On demand research support to the Development Policy and Finance team at the Gates Foundation

Project brief

OTT will design and deliver a service for the Development Policy and Finance team at the Gates Foundation. This service will:

  • Offer a quick response to new commissions for research and analysis;
  • Undertake ongoing monitoring and scanning of the issues that DPAF is interested in and maintain and nurture a relationship with relevant think tanks and their experts (and monitor their work);
  • Draw from a pool of skills and expertise when required; and
  • Reflect on and seek improvements to the service to ensure that feedback from the Foundation and lessons on the delivery model are rapidly incorporated.
