COFUND: Should the partner organisation not contributing to the funding also provide a letter of committment?

It is not mandatory for a partner organization who does not contribute to the funding to provide a letter of commitment. But if the applicant believes such a letter will strengthen their case in evaluation they may of course add such a letter.

Most questions about letters of commitment can be answered by considering their purpose. Fundamentally, they are an assurance to evaluators and the REA that if a beneficiary is relying on financial input from the hosts then this will be forthcoming. This is why they are compulsory in the case where the partner organization actually contributes to the funding.
