Background

Since the 2016 London Anti-Corruption summit we’ve been working in partnership with TI chapters around the world to ensure that governments deliver on the anti-corruption and transparency commitments made in London to ensure accountability to their citizens.  

Through our bilateral partnerships with TI chapters in Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Mexico, Jordan, Afghanistan, Ghana, Kenya, we’ve supported them to hold governments to account on established Global Standards in the prevention of corruption; from ensuring effective whistle-blower protections to the roll out of national anti-corruption action plans. We’ve been tracking progress on commitments made at the London summit and advocating for their implementation to the government. Our advocacy has accelerated implementation of complex legislation on beneficial ownership, whistleblowing, and anti-corruption.  

Five years on from the summit, we’re seeking to engage a consultant to work with us to design the next phase of this work. In conjunction with our partner chapters, we want to ensure that 1. governments have strong transparency mechanisms in place, and 2. that civil society organisations have the capacity and skills to continue to hold governments to account.  

We are seeking a consultant to lead the development of a project proposal for this work. 

The objectives of this consultancy are to: 

  • Compile learnings, experience and best practice from work to date. Use these learnings to co-develop a new project concept and theory of change with partners.  
  • Develop a fully-fledged, costed project proposal for the next phase of the programme’s work. 

 

Key Deliverables 

We’re looking for a consultant to work with us and TI chapters who were involved in the Promise to Practice project to synthesise learning and existing experiences gained under promise to practice. The consultant will utilise these in the design and develop the next phase of the project’s work.  

The consultant will build upon lessons learnt from the project to develop a compelling project proposal that empowers and enables civil society to hold governments to account and to demand greater transparency and integrity.  

  1. In conjunction with TI chapters, use learnings from the Promise to Practice project to develop project conceptual approach and theory of change. 
  1. Work closely with chapters, and partners to develop new project proposal(s) to be put to donors for funding. 
  1. Develop project theory of change/log-frames, budgets, and conceptual approaches as part of project proposals. 
  1. Identify and engage chapters and relevant external partners in the development of proposals. Work with them to identify areas of synergy, and value add. 
  1. Identify opportunities, including potential donors, or upcoming bids in consultation with our fundraising team.

  • Adept in utilising participatory programme development approaches and tools to develop proposals.
