Wananchi Mobile Phone Survey: Request for Proposals

Mobile phone technology offers an exciting potential to collect data at reduced cost, and in a way that is more frequent and more responsive to the changing data needs for monitoring service delivery and accountability. Based on this idea, Uwazi at Twaweza seeks to implement the Wananchi Survey: a high frequency household survey using mobile phones in a nationally representative sample covering 1500 households in Tanzania. The data collected in this way will inform public debate about a wide range of public policies in Tanzania.

Twaweza is looking for competent and reputable organizations who can implement the two activities that this work entails: a) establishing, enlisting, training and surveying a sample of 1500 households that will participate in the mobile phone survey and b) developing and operating a call center for the monthly mobile phone surveys. The project will be implemented for an initial period of one year, and if successful, it will be repeated every year for an indefinite period of time. In subsequent years the frequency of the survey may be increased from monthly to twice monthly. The Wananchi Survey is also expected to be expanded into Kenya and Uganda.
