The application should consist of a technical proposal, a proposed budget, CVs for the proposed team, and corresponding work samples. As a minimum the proposal should include a reflection on ethical standards for evaluations, any sensitivities of the topic at hand and a detailed methodology and approach which clearly demonstrate the proposed data collection and link to the evaluation questions. Please note that the SEU is particularly interest to receive proposals with creative and innovative ways to achieve the stated evaluation purpose.

Proposals should include a separate financial quotation for the complete services, stated in Euros (EUR). The budget should present consultancy fee according to the number of expected working days over the entire period, both in totality and as a daily fee.
