Usaid Bilateral Agreements
“These agreements in the health sector; education; trade and investment; and science and technology reflect our strong and enduring partnership with the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation and our continued commitment to the economic and social inclusion of the Egyptian people,” said Sherry F. Carlin, Mission Director of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Egypt. Multi-stakeholder partnerships or initiatives may include bilateral and multilateral donor organizations, as well as civil society and private sector partners. Participating in effective multi-stakeholder partnerships allows us to leverage the comparative advantages – knowledge, expertise, resources and capacities – of all development actors, which is crucial to making developing countries and communities more resilient and self-sufficient. Cairo – Egypt and the United States, through the United States The Agency for International Development signed four amendments to the $59 million bilateral aid agreement on August 4. This assistance will support Egypt`s development priorities in the areas of health, higher education, trade, investment, science and technology. In line with Egypt`s Sustainable Development Strategy Vision 2030, the agreements promote inclusive and business-oriented development. Cooperation between USAID, bilateral and multilateral donors, and other aid organizations can take a variety of forms, including: To learn more about USAID`s work in Egypt, please visit www.usaid.gov/egypt and follow us on Facebook and Twitter at @USAIDEgypt. Once these steps are completed, USAID will award the award to the selected organization.
In most cases, the organization is invited to a post-award conference to discuss the project and review the terms of the award. In addition, throughout the implementation period, the organization may contact the representative of the contract or agreement manager (COR/AOR) designated in the procurement contract for technical advice. All questions relating to the award itself should be directed to the contract or agreement officer. USAID defines the expected results for various activities that can be funded through an A&A award. Organizations interested in working with us submit a proposal in response to a call that describes the program and explains how USAID will make its decision. Aid is the U.S. government`s financial support to an organization – through a grant or cooperation agreement – to help carry out a project that benefits the community and advances the goals of the U.S. Foreign Aid Act.
Your organization may be contacted by a Contract or Agreement Negotiation Officer (CO/AO) if your proposal or application is being reviewed for award. CO/WA will be the most important point of contact for your organization to do business with USAID. Build partnership platforms to find solutions that address important development challenges and promote self-reliance. Acquisition is the purchase of goods and services – through a contract – for the use or benefit of the Agency. Finally, the Science and Technology Agreement maintains the U.S. commitment to joint research between U.S. and Egyptian scientists. USAID`s work in this area addresses development challenges and fosters economic growth, with a focus on applied scientific research and technology commercialization. USAID conducts market research to explore different ways to achieve our development goals and gather information on local capacity, small business participation, and the feasibility of our expected needs.
One way to do this is through a request for information (RFI). For more information, see ADS 302. The health agreement builds on USAID`s longstanding support for Egypt`s health priorities through the Development Agency`s partnership with the Ministry of Health and Population. Together, the focus will be on improving healthy behaviours, improving the quality of health care and supporting the Egyptian government in policy and programme development by supporting research, monitoring and training in key areas such as voluntary family planning. Engagement on critical issues affecting U.S. national security As part of the review of the technical proposal, typical evaluation criteria are as follows: USAID is dedicated to protecting the integrity of our foreign aid efforts and taxpayer money entrusted through rewards. For more information, see the Compliance section of our website. The United States is working with other partners to address global development challenges. When we provide aid to a developing country or respond to a humanitarian crisis or natural disaster, we do so with countries such as the United Kingdom, Japan and Sweden; multilateral organizations such as the World Bank Group, other regional development banks and various United Nations agencies; and partner countries that can still receive assistance, such as India, South Africa and Indonesia. Through coordination and close cooperation with other partners, USAID improves the delivery, impact, and sustainability of development assistance, maximizing development results and promoting the path to self-reliance.
Coordinating messages and outreach to mobilize support Through the Higher Education Agreement, America supports Egypt`s priority in aligning graduates` skills with market needs. USAID`s work in this new agreement will also help increase the capacity of Egyptian higher education institutions to provide solutions to Egypt`s development challenges. To understand the challenges and the resources available to address them, USAID missions are developing a Comprehensive Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) with substantial contributions from partner governments, as well as industry, civil society, and development partners. From CDCS, we design projects and activities to create an acquisition and support (A&A) plan. In each call, USAID specifies the criteria it uses to make a purchase decision (including technical and cost/price factors) and specifies the relative importance of each factor. Implementation of joint programs through pooled funding agreements, parallel financing, or other mechanisms The Trade and Investment Agreement facilitates USAID`s ongoing partnership with the Egyptian government to create a business environment in which the private sector can grow and become more competitive. This partnership focuses in particular on promoting inclusion and sustainability for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises with a focus on small enterprises that specifically provide jobs for youth and women. If the organization is unable to reach an agreement with the officials mentioned above, contact our organization`s Ombudsman.
Expand existing programs to new regions or beneficiaries Bilateral and multilateral donors such as USAID and other development aid providers share decades of development knowledge and expertise, providing billions of dollars to promote self-reliance in developing countries. If USAID wishes to negotiate with your organization before deciding whether or not to receive a reward, your organization should inquire about our policies, which will be part of the contract or the award of support. Calls describe the requirement or program and explain how USAID evaluates submissions. They can take various forms, such as. B such as a Request for Proposals, a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), an Annual Program Statement (APS) or an Agency General Announcement (BAA). You can find them by:. . .
