Position Summary:

MSI is recruiting an independent expert with extensive knowledge and experience in the Pakistani energy sector, particularly hydroelectric and/or thermal energy generation, to participate on a five-person team to conduct a performance evaluation of the USAID-funded, Energy Policy Project (EPP) in Pakistan.  EPP is a multi-year initiative to provide technical assistance to increase power generation, reduce transmission losses, increase cost recovery, introduce new technologies and facilitate Government of Pakistan (GOP) reforms within the energy sector. The evaluation will focus on assessing EPP’s effectiveness in achieving its planned results, along with identifying the factors that have contributed to success or lack thereof. The evaluation will take place during the last year of program implementation and will serve a dual purpose of learning to what extent the project’s planned results have been achieved and how sustainable they are and to inform the design of USAID’s future support of energy sector reforms in Pakistan.
