Centre of excellence on impact evaluation of international development

The Department for International Development (DFID a department of the UK government) invites tenders to establish a centre of excellence on impact evaluation of international development.

The centre will provide a range of services which will develop and strengthen the evidence base for what works and what does not work in international development, as well as developing and strengthening evaluation research capacity within the UK and internationally.

The contracted organisation will need to establish and maintain a high quality centre with strong management structures and commitment to cross-institutional working.

DFID will contribute up to £20 million in core funding over a period of five years. This will represent 80 per cent of income in the first three years, reducing to around 50 per cent in years four and five.
