Assessment of the
Concept Note / Full Proposal
• Structured procedure applying standard Evaluation grid, part of the
"Guidelines for grant applicants" (Concept note evaluation grid p. 20,
full proposal evaluation grid pp. 21-22)
• At least two independent assessments per Concept note/Full
proposal
• Call for proposal = Competition !
Assessment of the
Concept Note
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Relevance of the Action
1.1 How relevant is the proposal to the objectives and priorities
of the Call for Proposals? (maximum scores 10)
• Proposal must meet both with global and with specific objectives
(including local thematic priorities) of the Call
• Is it better to address to one or several local thematic priorities?
(Lot 1)
• Preferred thematic priorities / earmarked funds?
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Relevance of the Action (max scores 10)
1.2 How relevant to the particular needs and constraints of the
target country(ies) or region(s) is the proposal (including
synergy with other EU initiatives and avoidance of duplication)?
(maximum scores 10)
• Am I adding too many facts and overwhelming assessors?
• Am I adding too little facts and assuming assessors knowing
basics already?
• In the name of equal treatment all elements for assessments are
taken from the text.
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Relevance of the Action (max scores 10)
1.3 How clearly defined and strategically chosen are those
involved (final beneficiaries, target groups)? Have their needs
been clearly defined and does the proposal address them
appropriately? (maximum scores 5)
• Quantity, geographical location, names… whatever possible at
this stage (NB. no changes possible afterwards!).
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Relevance of the Action (1/2)
1.4 Does the proposal contain specific added-value elements,
such as environmental issues, promotion of gender equality
and equal opportunities, needs of disabled people, rights of
minorities and rights of indigenous peoples, or innovation and
best practices and other added value elements indicated under
1.2. of these Guidelines? (maximum scores 5)
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Relevance of the Action (2/2)
Chapter 1.2. adds the following added-value elements:
- promote access to rights amongst vulnerable and marginalised groups;
- implement piloting and innovative initiatives and best practises with the potential of replication
on a greater scale;
- implement sub-granting scheme that targets small organisations without financial and/or
operational capacity to seek funding from the EU, preferably outside the capital area;
- encourage different types of partnership between more and less experienced entities to
facilitate capacity spin-offs;
- Strengthen CSOs' intervention in the dialogue process with local and national authorities.
Quite a mouthful but please keep in mind….
•
•
Text and chapter that summarizes alignment with added-value elements must be coherent!
“Right to the point” approach scores highest (2-3 well targeted added-value elements would
provide full scores)
Assessment of the Concept Note:
Design of the Action
2.1 How coherent is the overall design of the action? (maximum
scores 10)
• Drafting Logframe already at this stage (although officially not yet
required) will help you to elaborate this point
2.2 Is the action feasible and consistent in relation to the
objectives and expected results? (maximum scores 10)
• If objectives and expected results are modest, all the other elements
may be so too (budget must be adjusted to this strategic choice too),
and other way around.
Conclusions of the Concept note
assessment
•
ASSESSMENT - only the Concept Notes with a minimum total score of 30
(out of 50) points will be considered further;
•
RANKING - the list of Concept Notes will be reduced, taking account of the
ranking, to the number of Concept Notes whose total aggregate amount of
requested contributions is equal to at least 200% (Lot 1) or 300% (Lot 2) of
the available budget for this Call for Proposals;
•
INFORMATION - The pre-selected Applicants will subsequently be invited
to submit Full Application Form. The eliminated applicants will also be
informed.
Assessment of the Full proposal
• Concept note assessment and Full proposal assessment are
two separate exercises –> please repeat the main elements
of the proposal!
• In the name of fair competition, the main operational elements
(objectives, activities, target groups, location etc) outlined in
the Concept Note must NOT be modified in the full proposal.
• The amount (€) requested from EU may not vary by more
than 20 %
Assessment of the Full proposal
Assessment of the Full proposal:
Financial and Operational Capacity
(maximum total scores of the section = 20 )
• Chapters 2.1.7 – 2.1.8 and 2.3 of the Application form crucial
to the evaluation – assessor does not have "memory traces"
about previous projects
• 1.1. – 1.3 concern applicant, co-applicants and affiliates
• 1.4. concerns applicant only
• If total score is less than 12 points or if at least for one
subsection score is 1, application will be rejected.
Assessment of the Full proposal:
Relevance of the action
(maximum total scores of the section = 30 )
• Scores transferred from the Concept Note evaluation
grid (total of the chapter “relevance” ie points 1.1 – 1.4),
max 30 points.
• As no new assessment on relevance - > main elements
(objectives, activities, target groups, location etc) must
remain the same.
Assessment of the Full proposal:
Effectiveness and feasibility (1/2)
(maximum total scores of the section = 20 )
3.1. Are the activities proposed appropriate, practical, and
consistent with the objectives and expected results?
• The same as 2.2. of Concept Note
3.2. Is the action plan clear and feasible?
• Must be detailed enough, as per activity and per
implementing organisations
Assessment of the Full proposal:
Effectiveness and feasibility (2/2)
3.3. Does the proposal contain objectively verifiable indicators for the
outcome of the action? Is any evaluation planned?
•
•
OVIs from Logframe

satisfactory?
•
See comment to CN 2.2. and FA 3.1 -> If objectives and expected results
are modest, all the other elements may be so too (budget must be adjusted
to this strategic choice too).
Conclusions of the Full proposal
assessment
