JIPS - Call for Requests

The Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) welcomes requests for support in preparing for, implementing or reporting on collaborative displacement profiling processes.
JIPS is now calling for support requests specifically in consideration of the upcoming 15 November 2017 deadline.

Services provided by JIPS

The Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) is an interagency service that supports operations undertaking profiling exercises of displacement situations. 
JIPS provides both on-site and remote assistance to all stages of the profiling process and has a particular interest in profiling exercises undertaken in protracted displacement situations and in urban settings in collaboration with Governments, humanitarian and development actors.
JIPS’ support can be provided for a scoping mission to help identify the need, relevance and/or feasibility for profiling in a particular context and to support planning. This is often relevant in operations where there is a lack of reliable and/or agreed upon displacement data. Alternatively, JIPS support can be requested for already planned/funded profiling exercises. This support can include a combination of the following services:
  • Support to identifying profiling objectives, including support to identifying the need, relevance and feasibility of profiling and support to initial planning;
  • Support to advocacy and consolidating stakeholder engagement, including support to establishing a coordination platform for the exercise and delivery of advocacy workshops for relevant in-country stakeholders;
  • Support to methodology and tools development, including support to developing questionnaires, guides, tabulation plans and data management systems;
  • Support to field organisation and data collection, including developing a comprehensive operational plan and training of staff;
  • Support to data processing, analysis and reporting, and dissemination of findings.
