Submission of concept notes

The Stability Fund regularly issues calls for concept notes covering a wide range of development needs throughout Somalia. At this stage of the process, the Fund typically examines concept notes for the quality and innovation of ideas, the applicant’s ability to operate in the locality, and their use of evidence and logical rationale to justify their proposed initiative. We strongly encourage new thinking and departure from a ‘business as usual’ approach.

Stage 1

Concept note evaluation

An independent evaluation panel including Fund staff and external experts reviews all applications. The panel scores each concept note using the predetermined, published criteria. Depending on the volume of applications received, the Fund usually completes this phase of the process within 10 working days. The Panel then recommends a shortlist of applicants to proceed to the next stage.

Stage 2

Applicant meeting

Shortlisted applicants are invited to attend a meeting where each applicant is given an opportunity to ask questions regarding the proposal guidelines. These meetings are generally held at our offices in Somalia.

Stage 3

Call for proposals

Applicants are invited to submit their proposal according to specific criteria disclosed in the call for proposals. There is strictly no communication between the Fund and applicants during this stage of the process.

Stage 4

Evaluation of proposals

An independent evaluation panel comprising of Fund staff and external experts review all proposals. The panel scores each proposal using the predetermined criteria. Depending on the quantity of proposals, the Fund usually completes this phase of the process within 10 working days. The Panel then recommends a shortlisted set of applicants to proceed to the next stage.

Stage 5

Contracting

This stage of the application process consists of a due diligence assessment, a capacity assessment and a series of negotiation meetings with applicants where terms of partnership and technical aspects of proposals and their budgets are refined. The Fund reserves the right at any stage of the process to enter into agreement with one, a number of, or none of the applicants.
