Who is involved?

IMC Worldwide and our global network of partner organisations and consultants have provided call-down and knowledge management services to DFID and other donor organisations for over 10 years.

Under these frameworks we have delivered assignments in the areas of infrastructure, livelihoods, private sector development, climate and environment and social and gender in developing countries worldwide.

Our consortium, made up of over 70 partners, includes some of the most respected names in international development and provides a powerful mix of regional and national expertise.

Access to this pool of international consulting firms, NGOS and research institutions, coupled with our close links to high-calibre independent consultants – including some of the world’s most-respected global development experts – will help us successfully complete any EACDS Lot C framework call-down assignment and ensure that the outputs are of the highest quality.

The IMC consortium will provide a rapid response from request to mobilisation in as little as two weeks.

We will propose a number of skilled experts, ready to respond to requests on topics ranging from Applied Economics; Trade and FDI; Private Sector Development Instruments and Approaches; to Inclusive Growth; Infrastructure for Economic Growth and Prosperity; and Agriculture.

Our quality procedures will guide the delivery of each call- down request received through EACDS, ensuring that the technical assistance we mobilise is of excellent quality, will deliver credible Value for Money and will achieve maximum impact.

We have drawn on our extensive framework experience to design our approach to the management of EACDS Lot C.
