The purpose of the Syria Humanitarian Monitoring Project III (SHMP III) is to establish a third-party monitoring (TPM) system to verify and provide independent monitoring of programs in Syria funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). The project will create an independent monitoring unit for BHA programs in Syria that will increase BHA’s and implementing partners’ understanding of program outputs, progress, challenges, successes, and lessons learned. Monitoring will focus on selected BHA-funded projects in the areas of Health; Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH); Agriculture; Food Assistance and Nutrition; Protection; Economic Recovery and Market Systems; and Shelter and Settlements.
SHMP III will be implemented from Amman, Jordan, and while it is primarily focused on programming in Syria, may include monitoring/activities in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey.
EnCompass is partnering with Proximity International, which provided TPM on SHMP I and II and has been operating in Syria since 2014, to support SHMP III. The project has a two-year base period with three one-year option periods.
