Nutrition Resource Tracking in Nigeria Data Collection Activity
STATEMENT OF WORK
Nutrition Resource Tracking in Nigeria
Data Collection Activity
The Nigeria resource tracking exercise is a project supporting a comprehensive analysis of nutrition resources across sectors in Nigeria at the federal level, from both government and development partner funding sources, supplemented with state level analysis in up to 3 states to the extent feasible. With funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning (MB&NP) with support from Results for Development (R4D) will collect the baseline level of funding from government and development partners dedicated to nutrition, across all relevant sectors in Nigeria. Key success will be gathering comprehensive data, analyzing patterns and preparing for dissemination; and sensitization of key government staff and buy-in for multisectoral resource tracking are also important for impact beyond the project time frame.
In support of the Government of Nigeria and R4D, two consultants will provide their services to conduct the data collection for the analysis of nutrition resources across sectors in Nigeria. Under the terms of this agreement, the consultants will work with two staff assigned from MB&NP and provide the following services, under the direction of, Natasha Ledlie, the Project Leader:
- Pilot testing of the data collection instrument based on the draft versions of these questionnaires;
- Liaison with ministries, departments and agency officials, as well as development partners, as needed.
- Share responsibility for the data collection of approximately 12 MDAs and 24 development agencies during the period July – October 2020. This survey will take approximately three days per MDA on average, and one day per development partner, including planning for the data collection, meeting for data collection, and validating the data collected. Responses during the survey interviews will be recorded by the consultant and MB&NP staff in an excel spreadsheet. Co-develop and implement, with MB&NP and R4D, a system for data quality checks, validation and callbacks to be implemented during the data collection. Coordinate with MB&NP and R4D team to run data quality checks as the data are collected. Contact the MDA or development partner again to fix any missing or erroneous data.
- Assure that data can be accessed by the project team submitting the data collected for each MDA and development partner when collected; delivery of the data collected by October 30, 2020.

Project Manager. Data collected will include details on the data submitting
partner organization, details on the project, including funding and
implementing partner, nutrition focus area, target beneficiary group, target
geography, and details on budget allocation, releases, and expenditures. The
budget allocation, release and expenditure data will include additional
information on the share of the project that is considered a nutrition
Two consultants will work with two employees from the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning to conduct all data collection activities. We envision that one consultant will work with the MDAs, and the second consultant with development partners, over a period of 4 months of preparation, data collection, and validation.
- Month 1: Preparation of data collection tools; sensitization and training workshops; and piloting of tools
- Month 2-4: Data collection and validation (collecting data from one MDA, one donor, and one implementing partner a week)
The data collection will take approximately three person-days per MDA based on:
- 1 day of planning per MDA: this includes logistics of scheduling the interview, as well as any preparation, and obtaining of any data that is available in advance of the meeting.
- 1 day visit to collect the data per MDA: this includes speaking with both desk officers as well as the finance point of contact at each MDA to get data on both releases and expenditures.
- 1 day to follow up per MDA: this includes any data validation, and back and forth that may be necessary after sense checking, to make sure the correct data was inputted.
Similarly, for the development partners, we suggest one person-day per development partner based on:
- 0.25 day(s) of planning per development partner: this includes logistics of scheduling the interview, as well as any preparation, and obtaining of any data that is available in advance of the meeting.
- 0.5 day(s) visit to collect the data per development partner.
- 0.25 day(s) to follow up per development partner: this includes any data validation, and back and forth that may be necessary to get the correct data inputted
