The Asia Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions (APF) was reviewed by its joint Partners in 2014.

The independent review included both an examination of the degree to which the APF had delivered on its mandate, as well as an assessment of the ways in which APF-donor partnerships may be enhanced.

During the second half of 2018, the APF shall again be reviewed by its donors, and this evaluation shall build on the recent APF internal review of our implementation of the Strategic Plan (2015-2020).

The objective of the internal midterm review was to provide the APF secretariat with information regarding how well we are progressing in implementing the Strategic Plan. In addition, the review also considered how well the APF had implemented recommendations from the previous independent evaluation (2014).

The primary purpose of this evaluation is to help position the APF in the development of our next Strategic Plan (2020-2025) and our relationship with our funding partners.

The APF has been tasked with engaging a consultant to conduct the evaluation. We are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified candidates to undertake the evaluation.

The Terms of Reference (ToR) provide for an inclusive methodology to be used, which will engage all key stakeholders, including APF members.

All interested candidates should forward their expression of interest, noting the 'evaluator's required qualifications and experience' at Section G of the ToR, along with a copy of their CV to thuydoan-smith@asiapacificforum.net by 28 June 2018.
