4.1.1 Why is selection so important?
A partner selection process should be objective, transparent and fair. The main reasons for having a proper selection process in place are to:
- Identify the best matching partner and avoid unsuitable partners
- Getting to know potential partners and understand strengths and weaknesses
- Identify potential financial, reputational or security risks for CARE
- Ensure all potential partners have a fair chance and the process is transparent
- Comply with donor and CO rules for procurement or selection of sub-grantees.
