2. THE REQUIREMENT
The requirement is summarized below.
BBC Media Action Nigeria is planning to conduct a round of research compromising both quantities (baseline survey) and quantitative (formative research & expert panel) components to understand and benchmark people’s knowledge, perceptions, attitudes and extent of engagement around security and justice issues in Nigeria as well as assess media usage among the project’s target populations. The study, particularly the baseline survey and qualitative formative research, are to be conducted among males and females who are between the ages of 15 and 45 years in five (5) focal states namely Borno, Enugu, Kano, Lagos and the FCT; while there are no age and location restrictions for the expert panel. It is against this background to conduct this round of research.
Upon commissioning, BBC Media Action will provide the agency with the survey questionnaire, discussion guides and recruiting questionnaires in English and local languages as may be applicable per location. The agency will be responsible for piloting the instrument and providing feedback on the piloting process to BBC Media Action.
Preferably, data for the survey will be collected via electronic data collection approach (or as may be otherwise agreed if adjustable, will be collected using pen and paper).
BBC Media Action will work with the successful agency in the selection of specific urban and rural localities as well as a suitable group breakdown/structure for qualitative stands of work while BCC Media Action will provide the agency with the sample size that is considered most appropriate for the survey. The selected agency will be required to propose a sampling design which is expected to be proportional to each state’s population size (i.e. sampling proportional to size), as well as random and self-weighting. The successful agency will be expected to provide the sampling frame for the survey to BBC Media Action for final checks and approval ahead of data collection.
The fieldwork and all data management related tasks (quantitative survey data entry, qualitative transcription etc.) are expected to have been completed by the 30th of April 2018.
