The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO ) is seeking to appoint a Supplier to oversee and manage The Evidence Fund, a single coordinated, research and evidence platform that supports urgent, mid- and longer-term knowledge generation, synthesis, translation and engagement. The Evidence Fund brings together several programmes previously delivered across RED into a single coordinated platform programme. The primary responsibility of the Supplier will be to manage procurement competitions for research and evaluation projects, conduct due diligence assessments on prospective sub-contracted Research -Pool providers, and programme manage research projects implemented by sub-contracted research organisations. The Supplier will also have responsibility for a number of cross-cutting activities in relation to the programme, including knowledge management and dissemination; monitoring and learning, and establishing a technical assistance facility for additional administrative and programme management support to FCDO and wider-RED activities in East Africa, South Asia, and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) . The initial duration of the programme will be 34 months with an initial budget of £35,800,000 inclusive of local government taxes, but exclusive of VAT. FCDO anticipates that the budget allocation for delivery of Core Team Portfolio Management Services does not exceed 12% (£4,296,000.00) of the initial budget. FCDO will retain options to enhance the programme budget, by up to £ 36,200,000 and extend the programme by an additional three years.
