TERMS OF REFERENCE – VIDEO ON MISUSE OF PUBLIC PROPERTY

Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) is the local chapter of the global movement against corruption, committed to promoting good governance and eradicating corruption in Sri Lanka. TISL’s mission is to support the collective effort to eradicate corruption in order to build a future Sri Lanka which is equitable, peaceful and just.

Corruption in the form of misuse of public property has long been a major issue in Sri Lanka. However, public awareness of the laws relating to the misuse of public property remains minimal. This lack of awareness among the public including the youth, discourages meaningful engagement by citizens on monitoring and preventing such misuse. To address this need TISL is conducting a media campaign based on the complaints received regarding misuse of public property during the Parliamentary Elections of 2020 through the Ape Salli website (https://apesalli.ushahidi.io/views/map).

TISL is seeking the services of a production house to develop two 3 minute-long videos in the Sinhala and Tamil languages (with English subtitles). The videos will provide information on misuse of public property in the country.

The videos will include the following information –
1. What is corruption? (that the misuse of public property is a form of corruption)
2. Definition and how the misuse of public property can happen (video can include examples of misuse of public property during election and beyond)
3. How misuse of public property affects the integrity of the public service
4. Cost of misuse of public property – How it affects the economy and people
5. Actions that can be taken to reduce/eliminate the misuse of public property

Quotations should include:
• A relatable, creative, inspirational concept targeted at the public.
• Proposed call to action to stop misuse of public property. (This would be further developed with TISL’s input once the supplier is finalized)
• Samples of similar past campaigns
• Proposed cost within the stipulated budget for the crew.
• Ability to complete the activity within one month.

Deliverables: Two 3-minute videos (Sinhala & Tamil languages w/ English subtitles).

The indicative budget for this activity is Rs. 400,000-450,000.
The contract will be awarded on a VFM basis.

TISL will provide the required expertise wherever required or requested.
Proposals on the specifications, along with a detailed budget should be emailed to ashmi@tisrilanka.org by 22nd January, 2021. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to pitch their concept to TISL.
