Тендер про обрання підрядника для проведення оцінки стратегії НАМ / Tender announcement: contractor to implement IAB Strategy Evaluation

 

Повний текст документу «Terms of Reference (ToR) for Strategy Evaluation of Independent Association of Broadcasters», який представлений нижче та всі деталі щодо участі у тендері знаходяться тут.

 

Background Information and Rationale

Independent Association of Broadcasters (IAB, www.nam.org.ua) is the largest professional organization which simultaneously represents the interests of both TV and radio companies. IAB’s work has two focuses: it’s a membership organization, which supports its members and a non-profit organization, which promotes freedom of speech in general.

IAB strategy for 2014-2018 is ending in December 2018 and the current evaluation aims to find out to what extent IAB programmes have reached their objectives and delivered expected results as an accountability both towards our donors, as well as our beneficiaries and stakeholders.

This evaluation is also an important tool for future planning. IAB will develop a new strategy for 2019-2021 and aims to incorporate findings from this evaluation on what programmes have been successful and had the biggest positive impact. This study was initiated by IAB management internally and should be executed by an independent evaluator under the Terms of Reference elaborated and approved by inFocus (www.impactinfocus.com). 

The IAB strategic programmes, that this strategy evaluation should look at are:

•             Deregulation of TV and radio market in Ukraine

•             Strengthening regional media sustainability

•             Education of IAB members

•             Social Impact

•             Project East

•             IAB Capacity Development.
