Consultant for Start Fund Bangladesh Midterm Evaluation

Date : september 24th, 2019
Deadline for submission of offer : September 30th, 2019

The Start Fund Bangladesh (2017-2020) is a £10 million rapid emergency response fund set up by
the Start Network with support from UK aid and hosted by ACF Bangladesh. Modelled on the
successful Start Fund that activates funding within 72 hours of a crisis alert, the fund has been
setup to be accessible to both national and international member NGOs operating in Bangladesh
to respond early and fast to under the radar emergencies in Bangladesh. These decisions are made by humanitarian actors within member agencies with all projects selected within the country or region of the crisis, while projects start within 7 days and finish within 45 days.
As such, the expected impact and outcome of Start Fund Bangladesh is that “Loss of lives,
livelihoods and dignity are minimised”, given that the “Humanitarian responses are rapid, informed and adapted to the need of the affected communities” respectively. These are expected to be achieved as a result of the following outputs.

  • Establish a national civil society owned fund that is i) open and inclusive; ii) governed by
    evidence based, transparent and neutral decision making iii) rapid and iv) anticipatory
  • Expand the number of local members (actors and agencies) that can participate in strategic
    decision making and access funding more directly
  • Demonstrate the value and complement existing humanitarian preparedness and response to
    promote greater collaboration
