Call for Expressions of Interest
Strategic partnership to support the development and implementation of an Early Childhood Development initiative in Gia Lai province, Viet Nam.
The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), is inviting submissions of Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitably qualified and experienced International Organisations to enter into a strategic partnership with the New Zealand Aid Programme and the Gia Lai Provincial People's Committee (together "the Strategic Partners") for the purposes of successfully developing and implementing a programme aimed at improving the quality of Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Early Childhood Development (ECD) for ethnic minority children in Gia Lai province ("the Project").
This EOI is designed to identify qualified organisations with relevant capability and experience for supporting the Gia Lai Provincial People's Committee and Department of Education and Training (DOET) to achieve improved educational outcomes for ethnic minorities in Gia Lai province. The New Zealand Aid Programme is seeking innovative and evidence based approaches to improve learning outcomes and development of ethnic minority children in line with the National Plan of Action on Education for All.
Following the EOI process, the selected organisation will be required to identify and agree early win activity for implementation in parallel with completing a detailed Project design. Drawing on New Zealand expertise where appropriate, the organisation will provide technical assistance to implement the project and provide quality assurance. The duration of the Project is expected to be up to five years (with an initial contract for three years) and with a budget for the work of up to NZ$ 2.5 million over five years.
