FRAMEWORK CONTRACTS

ORGUT provides services to Sida, EU and DFID through framework contracts in a wide range of practices such as market development, business enabling, agricultural development, forest governance, environment and climate change as well as in human rights and gender equality.

Services under the framework contracts often arise with very short notice and ORGUT has therefore set-up a structure with high responsiveness and efficiency. Through a large network of consultants and organisations and by knowing all the requirements, policies and procedures, ORGUT is able to swiftly provide our clients with the required specific technical, methodological and geographical expertise. ORGUT staff assists in the whole process, from identifying the right expertise to delivering services of highest quality, including all backstopping, quality assurance, and management needed.

For Sida, ORGUT leads the Framework Contract in Agriculture, Forestry and Environment, as well as is a consortium partner in the Framework Contract in Market Development and in Human Rights. During 2013, ORGUT was awarded a new contract with Sida to provide services and advice within development finance. Through the agreement, Sida can draw on ORGUT’s expertise in the legal, financial and economic aspects of development finance. ORGUT is also available to provide services in Sida’s Helpdesk for Environment and Climate Change, which supports Sida staff in integrating environmental perspectives into development cooperation.

During 2013, ORGUT was awarded, as a consortium partner to Agriconsulting, the contract for the EU Lot 1 Rural Development and Food Security with a global coverage including the fields of agriculture, forestry, land management, rural infrastructure, food safety and security.
