APPOINTMENT OF A SERVICE PROVIDER TO PROVIDE A TWO DAY GRANT PROPOSAL WRITING WORKSHOP TO HSRC RESEARCHERS
This document sets out the Terms of Reference (TOR) for the appointment of a service provider to provide a 2 day Grant Proposal Writing workshop to HSRC researchers.
The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) was established in 1968 as a statutory research council mandated to undertake and promote research in the human and
social sciences. It is recognised as a national Public Entity and is subject to the requirements of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), Act 1 of 1999,
in terms of financial and performance management and reporting.
The HSRC is accountable to the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa, to which it submits annual reports incorporating annual financial statements
and performance reports audited by the Auditor General of South Africa. The HSRC receives public funds to support its work, but it is not fully funded by government,
hence additional revenue is generated by responding to tenders and calls for proposals.
Nature of the Assignment
This 2-days workshop aims to provide HSRC research staff with a thorough overview of the entire grant proposal development. Emphasis must be placed on:
- Encouraging and supporting the researcher in the development of excellent grant proposals
- Offering practical training to researchers who are seeking external grant funding to support their research.
The hope is that participants will leave with a working knowledge of the grant writing process, how to develop a project budget, employ strategies to increase external funding
and how to nurture donor relationships. The workshop is planned for the Durban and Sweetwaters offices.
The number of delegates is 15 but it could change depending on the response we get.
Service providers that are based in other provinces must include all travelling costs in the pricing schedule.
