The funding landscape is changing as grant funding declines and donors channel more and more funds through competitive tenders. Delivered by commercial contracting specialist Haniya Dar-Tobin, this course gives you the tools needed to address this change. 

Find out how your organisation will need to adapt, understand the risks and obligations, and make sure you can distinguish yourself at bid stage. Haniya sits on review boards evaluating commercial contract applications for INGOs so you will benefit from her insight to increase the chances of success from your first application.

What you will learn

  • How to adapt your organisation to move from grant applications to contract tenders.
  • What the application process involves and the different roles your organisation can take.
  • How to build more effective partnerships by reviewing the risks from different perspectives.
  • Understand what your organisation is committing to and how to anticipate and prevent future challenges.
