Open evaluation opportunities

Because without measurement, we are guessing.

We use external organisations to evaluate the majority of our grants, ensuring we get the independent, high-quality and actionable evidence that forms the backbone of our decision-making.

Where possible, we open these evaluations projects up to wider competition. Please check back in regularly to see if we are running any competitions. 

All current requests for proposal (RFPs) can be found below.

Request for Proposal

Automatic Malnutrition Diagnostics 

We are commissioning the development of a Proof of Concept for an automated malnutrition diagnostic tool. The solution would allow for the (e.g. image-based) diagnosis of a child's nutritional state and the tool should perform as well as, or better than, current manual techniques. Proposals may address the diagnosis of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), Low Birth Weight (LBW) or stunting. The tool will be evaluated against commonly used approaches, such as Mid-Upper Arm Circumference and Weight-to-Height measurements.

Initiative for Action Transparency 

In partnership with the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT), we are commissioning a monitoring and evaluation consultancy to develop and refine ICAT's monitoring framework and data collection systems, and carry out a review of the progress achieved by ICAT.   This is expected to be a nine month consultancy.
