Consultancy Positions


Papua New Guinea Earthquake Response Evaluation

March – April 2019


Overview of Consultancy

CARE Australia is seeking a consultant to fill the role of team leader to lead an independent evaluation to assess whether the humanitarian response conducted by CARE and Caritas to the February 2018 earthquake in the Papua New Guinea Highlands region was effective, efficient and relevant.

Key Outputs

The Team Leader has overall responsibility for the outputs (see TOR for details):

  • An Evaluation Plan
  • A verbal debrief and verification of preliminary findings
  • Draft Evaluation Report
  • Final Evaluation Report, which will incorporate any agreed changes or amendments as requested by the relevant representatives of CARE, Caritas/CAN DO, the AHP Support Unit, MFAT and DFAT.

Consultant Expenses

The budget available for this consultancy is estimated on the basis of up to 32 days of input.

CARE will arrange all in-country logistics and accommodation required for the evaluation. CARE is happy to arrange international flights or reimburse costs of travel if preferred – as flights to/from PNG can be very expensive, we would appreciate if the itinerary is shared with the Country Office prior to making a final booking. CARE can also provide advice regarding the itinerary including what transport and accommodation is required in PNG including safety and security considerations.


To express your interest for this consultancy, please send the following documents to

  • Cover letter outlining suitability to assignment (2 page)
  • Current CV
  • Executive Summary of previous evaluation work
  • Proposed draft evaluation plan (2-4 pages)
  • Daily consultancy fee including living expenses.

Deadline: 22 February 2019

To apply, please review the application process in the Terms of Reference(TOR).

The TOR for this evaluation details a summary of the earthquake response activities, key evaluation questions, scope of the evaluation, proposed evaluation timeline and key outputs.
