FRRR Disaster Resilient: Future Ready Burnett Inland (Queensland)
The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) has recently commenced the implementation of its Disaster Resilient: Future Ready (DR:FR) initiative in communities and across the Burnett Inland in Queensland. FRRR is delivering this program through local partner Red Earth Community Foundation. The program is made possible through the financial support of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Preparing Australian Communities – Local Stream, and Minderoo Foundation.
FRRR is seeking proposals from experienced social impact evaluation providers to work with us to:
- Design a Monitoring Evaluation Learning (MEL) approach for the program; and
- Undertake a comprehensive evaluation to understand the outcomes from this investment and the contribution the program has made to disaster resilience in individual communities and across the region.
For full details of the evaluation scope and submission requirements please see below:
All submissions must include a completed Budget Template (.docx).
- Demonstrated experience in social impact evaluation (as distinct from social research).
- Demonstrated understanding of the requirements, objectives, and motivation of the evaluation.
- Demonstrated knowledge of the program context, policy, purpose, and key stakeholders.
