The West Midlands Violence Reduction Unit (WMVRU) wants to commission an organisation who can support the development of and then deliver a detailed process and outcome evaluation of the work and strategy.
The evaluation will need to produce robust findings which can be used to measure change locally and help to determine the future development of the WMVRU
A maximum budget of £100,000 up until 31 March 2020 is attached to this project. However, we are conscious that the nature of this work will go beyond this timeline and will look to enhance the evaluation when next years’ budget is confirmed in January 2020. However, there is no guarantee at this early stage that future phases of the WMVRU will be funded and tenderers should take account of this.
In order to ensure transparency and objectivity, the evaluation of the WMVRU must be delivered in a manner to prevent any conflict of interest and protect the validity and soundness of the process.
It is envisaged there will be three parts to the evaluation:
Evaluation of a whole system approach to reducing violence
As part of the evaluation of the whole system we would expect the provider to address each of these.
Consortium and collaborative bids are welcomed, as is sub-contracting.
Closing date for applications is midday, 3rd January 2020.
Applications should be submitted to email@example.com.
Notification of shortlisting outcomes and any next steps will be sent out by no later than 5pm on the 10th January.
Clarification interviews will take place on the 15th January.
