Evaluation criteria

Only those proposals that gain the pre-set minimum points will be presented in the SC. The Technical Evaluation Team will give recommendations on how to improve project proposals which do not gain minimum points and the NCU TA may assist applicants on request to improve their project applications.

The EEP Central America and EEP Mekong have recently adopted new project Selection Criteria. In view of co-financing opportunites for the EEP and need for the overall harmonization of donor efforts, EEP Indonesia applies these criteria to the project selection in Indonesia (Tentative Partnership Project Evaluation Grid and the Selection Criteria produced based on the documentaion of EEP Mekong is given in Annex 3).

The criteria assess funding proposals for the following aspects:
  • Financial and operational capacity
    • Project management capacity, technical expertise, sources of finance
  • Relevance
    • How relevant is the proposal to the objectives and one or more of the priorities of the component (This could be specified in the call for proposals)?
    • How relevant to the particular needs and constraints of Indonesia or a province is the proposal? (Including avoidance of duplication and synergy with other initiatives)
    • How clearly defined and strategically chosen are those involved (final beneficiaries, target groups, intermediaries)?
    • Have the needs been clearly defined and does the proposal address them appropriately?
  • Methodology
    • Are the activities proposed appropriate, practical, and consistent with the objectives and expected results?
    • How coherent is the overall design of the action?
    • Is the partners' level of involvement and participation in the action satisfactory?
    • Does the proposal contain objectively verifiable indicators for the outcome of the action? Is the action plan clear and feasible?
  • Sustainability
    • Is the proposal likely to have multiplier effects?
    • Economic sustainability: what are the positive (and negative impacts) on the local and national economy?
    • Social and environmental sustainability
  • Budget and cost effectiveness
    • Is the ratio between the estimated costs and the expected results satisfactory?
Extra merits are given to the projects which enhance cooperation between the donor country and project developers and technology transfer.
