Contract Ref: 7753
Title: Jobs Measurement and Implementation Support (JMIS) Programme in DFID
 
Description
This support programme forms part of the existing Strategic Partnership for Productive Jobs Programme and will be primarily responsible for delivering Output 4: DFID teams better able to access information and expertise on jobs. The JMIS team will facilitate DFID’s corporate and programmatic needs on this agenda in support of the objectives of DFID’s Growth and Resilience Department (GRD) and the Economic Development Directorate under which it sits. The programme is expected to work closely with GRD’s Enhancing Diagnostics programme. The ED programme seeks to improve DFID analysis of growth and employment generation problems and possible solutions in DFID focus countries. This support programme will aim to deliver; 1. WorkStream 1: Data and Evidence a. DFID is systematically collecting wider jobs and economic transformation data in each of its countries of engagement and has a country-specific narrative of how its programming is supporting this macro picture. b. Latest evidence of programme efficiency and effectiveness for delivering more and better jobs updated and is informing programme design, measurement methodologies, communications and coordination. c. Quality and amount of global data on jobs improved through more frequent labour force, household and firm-level surveys and it is in wide use by governments and development partners 2. Work Stream 2: Measuring and communicating jobs impacts in DFID a. All relevant DFID programmes have defensible estimates of jobs impact and these are aggregated into an overall assessment of the organisation’s jobs result for economic development. b. Aggregate jobs impact of DFID spending effectively communicated together with the more sophisticated picture of contribution to higher productivity and economic transformation. Processes are put in place to ensure these can be easily updated on a periodic basis 3. Work Stream 3: Technical Advice and Demand Driven Support a. DFID programmes are applying best fit in the design and implementation of skills, market development and other jobs-related programmes and are thus maximizing their impact on the number and quality of jobs. b. Emerging challenges and issues in jobs problems within DFID programmes and policy experience are effectively addressed. c. Jobs links between DFID’s work on diagnostics, industrial policy, trade, migration, youth and women’s economic empowerment, working conditions and labour market policies effectively established and sustained. d. Guidance that specifically addresses gender, FCAS, inclusion and informality aspects of jobs problems improves DFID targeting and inclusiveness of jobs related programming. 4. Workstream 4: Coordination, Knowledge Management and Learning a. International development community adopts a consistent set of methodologies for measuring jobs impact fit to intervention type and country context, subject to periodic quality assurance, part of corporate reporting systems and it is effectively and accurately communicated. b. Knowledge management system to ensure effective archiving and dissemination of jobs related information and lessons learnt is operational and providing an ongoing service beyond the life of JMIS. c. Communication of jobs impacts is consistent and standardised across all UK ODA expenditure.
