Call for proposals to enhance Ukraine’s COVID-19 response and reduce opportunities for corruption

Background

In support of the UK Aid programme and the Good Governance Fund, which are helping Ukraine implement its economic, governance, and defence reform efforts, build resilience, and address the humanitarian consequences of Russian aggression in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, the British Embassy Kyiv is announcing a call for proposals.

We invite proposals from civil society organisations and NGOs for a project to enhance the effectiveness of Ukraine’s COVID-19 response measures by increasing accountability, oversight, and transparency, and/or strengthening participation in COVID-19 response, thereby reducing opportunities for corruption and leading to better outcomes.

Interventions should focus primarily on the national level, as opposed to the local-level, where the Embassy is already supporting initiatives through a prior tender. Further detail on the scope, outputs, and deliverables of this project can be found in the statement of requirements.

Budget and timeframe

The British Embassy Kyiv has allocated up to £150,000 for this project, which can be awarded to one or multiple grants. Proposals should make clear the total proposed cost up to this ceiling.

The term of the grant agreement is expected to be up to eight (8) months. The contract is anticipated to commence by August 2020 and must end no later than 31 March 2021. There may be a possibility of an extension depending on funding arrangements for the next financial year.

Bidding process

The deadline for submitting proposals is 12pm (Kyiv time) on 27 July.

We aim to evaluate proposals and contact successful bidders by 7 August.

Proposals should be sent to the British Embassy Kyiv by email at
