Q: Are CSOs from the left bank of Nistru eligible for partnership with UNICEF within this Call for Expression of Interest?

Q&A added on 27.03.2018
Q: In the application form, there is written: "The specific sources from which the status of each of the performance indicators can be ascertained. If any data source is a survey or a study which the implementing partner is planning to conduct for this programme, this should be planned and budgeted for in section 3 below (programme workplan and budget)." However I cannot find this section 3 with the programme workplan and budget.
A: Kindly disregard this passage for now. The launched generic Call for Expression of Interest is the first stage of a longer selection process and, basically, aims to identify potential agencies UNICEF is seeking to cooperate with in the next years. Once a pool of potential partners is created, specific Call of Expression of Interests will be launched, where the applying agencies will have to submit the respective Section #3 – Programme workplan and budget.
Q&A added on 28.03.2018
Q: Is there any budget limit for project proposals?
A: No, there are no budget limitations. However, please note that this generic Call of Expression of Interest (CEI) does not imply any budgetary data from the applicants. This will be required at later stages, when specific CEI are issued.
Q&A added on 03.04.2018
Q: How to fill in part III of the Attachment which asks for information usually provided in specific proposals (activities, budgets, etc.)? Would it be enough just to indicate the Result area?

Q: Should there be separate applications for each Result Area?
A: A maximum of 1 proposal may be submitted by the same CSO, covering minimum 1 and maximum 3 Result Areas per CSO applicant.
