Once the concept bids are approved by the Prosperity Fund Programme Board successful bidders will be asked to submit their Full Bids. These will then be subject to a final evaluation of the Prosperity Fund Programme Board.
- Project proposals must contribute directly to the Programme Strategy. If there is any doubt, potential bidders can consult the programme team in Mexico to check strategic relevance of the project purpose, before submitting concept bids.
- The primary beneficiary of the project proposal submitted to the Prosperity Fund must be Mexico (included in the OECD DAC list), in line with DAC criteria. Project proposals must be submitted in the Concept Bid form .
- Project ideas must be accompanied by detailed budget proposals submitted in the Activity Based Budget .
- Embassy is looking for practical interventions that will lead to a real and timely difference to decision-making. Proposals focusing purely on research, analysis, seminars or workshops will not be relevant unless they lead to specific and measurable action. Infrastructure projects are not funded by the Prosperity Fund.
- Proposals should outline impact. They want to know what changes the project will make.
- Proposals should demonstrate that host governments have been consulted and are supportive or, if they have not, the project proposal should explain how the project has sufficient buy-in from the necessary stakeholders to deliver expected outcomes.
- Proposals should demonstrate that the project will produce sustainable outcomes.
