Request for Proposal: Consultancy Framework

ActionAid UK is seeking to establish a Consultant Framework of highly skilled, professional consultants to help us deliver our strategy.

We are a leading international development organisation, working with over 15 million people in 45 countries for a world free from poverty, inequality and injustice. We work to to strengthen the capacity and agency of people living in poverty and exclusion, especially women, to assert their rights.

Over the strategy period from 2017-2022, we will:

  • Significantly reduce the risk of violence against women and girls;

  • Fight for women’s equal rights to economic opportunities; and

  • Prioritise women and girls’ rights and leadership in humanitarian crises

ActionAid UK is part of the ActionAid Federation, and as such plays a key role in global fundraising to support the work of the global federation. As part of the 2017-2022 strategy, ActionAid UK has committed to increase annual income significantly by 2022 through three primary fundraising teams within ActionAid UK.

  • International Development Policy and Practice (IDPP) plays a key role in securing and managing ActionAid UK’s institutional funding for development programmes and projects from donors including the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), Comic Relief and the European Commission Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO). 

  • Philanthropy and Partnerships (P&P) leads ActionAid UK’s work to secure and manage funding from trusts, foundations, corporate partners and major donors.

In order to deliver the strategy, these teams need to scale up the quantity, quality and value of grant and contract proposals that are submitted on behalf of ActionAid UK. To this end, ActionAid UK has established a Consultant Framework of highly skilled, professional consultants to support our programme funding work.

Submissions for inclusion into the Framework will be reviewed on a quarterly basis, and this year should be submitted by 23:59 on the following dates:

31 March 2021

30 June 2021

Any submissions received after a deadline date will be held for review after the next quarter's deadline; resubmission is not required, and receipt will be acknowledged.
