Additional Information on Eligibility:
The USAID/Malawi mission invites interest from prospective local and international partner organizations to form Global Development Alliances to carry out activities in support of USAID/Malawi’s development objectives.
USAID seeks to expand its use of more strategic alliances with the private and non-governmental sectors in order to further increase sustainable development impact and foster increased private sector-led growth in the developing world. We seek to increase the overall strategic value of our alliances for fostering sustainable development in the developing world.
The USAID/Malawi mission invites interest from prospective local and international partner organizations to form Global Development Alliances to carry out activities in support of USAID/Malawi’s development objectives. Alliance partners are expected to bring significant new resources, ideas, technologies, and/or partners to address development problems that USAID/Malawi is currently working to address. Successful applications will bring at least a 1:1 resource leveraging to priority development activities within USAID/Malawi’s strategic focus areas.
USAID/Malawi has cultivated more than 22 public-private alliances over the last 8 years with a combined public-private resource value of $140 million. Through our Global Development Alliances, USAID/Malawi can facilitate access to broader financing options, assist in skill and knowledge development, and apply its extensive knowledge in Malawi to help strengthen and complement private development resources. This solicitation is encouraging and creating the competitive environment for new alliances to be created in FY10.
