The Conflict, Stability and Security Fund — a framework contract within the U.K.'s cross-government funding strategy — is now open for bidding. Organizations have until March 28 to register their interest online and complete a selection questionnaire. With a 1.2 billion pound budget for 2017-2018, it presents a critical funding opportunity for organizations working to support peace-building, development, and security assistance in areas at-risk of conflict or instability.
This webinar gives business development professionals an inside look at the CSSF procurement process — just ahead of the deadline to submit the standard questionnaire.
During this one-hour webinar, we covered:
• The essentials of the fund, including its purpose, priorities, and portfolio
• An in-depth look at the procurement process
• Guidance for how your organization can engage with the CSSF
