CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: USAID Public-Private Partnerships
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invites interest from prospective partner organizations to form innovative Global Development Alliances (GDAs) that contribute in a significant manner to achievement of results for USAID‘s key initiatives while also contributing to the key interests of private-sector partners. The Agency is particularly interested in innovative approaches that can have a significant impact on a major development challenge. Alliance partners are expected to bring significant new resources, ideas, technologies, and/or partners to address significant development problems and challenges in countries where USAID is currently working. Successful proposals will bring at least a 1:1 resource leveraging to address Agency initiatives or other significant development challenges within USAID‘s manageable interest and will clearly articulate the unique value that the private sector brings to a particular development challenge or Agency initiative, such as helping to increase the scale, efficiency, effectiveness and/or sustainability of an initiative. Proposals which involve corporate resource partners that demonstrate a longer-term commitment to a GDA activity after USAID support ends will be seen as more competitive.
Deadline: September 30, 2011
