1.3 Scope of workThe scope of work for the assignment includes conducting formative research (together with water quality testing) for exploring the existing status of WASH status in schools and health facilities which will provide background information as well as necessary inputs for designing the project. Furthermore, the assignment will also include conducting baseline and end line survey which will measure the benchmark at the start of the project and project accomplishment (success) by the end of the project. Baseline and endline surveys will be primarily focused on measuring project indicators as per the M&E framework of the project.
