CPI emphasizes long-term relationships with civil society organizations that evolve to meet their needs and the needs of the communities they serve. CPI believes that robust capacity of civil society organizations can be supported by long-term partnerships and uninterrupted support.
CPI’s sustainable partnerships with civil society organizations are forged with discussion and understanding of the organization’s history, community-driven focus and commitment to service.
Key principles that drive CPI’s relationships with civil society organizations are:
CPI will act with integrity and sustain candid dialogue with all partners, particularly as the terms of Myanmar’s transition remain uncertain for local partners, especially those historically marginalized for political or other reasons.
CPI, together with local partners, has pushed for technical excellence, strength in programmatic management and achievement of donor standards. CPI will work with local partners to improve/build their capacities and capabilities in these areas.
CPI will continue to advocate for a substantial and appropriate role by civil society partners in supporting the health and social well-being of vulnerable communities.
Respect and professionalism in conduct is mutual between CPI and partners. We value enhanced transparency through cooperation and direct communication between CPI staff and partners.
CPI commits funds to local partners that allow a collaborative pursuit of innovative, technically sound, pilot approaches to addressing challenging problems that are often unaddressed by traditional donors.
CPI will endeavor to sustain a diverse base of partners working to address the more vulnerable populations, and under-served communities committed to community-driven approaches and/or who can benefit from CPI’s core competency in organizational development and support.

When implementing projects and activities, CPI chooses one of three implementation models depending on the operating context.
1. Partner Implementation: This is the preferred and long-standing model between CPI and its civil society partners where the partner directly implements services at the community level with support from CPI. CPI provides technical inputs, constructs the operational backbone and oversees the operation. CPI ensures the quality of the services provided by the partner at the community level. In particular, CPI trains the staff of the partner organization and they directly implement the activities. CPI provides sub-grants to the partner organization and day-to-day operational management at the community level is handled by the partner organization.
2. Mixed Implementation: In this implementation model, partner and CPI staff work together at the community level. This improves access to community-level activities and direct monitoring and enables CPI to work directly on strengthening the capacities of partner staff. This model is utilized in intensive projects that require sophisticated technical inputs and rigorous quality assurance.
3. Direct Implementation: Under urgent and unique circumstances, CPI will also consider the direct implementation model, which necessitates CPI to hire more staff and manage operational issues in the field. In this approach, CPI deploys its own staff to provide services.
CPI works with partners to shift the implementation model from Direct Implementation to Partner Implementation
