Request for proposals for "Enhancing the sustainability of the ReCAP Rural Access Library"
The Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) is a six-year programme of applied research and knowledge dissemination funded by a grant from the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID). The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community.
ReCAP's Capacity Building and Knowledge Management (KM) strategies focus on strengthening research uptake by practitioners through supporting the documentation, storing, accessing, publication and dissemination of ReCAP research. One of its strategic directions specifically aims at improving access to, and dissemination of, rural road and transport services evidence. To this purpose, a repository has been established on the ReCAP website containing all outputs of the current ReCAP programme as well as its preceding UKAid funded research programmes (AFCAP phase I and SEACAP). The repository, called the Rural Access Library, currently contains close to 1,000 knowledge items, ranging from technical reports to research papers, blog posts and newsletters, milestone reports, conference papers and presentations.
Key to the success of the Rural Access Library is that it is easily accessible and searchable by rural transport practitioners and others, taking into account the limitations of internet access in partner countries.
ReCAP, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is seeking proposals to undertake an assignment for enhancing the sustainability of the ReCAP Rural Access Library. This project's aim is have the repository up to international standards and to have all relevant information available for ReCAP to engage in negotiations with a potential future host of the Rural Access Library, hence paving the way for long-term quality, sustainability and transferability of the repository.
Interested parties can obtain the Request for Proposal document by sending an e-mail to with copy to , stating the project reference No.KMN2113A in the subject line.
Proposals must be received by no later than 26th February 2018 at 5PM, UK time. Proposals and all queries should be submitted directly to with copy to .
