All applications to the Outcomes Programme will be evaluated in 4 steps:
- Step 1: Initial Screening
- Step 2: Scoring
- Step 3: Clarification
- Step 4: Award
All bids will be initially screened to ensure they are complete compliant bids (Please see page 33 of the Outcomes Prospectus for further details).
For scoring, each Tender application form will be evaluated by a panel of evaluators who will score each of the 6 method statements on a scale from 5 excellent, to 0 unacceptable. Any bid which scores below a 2 for any question, or scores a cumulative quality score of below 42% on the 6 project questions will be disqualified.
Next, the evaluators will consider the budget template and make a value for money assessment.
The project quality scores and the value for money assessment will then be moderated by a panel and the total score for each project agreed and finalised. All bids will then be ranked within their specific Community Fund Programme (and by primary theme for those submitting to the Outcome Programme).
The community grants Programme will be evaluated in a broadly similar fashion but applicants will have to just fill in one e-form downloaded from https://www.croydon.gov.uk/community/advice/community-grants [the e-form will be available from early September].
The evaluation process for the Community Grants Programme will be undertaken three times a year by a single panel whom will review the submissions using the e-forms.
