Evaluation of the Newton Fund tender open



An incredible opportunity has just come up to lead the evaluation of the Newton Fund – the £375 million initiative supporting scientific collaborations between the UK and 15 partner countries over the next five years. The Fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of the partner countries and poor people living around the world.

The Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS), the administrators of the Newton Fund, are seeking someone to capture the Fund's on-going impact and delivery processes over five years. Drawing on monitoring data from Delivery Partners, BIS and Newton Fund country teams, the evaluation should also consider the delivery mechanisms and management processes of the Newton Fund.

One final report is expected in 2019, with several interim reports throughout the life of the Fund. Each report should address the Fund's summative and formative impacts to date, its value for money, its delivery processes along with recommendations to improve the programme.

The deadline for applications is 19 June 2015.

The contract duration is 1/7/2015 – 1/12/2019.
