Working as an associate for TripleLine Consulting, Tim Williams formed part of the team that assessed applications for the first round of submissions of DFID's first call of the  Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF) in February 2011. The process included:

  1. Double check there had been no errors in the initial data entry and eligibility check to ensure the Concept Note being appraised was eligible and that data was accurate.
  2. Appraise and score concept note 
  3. Contribute to lesson learning feedback for all applicants which was posted on the GPAF web site
  4. Identified areas of weakness to the rejected applicant organisations
  5. Provided general feedback to those invited to submit a full proposal
