The CPA Small Branches Regional Initiative Fund is a reserve of funding established by the CPA Secretariat in 2019 with the aim of adding value to the operations of small jurisdictions.
The Fund seeks to address technical areas related to the functioning of small legislatures, prioritising initiatives delivered principally through a Clerk exchange. Examples of initiatives may include parliamentary practice and procedure, alleviating resource constraints and improving access to information.
The Fund for 2023 is 15,000 GBP, from which up to 3 Small Branches may claim up to 5,000 GBP each to support efforts toward improving the technical functioning of the legislature.
For the 2023 tendering period, we would like to receive bids by the close of business on Friday, 31st March 2023. Should the Regional Initiative Fund not be utilised accordingly, the Fund will be opened up once more to further bids any Branches that might be interested.
It should be noted that, though tasks involved in a project may go into 2024, all funds supported by the Regional Initiative Fund must be spent in 2023. It is also expected that the necessary approvals required within the Parliament submitting the proposal will have been received by the time the project's implementation starts this year.
