the African Development Bank (AFDB or the Bank) wishes to recruit Financial Analysts as consultants to assist in the preparation of Expanded Supervision reports (XSR) within financial sector.

The XSR is a standard one-time supervision report undertaken once a project reaches early operating maturity, defined in this case as achieving at least 30 months following final disbursement to the beneficiary or 18 month after the last disbursement of LOC funds to the last sub-project. It is an indirect self-evaluation tool used to measure the performance of a project against its specific stated project objectives at approval on the basis of four evaluation dimensions to help draw lessons in improving future Bank operations. The preparation of the XSR is currently under the responsibility of the Portfolio Coordinator (PIFD0). For the purpose of achieving an unbiased and objective assessment, an external consultant is usually recruited to carry out the evaluation process.

The assignment :

The objective of the XSR is to assess the implementation experience and evaluate the result chain from inputs, outputs, outcomes and impacts while drawing lessons for consideration in future interventions.

The assignment will cover the followings areas :

  • Implementation arrangements for the Project
  • Operational and financial performance of the project company
  • Development impact assessment
  • E &S Compliance and implementation of the ESMS
  • Bank’s investment profitability
  • Bank’s work quality
  • Bank’s additionally ( role and contribution) and
  • Issues and lessons learned ( for improving future interventions)

Scope of the evaluation :

The XSR has two main parts: (i) a summary of the Project Supervision Report (PSR); and (ii) the self –Evaluation Findings. The PSR Section must present sufficient basic information on the project, its implementation and operating performance to facilitate evolution .It should also include the “without Project” counterfactual i.e. , what would have happened if the Bank did not participate in the project. The evaluation will be based on the framework defined in the December 2011 “Revised Guidelines for the preparation of the Expanded Supervision Report and the Expanded Supervision Report Review Notes” (the Guidelines) of which a copy will be made available to the consultant.

The evaluation will cover the following four performance dimensions :

  • Development outcome : This criterion assesses the impact of the project (direct / indirect) on the development of host country or region, and implicitly the extent to which the project has contributed to fulfilling the Bank’ mandate of economic development and poverty alleviation in regional member countries. It is a synthesis of the ratings of four sub-missions(i) Business Success-financial performance and fulfillment of project objectives; (ii) Economic sustainability;(iii) Environmental and social Performance and (iv) Private Sector Development. The consultant will provide a rating for each of the four submissions and an overall development outcome rating. The development outcome rating is on a six-point scale while the ratings of the four submissions of the development outcome dimension are on a four-point scale.
  • Bank’s Investment Profitability :

For the Bank to be sustainable, the investments it makes must be profitable. This dimension assesses the extent to which the bank has realized or expects to realize over the remaining life of the project the income that was expected during appraisal.

  • Bank’s Work Quality : This criterion assesses the operational performance of the Bank with respect to how well the Bank goes about its operations prior to loan commitment and post commitment responsibilities. It reflects the contribution of the bank towards achievement of project outcomes, but this rating is independent of the rating of development outcome and the

Bank’s investment outcome. The rating for the Banks ‘work quality is based on the ratings of the two sub-dimensions: (i) screening, appraisal, and structuring, which relates to the Bank’s performance in its front end work (i.e. quality at entry); and (ii) monitoring, supervision and administration which refers to how well the Bank is executing its monitoring and supervision functions.

  • Bank’s additionally : This assesses the Bank’s role and contribution especially focusing on what the Bank financing brings to the Project other and above other commercial financiers.

The consultant will pay particular attention to the pending issues that have been identified after an initial review of available project documentation. Evaluation questions/ issues to be covered are detailed in Annex1.

The consultant shall use the following six value rating system to assess actual development outcome performance of the project.

  • Highly Successful (HS) ;
  • Successful ;
  • Mostly Successful (MS) ;
  • Mostly Unsuccessful (MU) ;
  • Unsuccessful (U) and
  • Highly Unsuccessful (HU).

The performance of the project with respect to the evaluation of the sub-dimensions of development outcome and the other three dimensions ( AFDB’s Investment Outcome, Work Quality and (Additionality ) will be rated on the following four point rating scale on the basis of relevant indicators and benchmarks the definitions of which are specific to the indicator and type of project :

  • Highly Successful (S+) ;
  • Satisfactory ( S) ;
  • Unsatisfactory ( U) and ;
  • Highly Unsatisfactory ( U-).

Issues relevant to the Bank and lessons learnt to improve future Bank’s operations shall be identified by the consultant. To assess how the Bank’s operations have evolved, lessons gained from previous evaluation assessments of other projects will also be reviewed. Lessons should be concise, prescriptive, transparent and operationally guided.

More specifically, the consultant is expected to analyze the information collected from project documents, discussions with project stakeholders and a field mission to the project company to :

  • Determine the performance of AFDB and the project company with respect to achieving overall objectives set at project design ;
  • Evaluate the performance of the Bank and project company in the establishment of the project and in realization of contractual obligations by using the rating as described in the guidelines ;
  • Evaluate the Achievements in qualitative and quantitative terms compared to the objectives of the evaluation report and to determine the impact of the project;
  • Evaluate the sustainability of economic, Institutional and social impacts ( particularly on omen) of the project and ;
  • Determine the operational and financial performance of the project company as well during the implementation compared to the forecasts indicated at appraisal.
