    Grantee Management Systems Capacity Building Consultants

    Nigeria Health Workforce Management (HWM) Activity

    Grantee Management Systems Capacity Building Consultants (2)


    BG Laurel International Nigeria LTE/GTE is a fully owned subsidiary of Banyan Global, Inc, a woman-owned small business and international development consulting firm committed to improving livelihoods through market approaches for a broad and lasting impact. The firm is headquartered in Washington, DC and has program operations and activities in over fifteen countries around the world. Banyan Global operates within six practice areas: gender, youth, finance and investment, enterprise development, health, and evaluation and learning.

    Banyan Global is the prime recipient of the Nigeria Health Workforce Management (HWM) Activity in Nigeria. The HWM Activity is a five-year task order to support the establishment of a cost-effective, well-trained, and motivated health workforce, particularly in targeted rural and remote areas of Bauchi, Ebonyi, Kebbi, and Sokoto States and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). By its conclusion, HWM is expected to increase the production of new health workers competent to respond to current and future population health needs in these locations by 10,000; improve the distribution and skill mix of front-line workers to meet specific local demands; and strengthen the capacity of pre-service institutions to adopt and apply innovative education approaches. Targeted interventions will contribute to 1) improved management of maternal, child, and newborn health conditions and 2) increased responsiveness to community health needs. USAID will support the Government of Nigeria’s (GON’s) commitment to plan, recruit, train, manage, and retain its primary health care (PHC) workforce. This activity will contribute to the achievement of USAID/Nigeria’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) Development Objective 2 “a healthier, more educated population in targeted states” and Intermediate Result (IR) 2.1 “Utilization of quality health services in targeted areas and population groups increased.”

    The Grantee Management Systems Capacity Building –consultants will be based in Kaduna and Sokoto States and report to the HWM Governance and Management Lead. The consultants will each provide technical support to one of two HWM Grantees to improve the management systems following the results of an HWM baseline assessment.

    The consultants are expected to provide the technical support through coaching of grantee organization to improve performance. The consultants will help the grantees review their proposed improvement plan in order to ensure that their decisions increase effectiveness and efficiency. For the coaching to be successful, the consultants will need to develop and share a coaching plan with the HWM Governance and Management Lead for approval before implementation.

Ultimately, HWM expects that the technical support will lead to significant improvements in the grantee management systems and overall capacity to respond to current and future programmatic needs.
