RFP: Short-term contracts for research, scoping and analytical support

GFEMS is currently designing new funding activities in India and Bangladesh under its partnership with the UK Department for International Development, targeting commercial sexual exploitation, forced labor among migrant workers, and forced labor in apparel sectors.

As part of this design phase, GFEMS seeks proposals for the following 10 scopes of work, each of which constitutes a distinct RFP. Bids may come from individuals and organizations providing strategy, research and analysis services (this is not an RFP for implementation of programs). It is acceptable to bid on multiple RFPs, in which case please prepare a single proposal document in a way that allows the capabilities, plan, and costs for each RFP to be individually assessed:



See individual RFP links above for details.

PROPOSALS ARE DUE NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15 AT 11:59AM GMT (GREENWICH MEANT TIME) TO PROPOSALS@GFEMS.ORG.

Please help us spread the word by sharing with organizations in your network that might be a good fit for the current opportunities.
