a Proposal> Proposal
Step 1: Complete
the Proposal Form
Please complete Parts 1 through 4 of the proposal
form. The form may also be downloaded in Word
format or PDF format,
and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submitted
by fax to +1.202.530.0128, or mailed to:
Microfinance Management Institute
Global Fund for Materials Development
c/o The Open Society Institute
1120 19th Street, NW, 8th Floor
Washington, DC 20036
Proposals sent by email should be submitted only
ONCE with “GLOBAL FUND” in the subject heading.
Please submit the following documents with the proposal:
- Curriculum vitae plus two references
- Sample of previous work (similar to proposed
work, if possible)
If the documents noted above are not available in electronic form, please
mail or fax them as indicated above.
For email submissions, an email notification will
be generated automatically once all information and attachments
are received. Receipt of proposals by regular post will be confirmed
by the MFMI once all of the necessary information has been received.
Step 2: Review of Proposals
MFMI considers proposals only when it has received a completed form, including
a detailed budget and all required attachments. The MFMI will communicate
its acceptance or declination of a proposal within ten (10) business days.
MFMI may request some changes or information before reaching a final decision.
Proposals are accepted by MFMI on a continuous basis, or until further notice.
Step 3: Approval of Contract
Upon approval of a proposal, MFMI sends an email notifying its approval to
the Consultant. The email includes a contract outlining the terms of the
work for hire with MFMI to produce the proposed Academic Materials and includes
a timeframe and budget. Subject to agreement, the Consultant signs the contract
and returns it to MFMI by fax and mail. Once MFMI is in receipt of the signed
contract, MFMI notifies the Consultant that all activities outlined in the
proposal may commence.
Step 4: Request for Payment
Global Fund Consultants receive a consultancy fee plus reasonable expense reimbursement.
Consultants should submit to MFMI only one invoice per contract for all costs
once activities have been completed and the final work is ready to submit
to MFMI. Regardless of the final cost of the proposal activities, MFMI will
not disburse amounts greater than those committed in the contract without
the prior written consent of MFMI.
To request payment, the Consultant submits to MFMI
a cover sheet,
all documents prepared in connection with the proposal, and an
invoice. MFMI requires that all documents be submitted by email,
or other electronic form, so that they may be posted electronically
on its web site. The cover sheet, which may be downloaded here
in Word or PDF
format, requires summary information including an abstract,
a teaching guide describing how the materials are to be used, and
a list of all resources required to use the materials in a classroom
