The Addis Ababa City Administration has developed a comprehensive 2020/2021 annual action plan for the Future Hope of Addis Ababa Early Childhood Development Initiative. The action plan details the key programme components, and the key activities to be implemented under each strategic initiative. The RFP notes that the costing should guide the government, and its partners, in making key decisions on how best to achieve the objectives of the annual plan, including supporting budget planning, ensuring accountability, informing cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses, and to support future investment in ECD services.
The key objective of this assignment is to cost the vision of the Future Hope of Addis Ababa ECD Initiative and to determine at what cost the programme’s ambition will be attained.
The supporting objectives of this assignment are to:
- develop a costing model (tool) to cost the Future Hope of Addis Ababa ECD Initiative,
- design a costed implementation plan for the Future Hope of Addis Ababa ECD Initiative, and
- provide training and support to officials on the use of the costing model to support planning and budgeting for ECD services.
