General Information Country: LesothoCity/Locality: MaseruPublication Date: Nov 11, 2022Agency: Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC)Buyer: Original Language: English Contact Information Address: Interim Procurement Agent 5th Floor, Post Office Building, Kingsway Road Maseru LesothoE-mail: Click here Original Text NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR INFORMATION Maseru, Lesotho November 10, 2022 RE - Procurement 6: Health Communications Services Provision (HCSP) Contract The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) awards eligible countries with fixed-amount, fixed-term (five year) grants (“compacts”) for a defined set of projects aimed at reducing poverty through economic growth (the Program). Country ownership of compacts and programs is a core part of MCC’s model and influences a great deal of MCC’s work. MCC supports country ownership through the establishment of a local team of professionals for each compact, typically called a “Millennium Challenge Account” or “MCA”, charged with compact implementation. The MCA is overseen locally by a Board of Directors. The Millennium Challenge Account (MCA), then, is the entity established by the compact recipient’s Government to act as the accountable entity to implement the Program, with the authority to bind the Government of Lesotho (GoL) with regard to all Program activities. The MCC and the GoL signed the US$ 300 million multi-sectoral Lesotho Health and Horticulture Compact (the Compact) in March, 2022. Within this package of support to the GoL, the Compact will provide approximately US$75 million to support systems strengthening within the health sector through the Health System Strengthening (HSS) Project. The overall objective of this HSS Project is to improve health outcomes through strengthening Lesotho’s primary health care (PHC) system. It is anticipated that this support will assist the GOL to: • Provide high quality primary health care (PHC) services, including clinical services and those targeted at survivors of gender-based violence (GBV); and • Improve management and support services to deliver PHC primarily at the district level. To implement the HSS Project, the MCA in Lesotho intends to procure the services of a number of Consulting Firms – “Consultants” to provide the necessary technical services and support to the MOH and other partners/stakeholders. Prior to the formalizing of the procurement process, the MCA in Lesotho has published a Request for Information (RFI) to get feedback from potential Consultants on certain key aspects of the terms of reference. This Scope of Work describes the services of a communications firm that will be contracted to support Lesotho’s Ministry of Health (MOH) to develop and produce specific communication and health promotion products. The MOH’s Health Education Unit will coordinate with all units at the MOH to develop a prioritized list of the technical content/messages to be conveyed and indicate the communication medium. The communications firm will use their expertise to design, test and produce high quality communication products to change or promote health behaviors. This Consultant will provide communications support for both internal facing and outward facing Ministry of Health Primary Health Care communication needs, especially those in support the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Health and Horticulture Compact. Examples of communication materials include social media posts or banners, revised/new pamphlets, billboards, radio public service announcements, short videos, forms, record books, community dialogue guides, etc. MCA in Lesotho now invites responses to the RFI from legally constituted Consultants.
