MSH in Kenya seeks to recruit Consultant for a duration of two (2) weeks under the Primary Health Care (PHC) Costing Project.   With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, MSH is developing a new tool and methodology for costing PHC services at the facility/community level and for grouping these costs into district and higher level PHC costs.   The tool will be used by the Kenya Ministry of Health, the Division of Primary Health Care to develop an investment case and guide evidence-based planning and resource-mobilization for county-specific UHC scale-up plans in six counties (Nyeri, Mukueni, Kajiado, Isolo, Kisumu, and Kilifi). The tool will be open-source and a public good so counties will be able to access it easily and can view and change all elements of the tool as needed.   The tool will be used to develop a model for a representative primary hospital, a health center, a dispensary and a community in each county. Each model will contain the actual services and costs for the most recently-completed fiscal year, which will serve as the baseline costs, and the services and costs for needs-based scaling up targets projected over 5 years. The normative list of services will be based on the KEPH; the target service utilization figures will be based on catchment populations and disease incidence rates and expected utilization rates; and the normative costs will be based on standard treatment protocols.

To support the assignment, the USAID Rwanda Health Systems Strengthening (RHSS) Project is seeking qualified professional(s) to carry out the functional analysis of the HIGE. The consultant(s) will work closely with the RHSS Project team throughout the entire assignment. RHIC has approached the RHSS Project and requested technical assistance to carry out a functional analysis (FA) of the Rwanda HI environment and governance functions. The main objectives of the FA are to: - Analyze how critical and essential functions of a well-governed HI national environment are currently defined, understood, assigned, and covered by the various key institutional players/actors in Rwanda;  - Identify gaps in essential functions; and  - Provide decision-makers with policy options and recommendations towards better governance of the HI ecosystem. The assignment will involve developing a conceptual framework that clearly describes the ideal situation for a well-governed HI environment. The framework, coupled with a thorough situation analysis, will define the current HI environment in Rwanda in a structured way. The formal setting: Clearly understand the roles and functions of concerned actors as formally defined and assigned (set up) by laws, regulations, Ministerial orders, etc. Clearly determine how key roles and functions are defined and assigned. This is to identify gaps in the formal settings definitions and attributions compared to the referenced conceptual framework retained for the FA. Compliance with the formal setting: Assess whether formally defined and assigned roles and functions are actually assumed and exercised by the concerned actors or not; if they are, measure the extent to which they are understood and/or applied; if not applied, identify why and which institution is presumed to assume and exercise the given role and function. This is to understand actors’ degree of understanding and compliance with formal settings in place. CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK DESIGN AND FA IMPLEMENTATION APPROACH  The assignment will be performed in two main phases/steps: - Elaboration of the conceptual framework and the situational analysis: The first part of the assignment will entail consultant(s) to undertake a thorough and extensive desk review of existing HI laws, policies, regulations and existing frameworks (from the literature) to identify and adapt or develop a conceptual framework that incorporates the vision and broader functions of a well governed HI environment and how the different players relate to each other. The conceptual framework will guide the situation analysis and gaps identifications of the current HI environment. Additionally, the consultant(s) will consult key informants through interviews and focus group meetings to obtain their perspectives on the current situation, on what a well-functioning HI environment entails and the best way forward. - Analysis of gaps and formulation of policy options and recommendations: This part of the assignment will consist in identifying the gaps in the governance of the current HI environment and formulating policy options and recommendations to address them. Two deliverables will be prepared, one at the end of each step: - Report - part one: conceptual framework, situational analysis of the HI environment in Rwanda;  - Report - part two: gaps analysis and formulation of policy options and recommendations.  Both reports will be subject to reviews for inputs and validation. The design and implementation of the study will be done in close consultation with RHIC and MOH. A steering committee of the FA will be set-up to guide and oversee its design and implementation. The consultant(s) will advise on the composition and establishment of the committee and contribute to the elaboration of the TORs for the committee.

The Rwandan Ministry of Health has established a micro-finance scheme or ‘Ikimina’ for the health workforce called the Health Sector Staff Mutual Assistance Group (HSS-MAG).  This is a voluntary savings and loan program introduced as a staff retention measure by providing members with access to affordable credit.  By April 2018 over 11,000 people (nearly 70% of eligible staff) had joined the group.  Given the large number of transactions to be managed (monthly contributions from each member and a growing portfolio of loans to process and recover), the HSS-MAG can no longer manage this scheme using paper system. The HSS-MAG needs a strong technology platform to support key functions including:  membership management (who has contributed how much, what is each person’s monthly contribution), loan management (what loans are outstanding to whom, who are their guarantors), accounting and portfolio and dividend management.  Members should be able to check their savings investments and loan balances on line and apply for loans on-line or using mobile phones.   In addition, the HSS-MAG management should be able to check the status of the investment and saving pool and loan portfolio by type of loan at any time – and prepare a wide range of reports for the Board of Directors. Management Sciences for Health, Inc (MSH) is soliciting bids for a microfinance information system on behalf of the HSS-MAG, a not-for-profit savings and loan cooperative managed by staff from the health sector. At the current time the HSS-MAG has nearly 12,000 members working in about 700 health institutions. Statement of Work (SOW) The selected bidder will provide the following services to the HSS-MAG in order to adapt and implement a microfinance information management system for this savings and loan scheme.   The selected contractor shall provide the following services: - Software customization/adaptation of system to MAG requirements described in the TOR below - Configuration and testing of software on agreed upon hosting platform - Data conversion and import of existing member data into system - Preparation of user guides for each type of user - Training of system administrators and MAG officers - Provision of system maintenance and support as long as the system is used (annual support) - Hosting of system on an agreed upon hosting platform   The system should have a robust application program interface (API) to enable interoperability with other information systems (e.g.IPPIS payroll) and should enable the system administrator to configure and customize most system settings without vendor support. The system should also have schedule of upgrade and maintenance releases that can be implemented easily.   In order to be considered, bidders are required to have a permanent local representative based in Rwanda to provide on-going support for the system.  This could be through a third-party if the company is not based in Rwanda. Terms of Reference (TOR)1.  Introduction and system overview The HSS-MAG, established in October 2017 by Health Sector staff from many health institutions has grown to over 12,000 members who have contributed over 300 million Rwandan Francs by July 2018.  Contributions are deducted at source from payroll contributions that represent a variable percentage of each employee’s base salary. The funds are all pooled in a single bank account, from which investments are made or a variety of loan products are offered to members in order to earn interest (see attached HSS-MAG documentation for more information about the scheme).   The system must support different user roles and have a member self-service portal that will enable MAG members to initiate selected tasks.  The required user roles include at least the following: - MAG System Administrator - MAG Officer - Health facility MAG focal point - Member
