Invitation to Tender: Review of Best Impact Practice

Share this Publication


Author: Hannah Ormston and Rachel Heydecker

Year: 2021

The Carnegie UK Trust has released a new Invitation to Tender for a Review of Best Impact Practice.

In preparation for our next strategic plan which will commence later in 2021, this project aims to build on the Trust’s impact measurement knowledge. We seek to commission a contractor to undertake a review of best impact practice by similar policy-orientated organisations, and to inform an impact measurement framework for our work in 2021-25.

During 2020, a working group of Carnegie UK Trust staff have undertaken a review of our five-year impact. Having undertaken this work, we noted areas where we would like to make changes and amendments to the way we measure our impact; to streamline our approach and ensure that we are consistently and accurately collecting relevant data. We are interested in understanding how similar organisations approach and measure the impact of their work.

We recognise the relationship between advocacy change, policy change, practice change and social change is complex and contingent, approaching impact monitoring with curiosity. We see impact measurement as an opportunity for continuous learning and reflection.

The deadline for proposals is 12noon on Wednesday 17 February.
