CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

 

Ref. EOI/01/JSP/2016

 

 

Micro-Capital Grant for UNDP’s Project on “Strengthening rule of law by supporting the establishment of Access to Justice Clinics (AJCs) in Timor-Leste”

 

 

UNDP Timor-Leste, Dili invites interested NGOs/CBOs/CSOs to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI).

 

The Justice System Programme of UNDP is supporting the establishment of Access to Justice Clinics (AJCs) which will constitute a section of the Public Defenders’ Office (PDO) in Timor-Leste. These clinics will be staffed by civil society actors which will help strengthen the mandate of the PDO to provide free legal aid, mediation, and information services to the most vulnerable people in Timor-Leste. The AJCs will be piloted in the judicial districts of Baucau and Suai, and their specific activities will include:

·         Legal consultation

·         Referral services to the justice sector and other social services for vulnerable persons

·         Mediation

·         Legal information

·         Paralegal programme and development of a network to assist vulnerable persons.

 

The Justice System Programme of UNDP Timor-Leste hereby invites interested registered Local and Non-Governmental Organizations and National Institutions (CBOs, CSOs) to submit their Expression of Interest for the implementation of AJCs within a state-civil society partnership. Since this project aims to strengthen the mandate of the Public Defenders’ Office, potential conflict of interest will be a factor taken into account in the selection process. The AJCs will likely be located in the same premises as the Public Defenders’ Office. Ability to offer legal advice in civil cases as well as mediation skills in land dispute cases are highly desirable.

 

This call for Expression of Interest will lead to a pre-qualification of suitable grant recipients that will be invited to submit proposals to partner with the AJC project in implementing activities in the above-mentioned pilot judicial districts.

 

The implementation period for the grants is between 9 to 12 months and must be completed by August 2017. The grant is for a maximum amount of $115,000. Applications may be submitted individually or jointly by an association of up to two NGOs/CBOs/CSOs to implement the proposed activities. 

 
The deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is 17:30 hrs on Wednesday 10 August 2016
