Request for Expression of Interest and Proposals
RTI International (www.rti.org) is an independent not-for-profit organization headquartered in the USA and dedicated to improving the human condition through multidisciplinary technical assistance, training and research services. We are seeking qualified Nigerian organizations to consider for the purpose of providing accounting services during the conduct of a national education survey.
The EdData 2015 program (https://www.eddataglobal.org/) provides survey expertise to help national and local governments as well as the donor community assess education status and design methods for improvement. RTI International has been tasked to work with the Government of Nigeria to administer a large household survey that will cover over 36,000 households in all 36 states of Nigeria.
RTI International requires the services of an accounting firm to provide in-country financial management services in the implementation of the NEDS 2015 activity. The provider will, through a project bank account disburse funds, for which the selected accounting firm will serve as a fiduciary agent. To support this activity, the Subcontractor will be required to disburse funds from the project account in line with agreed guidelines to:
- Cover internal project related expenses
- Directly pay per diem to recipients
- Directly to third party vendors
