1 PROSPERITY FUND TURKEY INFORMATION NOTE FOR THE PROGRAMME Background The Foreign and Commonwealth Office s programme funds seek to create real, measurable outcomes in support of the UK s Foreign Policy goals. The Prosperity Fund directly supports the implementation of Foreign Policy Priority 2: build Britain s prosperity by increasing exports and investment, opening markets, ensuring access to resources, and promoting sustainable global growth. The Fund will focus on promoting sustainable global growth in line with the UK s development objectives on sustainable development and improving welfare. Turkey is one of fifteen priority countries / regions. We aim to develop projects under three main strands: Promoting Sustainable, Efficient and Open Economy Enhancing Energy Security and Promoting Energy Efficiency Tackling Climate Change through Low Carbon Economic Development in Turkey Key Dates: Open call for concept bids 11 November 2014 Deadline for submission of concept bids 19 December 2014 Successful bidders will be invited to submit full bids 19 January 2015 Deadline for submission of full bids 10 February 2015 Successful bidders will be invited to sign contract March 2015 How to apply for funding The British Embassy in Ankara is seeking project proposals under the Prosperity Fund Programme. Project proposals must outline a clear link to the Fund s objectives and indicators. Please refer to the Turkey Programme Strategy for more information and the following guidance. Bidding Process: Interested organisations should submit a concept bid focused on areas specified under the programme strategy. Once the concept bids are approved by the Prosperity Fund Programme Board, successful bidders will be asked to submit their full bids. After the final evaluation of the Prosperity Fund Post Programme Board, results will be announced and only successful bidders will be informed. Projects will be implemented within the next

2 financialyear which starts on 1 April 2015 and ends on 31 March Please note that even thoughthere is some room for multi-year projects this opportunity is very limited. Please contact Project Officer for further information. (See below for contact details.) Please note that only successful bidders will be contacted according to the timetable provided. We are happy to announce that we will organize a Q&A session on Twitter for your questions and inqueries. The exact time and hour will be announced onembassy Facebook and Twitter accounts (username is UKinTurkey ) as well as on UKinTurkey website. How to Submit Application: Please submit your concept bids via to the Prosperity Fund Coordinator at the British Embassy. We recommend that organisations contact the Prosperity Fund Coordinator to discuss their proposals before submitting them. Contact details are as follows: Ms. Hande ÖZÜT Prosperity Fund Coordinator Tel: We will send confirmation receipt once we receive your application. Applicant requirements: Please note that there is no limit to the number of proposals any organisations can submit. Any organisation holding a legal entity can apply for funding. Please note that we cannot make any pre-payments. So the successful bidders need to make payments and then ask us to reimburse these project expenses. The implementer should be able to receive money transfers from us. We don t support projects submitted by individuals. Partnerships: Please note that partnerships and co-funding in the proposed projects are not mandatory but are encouraged. Application Limits: There is no official upper limit for project budgets. Project budgets exceeding Euros limit will have to implement the CFCU procurement procedures.

3 Successful projects will have less than 12 months of implementation time frame, until the end of March 2016, so please plan accordingly. We will exceptionally fund either 1 or 2 multiyear projects this FY. You may choose to apply with a multiyear project idea but please note that this opportunity is very limited. We expect more competition among multiyear project bid proposals. Due to limited resources, we expect to fund projects scaling around 30-90K (These are estimates) and micro scale projects that have less than 10K budget. Real values of course can change and will be assessed based on activities of the specific project. Projects must demonstrate that: They are practical and have high-impact interventions that will lead to a real and timely transformation in high level policy and action on the ground. Proposals focusing purely on research, analysis, seminars or workshops will not be relevant unless they lead to specific and measurable action. They will trigger further incremental action and gain leverage out of proportion to the money the FCO spends eg. by leveraging co-funding from co-donors. They are adding value to, and not duplicating, other donor activity. Host governments have been consulted and are supportive. If they have not, the bid should provide evidence on how the project has sufficient buy-in from the necessary stakeholders to deliver the expected outcomes. Working with governments and official bodies is more likely to result in high impact, transformational outcomes which outlive the duration of the project. But partners can include business and NGOs where their influence can bring around policy change. Projects can be at regional or state level within a country, provided that the ability to replicate is built into the proposal and sufficient impact is likely. Proposals should outline impact and the changes the project will make. Proposals should include any publicity, dissemination and outreach activities in the budget from the outset. Any media work should be directly related to the project proposal. But any paid for marketing work needs to seek exemption from the Marketing and Advertising Freeze.(Please consult to the Project Coordinator) Implementers management and administrative costs should be no more than 10% of the overall budget.

4 Projects should be based in pounds sterling so that the implementer carries the exchange rate risk. There are no project funds to manage this risk. Please note that the project payments are made in Turkish Lira The FCO places a strong emphasis on programme and project-level evaluation. Project implementing organisations must submit quarterly progress reports for the duration of the project, and a project completion form within three months of the project conclusion. Some Examples of Prosperity Fund activities from previous years Open Global Economy Supporting FTAs and the multilateral trade system Promoting openness in public procurement Promoting intellectual property rights Developing policies to encourage FDI Reform of finance sector Improving foreign access to markets Supporting public-private partnerships Easing unnecessary regulatory burdens Improving public sector efficiency Strengthening business networks Combating bribery and corruption Supporting G20 Presidency of Turkey Climate Change Climate diplomacy in the UNFCCC Training in low carbon policies Shaping policies to incentivise low carbon Capacity building in climate-related legislation Shaping national forestry strategies (eg REDD, sustainable management and trade, better understanding of ecosystems)
