Strategic Partnerships for Capacity Development of Civil Society Organisations in the Eastern Partnership
This is a call for proposals to establish Strategic Partnerships, understood as a long-term cooperation mechanism through Financial Framework Partnership Agreements and grants to co-finance their implementation. The establishment of a Financial Framework Partnership Agreement does not guarantee the allocation of a grant.
This is an open call for proposals, where all documents are submitted together (Framework Partnership application forms and specific grant application). In the first instance, only the Framework Partnership applications will be evaluated. An eligibility check will be performed for each FFPA application. Eligibility will be checked on the basis of the supporting documents requested by the Contracting Authority and the signed ‘Declaration by the Applicant’ sent together with the application. Only Framework Partnership Applications from Applicants having passed the eligibility check will be evaluated. Thereafter, the lead applicants who have been selected will sign a Financial Framework Partnership Agreement, and their specific grant applications will be evaluated. The successful grant applications will then result in the signature of Specific Grant Agreements.
At a later stage, additional grants may be awarded, for which eligibility would be restricted to organisations having signed an FFPA with the EU under the present call. The procedure for awarding specific grants within the FFPA is specified in the Financial Framework Partnership Agreement template.
To apply for this call for proposals, lead applicants need to:
I. Provide information about the organisations involved in the action. Please note that the registration of this data in PADOR is obligator or all lead applicants and affiliated entitiy(ies).
PADOR is an on-line database in which organisations register and update information concerning their entity. Organisations registered in PADOR get a unique ID (EuropeAid ID), which they must mention in their application. PADOR is accessible via the website: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/pador_en.

Applications must be submitted in accordance with the instructions on the Framework Partnership application and the Specific Grant applications in the application form annexed to these guidelines (Annex A).
· Framework Partnership Application (Annex A.1)
Applicants must attach the complete strategic plan of the organisation to their application form. This plan may be an internal document of the organisation, as endorsed by its governing body. The applicant may submit this plan in its original form (following no specific template), but must clearly identify in the application for the framework partnership which parts of this strategic plan they consider to be relevant for a partnership with the European Union, which should be based on common political objectives shared with the EU as detailed in section 1.2 of these Guidelines. If the applicant is selected as a Framework Partner, the strategic plan will become part of Annex I (“Action Plan”) of the Framework Partnership Agreement.
· Specific Grant application (Annex A.2)
In the Specific Grant Application, applicants must provide a detailed budget for the proposed action. The budget must contain the contribution requested from the Contracting Authority and the percentage of that contribution in relation to the total amount of the grant, which must fall between the minimum and maximum amount and respect the percentages of co-financing, as laid down in these Guidelines in section 1.3. Own contributions by the applicants can be replaced by other donors' contributions at any time.
