INVITATION TO TENDER:
EVALUATION OF THE DRUG RELATED INTIMIDATION INITIATIVE

INTRODUCTION

Ana Liffey Drug Project, supported by the Dublin North East Inner City
Programme (DNEICP), invites tenders from suitably qualified
individuals/organisations to carry out an evaluation of the work of
the Drug Related Intimidation Initiative (DRII). Applicants should
have an understanding of the issue of drug related intimidation, as
well as a track record of evaluating community based projects.

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

Drug-related intimidation is recognised as a significant issue in
Ireland. In the context of the broader DNEICP, the subgroup on Crime
and Drugs has a specific mandate in relation to Drugs Related
Intimidation (DRI). In **Apply on the website**, the DNEICP issued a
tender for a project to work on the issue of drug related intimidation
in the context of Dublin’s North East Inner City. Ana Liffey Drug
Project was the successful tenderer and the Drug-Related Intimidation
Initiative was established in September **Apply on the website**, with
an initial project timeline of one year, set to conclude at the end of
August **Apply on the website**. The project has 1.5 FTE staff plus
administrative supports. The DRII has two strands to its work. First,
it acts as a contact point for people in the community who are
experiencing drug related intimidation, and provides signposting and
advice services to this group of people. Second, the DRII is tasked
with carrying out a piece of research on DRI in the North East Inner
City (NEIC), and will deliver its final report in August **Apply on
the website**. The DRII is operated and managed by Ana Liffey Drug
Project, and supported by a Steering Group comprising senior
representatives from statutory and community stakeholders. As it
approaches the end of its first year of operation, Ana Liffey Drug
Project now seeks an independent external evaluation of the
project’s work.
