Requests for Proposals

We regularly publish opportunities for agencies and companies to provide their goods and services and contribute to various areas of our work, through Requests for Proposals (RFPs). 

GAIN ensures that all procurement activities are carried out in a fair and transparent manner and in compliance with the principles of ethical behaviour and good conduct, by using competitive processes for obtaining goods and services.

In order to be considered for a particular opportunity, you need to fill in the information requested in the RFP form and submit it to the address indicated before the closing date.

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is seeking a research agency to annually assess the results of the Workforce Nutrition Programme against Key Performance Indicators. 

GAIN together with the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP) will deliver WFN projects in Kenya, India (Assam), and Malawi tea growing communities and/or estates to improve both access to and demand for nutritious safe foods for tea workers and farmers. This programme will reach an estimated 175,000 tea workers and smallholder farmers with interventions addressing demand for and access to nutritious foods.

As the project is operating in three countries the research partner can respond to this proposal to engage with either one, several, or all country projects. GAIN will prefer one research partner to assess all three programme locations. Experience in one country is necessary and identification of local research partners where the agency is not based would be essential.

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is seeking to engage services of a Service Provider to conduct training on the new standard for Laboratory competence (ISO/IEC 17025:2017) to selected Fortified food product testing laboratories.

One of GAIN's programmes in Ethiopia is  Food Fortification. Fortification is one of the key strategies endorsed by the Government of Ethiopia to reduce micronutrient deficiencies. As part of fortification programme GAIN also provides support for strengthening the capacity of the laboratories.

Laboratory testing is an important function for both quality and regulatory monitoring of foods. Food testing relies upon scientific principles to determine the nutritional content and other quality and safety parameters against the standard. It provides analytical data on the quality and safety of fortified foods and their production processes to support regulatory and quality monitoring. This in turn supports the supply of quality, safe foods in the country.

GAIN launched the Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition in Nigeria (PLAN Nigeria) programme in 2016.

The objective of PLAN Nigeria is to reduce postharvest loss in the domestic tomato supply chain, with a portfolio of activities aimed at increasing the adoption of reusable plastic crates, cold chain, and processing technologies as well as improved postharvest management practices.

PLAN Nigeria has brought to Nigeria three technologies that did not exist there previously: plastic crates for distributors to transport fresh fruit and vegetables (FFV) to market; refrigerated transport for the same; and cold rooms for FFV producers to keep FFV fresh until it is ready to transport to market. All three models had capital outlays subsidised by GAIN. It is not clear whether these innovations are commercially viable within the context - with or without a subsidy. 

In order to make clear recommendations for future programming and policy initiatives, GAIN seeks to understand the financial aspects of adoption and use of these innovations.
