The Department for International Development has unveiled a list of organizations that are invited to submit full proposals under its Program Partnership Arrangements, or PPA, initiative.
In August, DfID invited non-governmental organizations from around the world to submit concept papers for the PPA initiative. The department has processed applications from various groups and has chosen 107 organizations to invite to submit a full proposal. The full list of invited organizations is on the DfID website. The deadline for submitting proposals is Oct. 29, 2010.
“Programme Partnership Arrangements (PPA) are strategic level arrangements which DFID currently has with more than 30 civil society organisations (CSOs),” DfID explains in a news release. “These arrangements provide the CSOs with flexible support and are allocated to CSOs that are best able to demonstrate real and practical impact on poverty reduction, significant policy engagement, and a clear fit with DFID’s values and priorities.”
