Call for Proposals for Project Implementation Grant


Jointly funded by The Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC) and the World Bank (WB), the MASAM project (2015-2019) is implemented in 10 aimags and 3 Ulaanbaatar districts. The program aims to mainstream social accountability for more transparent, accountable and effective public resource management at national and local levels by:

  • Increasing the capacity of CSOs to hold government to account; and
  • Strengthening the institutionalization of social accountability by improving the effectiveness, formalization and sustainability of disclosure and participation mechanisms.

During its first year, MASAM sought to provide capacity building, funding and technical support to 10 priority aimag partners, through “subprojects”, based on a mixed criteria of poverty incidence, readiness for social accountability, and health and education indicators. It is meant to build effective collaboration among local government units, service providers, local organizations and citizens. Likewise, the project provides grants for the implementation of social accountability mechanisms and initiatives to tackle and resolve local issues in the health and education sectors, together with coaching and technical assistance support from pre-selected national NGOs.

For the upcoming second round of subproject support, the emphasis will be on maximizing the gains achieved in round 1 while focusing technical support on addressing the gaps. To better support these objectives, MASAM intends to enhance its technical support at the project level by working with a local implementing partner who can engage closely and efficiently with the subproject stakeholders and their partners. This call for grant proposals is for a Mongolia-based implementing partner, who will provide technical and administrative support to the MASAM team through direct engagement with the subprojects/sub-grantees.
