Call for proposals: Action Research grants

We are looking for research proposals that respond to the question: How we can improve the effectiveness and equity of public procurement in the recovery?

This is the second round of our action research grants. Read the results of the first round in our report: Findings and recommendations for better emergency procurement from 12 countries.

We will actively support researchers to use procurement data in identifying areas where policy reform could lead to measurable improvements in development outcomes: focusing on the equity of public procurement and/or the effectiveness of public procurement. We expect not only strong research projects, but also strong plans to convert research into action through advocacy. Research grants will be in the amount of US$ 3,000.

Applications are open until 31 January.
