The FANIKISHAInstitutional Strengthening project is a five-year cooperative agreement (2011-2016), funded by USAID/Kenya and implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), Pact Inc., Danya
International, and the Regional AIDS Training Network (RATN). FANIKISHA aims to build the institutional capacity of 4-8 national level Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and their affiliates to empower them to play a more strategic role in working with the Government of Kenya and other stakeholders to deliver effective health services at the community level.
FANIKISHA is in the process of establishing an Institutional Strengthening Marketplace where CSOs are able to initiate business and establish contacts necessary to improve their institutional capacity. The marketplace will be a combination of a digital interface along with face-to-face events where relevant.
Kenyan Institutional Strengthening service providers and CSO customers meet to familiarize, engage and transact relevant business in a quality-assured environment.
FANIKISHA, therefore, invites expressions of interest from potential local individual and corporate institutional strengthening service providers in the following organizational functional areas:
Organizational governance, leadership and management: Human resource and change management
- Organizational planning and resource mobilization: Project management
- Financial management, administration and procurement: Advocacy, networking and alliance building
- Monitoring, evaluation, reporting and knowledge management: Grants and sub-grants management
- Communication, information and records: management Organizational development
They will also get the opportunity to deliver services to the 4-8 national CSOs and affiliates as the CSOs use their mentored Institutional Strengthening grants to directly procure services and products from the marketplace.
The qualified service providers will be included in the directory of institutional strengthening service providers to be circulated extensively by FANIKISHA to potential CSO buyers beyond the 4-8 national CSOs and their affiliates.
All institutional strengthening service providers intending to submit the EOI should send an email with subject title – IS Service Provider EOI [vendor name] to firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and the application templates.
Applicants can express interest in more than one institutional strengthening area. Application deadline is 5 p.m. on 30th March 2012.
