The procurement is for evaluation of the Bats in Churches (BiC) project, which is running for 5 years (2019 to 2023). The evaluation of the BiC project will concentrate on three distinct strands:-
1. Scientific: The knowledge gained through surveys and the long-term impact of the measure to separate bats and congregations.
2. Engagement: The shift in perception in the different communities engaged with the project and the long-term impact of the engagement activities.
3. Heritage conservation: The impact of new cleaning techniques trialled through the project.
