Read on to here about the latest tender opportunity under EEDA's ESF Co-financing Plan 2007-11.

The project is titled 'Enterprising Communities - Evaluation ' and the Invitation to Tender (ITT) will invite submissions from organisations and consortia that can deliver this activity in the East of England.

The purpose of this assignment is to undertake a formative and summative evaluation of the recently contracted (and equally co-financed) 'Enterprising Communities' pilots and to facilitate sharing of good practice across the region.

The aim is to help EEDA and its partners learn from the pilots and from best practice elsewhere so that we can in future commission and implement enterprise coaching in the most effective way.

The tender will be available via the website (click on the 'Apply now' section) as of today and will close on 29th September 2009. The expected project start is early November 2009 and the activity will run until May 2011.
