Request for Proposal : Video Production in 3 Districts & Editing


Budget code             : 5.8.5 & 5.8.6
name of activity      : Video Production in 3 Districts & Editing

Barnfonden, YSKK, SID, and LPMM are implementing the project titled “Strengthening civil society and social accountability for improved access to quality, inclusive ECD services in NTT”, funded by European Union and SIDA. The project started in March 2018 and will end by February 2021. The objective of the project is increased access to inclusive and child friendly Early Childhood Development (ECD) in marginalized South West, East Sumba and Kupang Districts through greater capacity of Local Authorities (LAs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), enhanced collaboration, with tangible impacts on policy making, resource allocation and the quality of service delivery.

To ensure project visibility, Barnfonden has consolidated the communication plan in reference to EU communication and visibility guidance. One of the communication strategies is video production in 3 districts. The video will capture the project success stories and lessons learned from 3 targeted districts: Kupang, East Sumba, and Southwest Sumba districts. Barnfonden will have an open competitive bidding procurement procedure with submissions from at least 3 vendors.   Barnfonden initially planned to have 1 vendor to produce the video from 3 districts. However, due to Covid19 mitigation risks, Barnfonden will open the possibility to having the following combination:

1) 1 vendor produces video production and editing in all 3 districts and this vendor is responsible to ensure their resources to cover all 3 districts, or

2) 2 vendors produce the video (1 works in Kupang district and 1 works in East Sumba and Southwest Sumba districts) and 1 out of 2 vendors is responsible for the editing for all 3 districts.

The decision will be based on the proposal submitted by the vendors to Barnfonden’s steering committee. Please send links to examples of videos you have produced previously.

Purpose of the Contract

The purpose of this contract is to hire video production and editing vendors to record the project lesson learned and success stories in accordance to this ToR.

Results to be achieved by the Contractor

The result is a video describing project lessons learned and success stories in 3 districts. The video will be supplied produced and edited, and ready for screening via a digital link and on 10 flash drives.

The video should be no more than 30 minutes in length. The audience will be other community organizations and ECD committees in Indonesia, local village authorities, other NGOs, and the donor organizations. The storyline will be developed by the vendor and approved by Barnfonden, but should include footage of ECD centers (with appropriate permissions granted, as instructed by Barnfonden), interviews with CSOs, LAs and ECD Committee members describing why, what and how they participated in the project, achievements, challenges and advice, and stories of significant change. Viewers should feel informed and interested in advocating to their own Authorities for increased funding for ECD, understanding the process the project took to achieve this.

The video should be in Bahasa Indonesia, and include subtitles in English (assistance in translation will be provided).

The key elements of this project, which provide the background reference for the video production and should be captured in the video, are described below.
