A new Denmark — Ghana Partnership Policy 2014 — 2018 has been agreed between the two countries. The long-standing cooperation between Ghana and Denmark is a unique platform for leveraging the new strategic partnership. The main thrust of the partnership policy is to strengthen cooperation based on shared the objectives of strengthened political cooperation, promotion of inclusive and green growth, economic diplomacy and increased commercial cooperation, and consolidation of results in development programmes.

SPSD III comprises two main development engagements that will be funded from the budget committed for SPSD III and two side engagements that are a carry-over from existing activities. The two main development engagements are the Business Advocacy Challenge Fund (BUSAC III) and the Skills Development Fund (SDF II).
This call for tender covers the Business Advocacy Challenge Fund (BUSAC III). BUSAC is a challenge fund providing support to advocacy initiatives aimed at improving the business climate in Ghana or targeting specific constraints faced by groups of business operators and associations. BUSAC III will also be tasked to directly support the business-enabling environment and the business reform processes by creating amongst others very active Private Public Dialogue Platforms.

Danida now wants to recruit an individual company or a consortium of international and a Ghanaian partner organisation (called a consultant) to administrate the programme of the Fund. The BUSAC Consultant will provide technical, managerial and administrative expertise required in order to achieve these results. Furthermore, the BUSAC Consultant is responsible for logistics related to the operation of the BUSAC Secretariat and the activities to be undertaken by this. The budget for BUSAC III for the 5-year period 2016-20 is approximately DKK 120 Mio.

To be selected for tender the company must have experience in Fund Management from working in the West African region, and preferably in Ghana. The Fund Manager will also have a reference from working with advocacy in a West African context. Finally BUSAC supports, among other things, ‘right based advocacy’ and the Fund Manager will be expected to be familiar with Danida's Human Right Based Approach (HRBA) and UN's Global Compact Principles.
