5% Initiative: OPEN Call for proposals 2
Proposals are accepted till 23.05.2016
Eligible EECA countries:
Aim: selecting projects that complement the grants of the Global Fund aiming to contribute to the building of a system to deploy the response to health needs at every level of national territory (local community and national) by:
- Supporting the development, reinforcement or maintenance of the capacity of personnel working in the health domain at every level.
- Fostering constant and sustainable access for populations to high-quality health products.
In this context
Definition of personnel working in the health domain: all individuals whose activity is aimed essentially at improving health. This includes the medical, paramedical professions and community workers.
High-quality health products: health products for which the production chain meets quality assurance standards and which guarantee patient safety.
ELIGIBLE TYPES OF PROPOSAL
A number of different types of project may be proposed:
- Operational research projects
- Capacity-building projects for national actors
- Projects to strengthen the supply and procurement chain
They must correspond to the objectives of the Call for Proposals in all cases.
Proposals cannot be for direct projects for prevention, diagnosis or treatment, nor clinical research projects. They must obligatorily be compatible with a capacity-building or operational research logic.
Admissibility and eligibility criteria
Expertise France will verify initially that proposals submitted meet all the following criteria for admissibility:
Projects must have a duration of 24 to 36 months.
Amount requested and geographical coverage
- The total amount of the grant will cover 60% to 100% of the budget for the project and will be in the range €250,000 – €1,000,000 for projects implemented in a single country, and in the range €250,000 – €1,500,000 for projects implemented in more than one country.
- Projects cannot include more than five implementation countries unless they are backed by an existing network or sub-regional organisation. Clear justification for such a regional logic must be given and will receive close attention from assessors.
Status and partnerships
In order to be able to apply for a grant the applicant:
§ must be a legal entity with a head office in an eligible country or France and
§ implementation must be in partnership (more than one organisation involved) and
§ must include at least one partner from the beneficiary countries and
§ must not have bylaws that would not permit Expertise France or any other external auditor appointed by Expertise France to perform checks and verifications on site and enjoy an appropriate right of access to sites and premises where the project is to be conducted, including their IT systems, and access to all documents and computer data relating to the technical and financial management of the project.
Completeness of applications
The applications submitted must contain all the documents and information requested and listed in the Call for Proposals (block 6).
For projects considered admissible, Expertise France will proceed to verify that they meet the following three criteria:
- The project’s objectives must match the purpose of the Call for Proposals.
- Projects must be compatible with a logic of reinforcement and complementarity with regard to Global Fund grants.
- The principal applicant organisation must possess sufficient management capacity to manage the requested budget.
Management capacity will be established on the basis of the presentation of the organisation, its financial statements for the previous two years and its estimated budget; also notably taken into account will be the organisation’s experience of managing similar budgets and its possession of adequate human resources.
Only projects meeting all the above criteria will be assessed.
More detailed description of admission conditions, evaluation criteria, requirements to budget, list of documents necessary for proposal and all necessary annexes are available on the 5% Initiative website.
