Request for Proposals from Pre-Qualified Organizations Only
Regional Implementation Team

OPENING DATE: 10 March 2017
CLOSING DATE: 7 April 2017

On 9 February 2017, CEPF requested that organizations interested in serving as the Regional Implementation Team (RIT) for the Mediterranean Basin Biodiversity Hotspot submit an expression of interest by 23 February 2017 in order to pre-qualify to submit a formal proposal per the request for proposals (RfP) attached here. Eighteen eligible organizations submitted an expression of interest by the closing date and are named in the RfP. Only those 18 organizations are now invited to submit a formal proposal. Organizations not named in the RfP are free to join, as a subordinate partner, those pre-qualified organizations applying as a lead entity.

The organization selected to serve as the RIT, and any of its subordinate partners, will not be eligible to receive any other CEPF grants in the hotspot due to conflict of interest.

A conference call was held in English on Wednesday 8 March 2017 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, at which time CEPF representatives briefly described the expectations for the RIT and responded to participants’ questions. A full audio recording of the call is posted below.
