The Association of African Universities is calling for applications from consultants to undertake a mid-term review of its 2016-2020 Strategic Plan.
The Mid-Term Review (MTR) will assess the progress of AAU 2016 – 2020 Strategic Plan. It will also highlight issues and challenges affecting effective and efficient implementation of the Strategic Plan and recommend changes where necessary.
The review is being undertaken at the midpoint of the Strategic Plan’s implementation and will pave the way for improved delivery for the remaining Plan’s duration and propose amendments (if any) required in the Strategic Plan’s implementation arrangements and/or institutional linkages in order to effectively and sustainably contribute to improved performance of African Higher Education Institutions and the AAU Secretariat.
