TENDERS are being invited by DEFRA to evaluate the performance of the Canal and River Trust. The tender notice is inviting suppliers for the evaluation of the performance of the Canal & River Trust Project, see: https://bidstats.uk/tenders/2021/W11/746914121
The aim to undertake a 'backward looking' socio-economic evaluation, to collect and synthesise evidence in order to answer the following questions:
1. Assess the trust's performance of its obligations arising under the Grant Agreement and other founding documentation.
2. What public benefits have the trust delivered?
3. Estimate the economic value of benefits.
4. Identify a baseline and variation from the baseline.
The evaluation will focus on the period from creation of the Trust in 2012 up to the current period 2020/21. The four months contract will be at a cost of between £80,000 and £150,000.
