Scope of work

Initial Planning

Document Review: After reviewing the attached documents listed in section 13, information gaps will be determined, and scope of other data collection methods refined accordingly.

Quantitative

Household Survey: The consultant will develop household survey questionnaires based on the indicators stated in the CDP project documents. Equally important, the questionnaire will be finalized by the evaluation team in consultation with the CDP team from research framework design including matrix framework development, questionnaire development, up to finalize it after pre-test questionnaire. (Pre-test of questionnaires should be done twice to revise and redesign questions in order to prevent induction-questions and to find irrelevant questions.) Moreover, CDP team would help to make an appointment with household sample that randomly will be selected by the consultant(s) from the list of project beneficiaries.

        The calculation of sample size is based on random sampling from those households in the CDP target villages. The population of project beneficiaries is at large of 1,681 families in the 11 target villages; consequently, 235 families are randomly selected for interview. Based on the mathematic of probability prove that the size of the population is irrelevant unless the size of the sample exceeds a few percent of the total population that we are examining for those population unknown or at large. In connection to this, the proposed sample size is 254 households out of 1,681 families, which is corresponding to 8% of total population, i.e. it is reasoning to conclude the representative.
