SEforALL is seeking consultancy services for the evaluation of its Results Based Finance program initiative Universal Energy Facility. The Universal Energy Facility (UEF) is a multi-donor RBF facility established to support the electrification of households, businesses, public institutions, and other potential electricity consumers in sub-Saharan Africa that do not have reliable access to modern electricity services. The UEF provides incentive payments (i.e., grants) on a ‘results-based’ approach to selected eligible organizations that develop and operate systems and provide verified electricity connections.

The purpose of the evaluation of the first Wave of the UEF programme is to evaluate the first year of operation of the UEF in order to generate learnings and create an internal and external facing learning document. This will be a retrospective assessment looking back from the establishment of the facility in October 2020 to present day to understand of what’s worked well, what’s been more challenging, and outlining opportunities for improvement based on learnings generated throughout the evaluation. Learnings are expected to be complemented by key recommendations for improvement prior to substantial scale up.

All bids are to be submitted to by 21st September 2021 by 23:59 PM Central European Summer Time (CEST). To aid the RFP process, the RBF team at SEforALL will be holding a pre-bid call on the 15th of September, 2021 at 13:00 CET. Please register at the following link for this call:
