Invitation to bid for Consultancy Services for the Development of ILGA’s new Strategic Plan


The Executive Board of ILGA invites bids from consultants to develop and produce ILGA’s next Strategic Plan (2019-2022).

For the period 2014-2018 ILGA has operated according to its strategic plan, which was produced by the ILGA Board in consultation with members and approved by ILGA's membership at the XXVII World Conference in Mexico City in November 2014. The Strategic Plan, which has guided the production of annual operational plans, will come to an end in December 2018. ILGA is now seeking to procure the services of a consultant to develop and produce a new draft strategic plan for the next four years.

The new strategic plan will be finalised by the ILGA Board in October 2018 and approved by the XXIX ILGA World Conference to be held in Wellington, Aotearoa/New Zealand in March 2019.
