Request for Proposals: Project Support Services

SKL International delivers a number of projects on behalf of the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR). In these projects SKL International has a need for a range of consulting services that complement and support project teams and partners. We are therefore establishing a framework contract with five Lots, reflecting different project support services:

Lot 1. Designing, leading, and managing change processes and learning programmes, including development of learning materials.
Lot 2. Gender mainstreaming including gender analyses, advice, coaching and capacity development.
Lot 3. Integrating a rights-based approach into SKL International’s projects, including analyses, advice, coaching and capacity development.
Lot 4. Using strategic communication as a process enhancer and development of communication materials, including written, visual and video-based materials.
Lot 5. Support to monitoring and evaluation systems

Up to five suppliers will be selected per Lot. The initial duration of the contract is one year, renewable up to a maximum total of four years (1+2+1).

Interested consultants are invited to submit a proposal for one or more Lots. Details of the services, including how to apply, are contained in the Request for Proposals and its annexes. These may be downloaded individually from the list below or together as a .zip file:
