The International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) is an
independent, non-governmental organization providing professional
support to electoral democracy. IFES promotes democratic stability by
providing technical assistance and applying field-based research to the
electoral cycle worldwide to enhance citizen participation and
strengthen civil societies, governance and transparency.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to invite
prospective service providers to submit a proposal, quotations and
technical specifications for the development and the implementation of a
media outreach campaign to target perception-based barriers, as
identified by IFES focus group findings, that stigmatize female
politicians in Georgia, prevent women from seeking office, and deter
voters from and political parties from considering the benefits of
increased gender equity. The RFP provides service providers with the
relevant operational and performance requirements.
