EnCompass is thrilled to announce that the USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) has awarded our team the $14 million Syria Humanitarian Monitoring Project (SHMP) III. We are excited to work with BHA to expand its monitoring, evaluation, and learning efforts through the third iteration of this important project. EnCompass will partner with Proximity International, which provided third-party monitoring (TPM) support on SHMP I and II.
SHMP III will establish an independent TPM system to verify and provide independent monitoring of BHA programs in Syria that will increase both the Bureau’s and its implementing partners’ understanding of outputs, progress, challenges, and successes. The system will also generate learning for more effective future programming. SHMP III will be implemented from Amman, Jordan, and while it is focused primarily on programming in Syria, may include monitoring/activities in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey.
Carrie Conway, Vice President of EnCompass’ Technical Assistance and Evaluation Practice noted, “With the SHMP III contract, EnCompass begins a transformative chapter of TPM work, collaborating closely with USAID BHA and in partnership with Proximity International. This contract offers EnCompass an additional opportunity to enhance the impact of development aid in humanitarian contexts, utilizing trauma-informed, locally led, and contextually tailored approaches.”
