IDB Seeks Proposals for Impact Assessment Study

The Inter-American Development Bank is seeking proposals to help it assess the impact of institutional capacity-building programs for government agencies in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Through the Measuring Institutional Impact on the Region of the Americas competition, or MIRA, the bank aims to identify eight candidates that will receive funding worth USD50,000 each. The competition is open to public institutions, either individually or in partnership with research centers, nonprofit or for-profit organizations, bilateral agencies and academic institutions.

Proposals will be evaluated by a team of experts based on the following criteria: clarity of objectives, capacity to provide empirical documentation, ability to demonstrate causal relationship, and incorporation of elements of cost-efficiency.

The competition is open until May 15.
