Evaluation of Swedish civil society organisations
About one-third of the annual billion-crown fund for Swedish NGOs will for the first time be up for grabs next year as Sida phases in new rules for its framework organisations. (See DT 12/11)
Sida now announces that a tender is open for organisational assessments, based on certain qualification criteria, of CSOs that will inform Sida’s future decisions concerning these CSOs’ possible qualification as framework and /or strategic partner organisations. In total, approximately 30 organisations will be assessed during the period 2012-2014.
The planned timeframe is as follows: 11 current organisations and an expected seven applying organisations are to be assessed during spring 2012 with a deadline for final reports set at June 15, 2012. Sida also has the intention of assessing another 12 current CSOs during 2013-2014.
The deadline for the submission of tenders is January 5, 2012.
