Evaluation Rationale: The ICRG is seeking a midterm evaluation to create and utilize significant leverage from recently completed flagship research and continue an upward trajectory toward our program outputs. We are accepting proposals from either a firm or an individual – seeking a contractor who will work in partnership with the ICRG team. CRED differs in its nature from a traditional field level project – even one that might be focused on policy change. Therefore, we are seeking a mid-term evaluation that will help the ICRG to develop a range of strategic options to heighten its effectiveness under each of its pillars. Download the complete RFP here.
