The Department for International Development (DFID) invites tenders for releasing the transformational potential of extractives for economic development: data component and online resource hub. This five-year programme intends to help drive economic development and eradicate poverty through effective management of natural resources.
Tenderers will deliver two projects under this programme:
•enable governments, civil society and investors to revolutionise their use of data from transparency initiatives for accountability and improved policy-making in five countries;
•support a resource hub on extractives to build capacity and coordinate knowledge and supplier skills globally so that governments can manage extractives better.
DFID will hold an early market engagement event in London on 29 July 2014 to field questions and take comments.
