Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 100 National Chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.

Common to our National Chapters is the implementation of anti-corruption advocacy interventions that aim at enabling political and behaviour change. This work is often fast-paced, opportunistic and, in many contexts, risky. In addition, the nature of our work makes it challenging to assess its impact. Advocacy takes time and is complex. Not only does this make data collection challenging, but it also makes it difficult to attribute impact. Thus, monitoring and learning of our work is a challenge and NCs often lack the time, the structures and the skills to do so. Through the provision of tailored support to NCs, the Transparency International Secretariat (TI-S) aims to address this capacity gap.


As an alternative to instructor-led face-to-face trainings for capacity development in MEL sector, Transparency International Secretariat in Berlin is planning to develop and launch an e-learning course with the aim to develop the MEL capacities of the TI Movement.

Presently, TI-S is seeking a consultant or a consortium of consultants to:

1) Conceptualize and structure the e-learning course using existing TI MEL content resources (the form).

2) Devise and implement the right pedagogical mix (the approach).


In close cooperation with the TI-S MEL Unit, the consultant or team of consultants is expected to create 2-3 online training modules.   

This includes:

The online training modules should respond to the most relevant MEL capacity needs of National Chapters and TI-S advocacy and programme teams (including topics like Theory of Change, monitoring, evaluation, and reporting for advocacy projects/ programmes as well as monitoring through the TI Impact Matrix) allowing self-directed learning. The multi-lingual online modules (English, French, Spanish) will be made available to the National Chapters via NeoLMS platform.

All didactic materials are to be submitted in English, French, and Spanish, in electronic form, in accordance with the deadlines stipulated above. The consultant/ team of consultants is responsible for translation, editing and quality control of language. The TI Secretariat retains the sole rights with respect to all distribution, dissemination and publication of the deliverables.


The consultant / team of consultants is expected to work very closely with the TI-S MEL Unit. There will be check-in meetings throughout the process. TI-S will ensure the organisation of logistics associated with this review.



The Consultants should provide their estimated total fee as a lump sum or as standard daily or hourly rates, before any VAT or other charges.

Guidelines for handling overhead and travel expenses


Regular overhead expenses associated with the Consultants maintaining their place of business, such as rent, telephone, utilities or stationary, are included in the Consultant’s professional fee, except where explicitly agreed otherwise in the contract.


Travel and accommodation expenses will as far as possible, and where applicable, be recovered from the institutions and companies hosting events or using the outputs provided by the Consultant.

Where such cost recovery is not possible, all travel is subject to prior approval by TI-S staff responsible for the financial management of the Project or TI Budget Line that will support the costs of travel. TI shall not issue travel advances to the Consultants. For accommodation or travel by air, rail or coach, they will instead have to contact TI-S that will make travel arrangements on the Consultant’s behalf.

All travel booked by TI-S will include travel health and accident insurance with worldwide coverage and Economy class only; accommodation will aim to achieve best value for money up to a 4-star category.

Consultants shall be entitled to invoice TI-S only for local transportation and visa cost (if applicable).

Subsistence allowance (per diems) and expenses for individual meals cannot be claimed. These are part of Consultant’s business expenses.


The international fight against corruption needs your expertise, your skills and experience, and your passion for social justice. 

From our secretariat in Berlin and in more than 100 national chapters, Transparency International seeks professionals and volunteers with exceptional talent and commitment to join our efforts and make a contribution to a better world.
