Libya: Partnerships for Resilience - Organisational Capacity Assessments

Institute for War & Peace Reporting (IWPR) invites your firm to participate in this competitive solicitation for pricing, delivery, and terms on the following services for IWPR’s office in Libya.


IWPR is an independent, non-governmental organization which gives voice to people at the frontlines of conflict and transition to help them drive change.


The Institute for War & Peace Reporting will deliver the Partnerships for Resilience and Free Expression (P4R) project over the next 15 months. The aim of this project is to foster a safe and enabling environment for CSOs, human rights defenders, journalists, and women activists so they can operate more effectively in Libya. IWPR has designed the P4R program to strengthen the resilience of CSOs to the range of external and internal threats they face by helping to build a more capable and networked civil society.


IWPR is seeking an organization to conduct an organizational capacity assessment of six civil society partner organizations. The six capacity assessments must cover seven elements of organizational development:

  • Strategic focus
  • Stakeholder relations
  • Organizational structure
  • Human resources (HR)
  • Systems and procedures
  • Financial management
  • Program management

Based on the capacity assessments, a capacity development plan must be produced for the members of the 6 partner organisations as well as institutional development plans for each individual organisation. It is expected that the capacity assessments will increase the understanding of the organizations vulnerabilities and the capacity development needs of civil society partners. The capacity assessments should be both quantitative and qualitative in nature in order to  enable an end of project evaluation that can utilize the assessments as a baseline.

The capacity assessments will be conducted between December 2020-February 2021.


Total price must include all taxes and fees, in US Dollar, and should be expressed in a per unit basis.
