Baseline Survey for Domestic Resource Mobilization in Kenya
Oxfam Kenya in partnership with other national and local partners is implementing a three year project on Domestic Resource Mobilisation (DRM) with financial support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.
The overall objective of the project is to support communities, civil society organisations, and community based organisations in Nairobi, Turkana and Wajir counties of Kenya, to be better placed to demand a progressive tax system, more essential quality public services and an accountable government; as well as support National and County governments to develop and implement progressive tax / fiscal legislations.
In doing this, the project seeks to contribute to a more progressive, transparent and accountable tax and expenditure regime that includes resource mobilization, allocation and spending on essential quality public services in order to tackle inequality and poverty and thus improve the lives of people, especially the most vulnerable, women, youth and marginalised groups.
Purpose and Scope: Oxfam Kenya and its partners are seeking a consultant to undertake a baseline study in the three Counties of Nairobi, Turkana and Wajir.
The baseline study is intended to provide detailed baseline data on key project indicators prior to the intervention to enable the project to measure changes taking place over the course of the project.
The consultant will be expected to employ both quantitative and qualitative data collection approaches.
The design and implementation of the baseline must also take into account and abide by agreed Oxfam’s principles.
Objective: The consultancy is to carry out a baseline study to provide Oxfam and its partners engendered baseline data against its logframe indicators especially on taxation, planning, budgeting and expenditure of resources at the national and county level.
Further, the study will provide information on the current levels and quality of citizen participation in the budget cycle, resource mobilization, allocation and expenditure and provide recommendations on how the project will influence changes in policy and practice at the various levels.
