The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking proposals for the Creating Private Sector-Led Economic Opportunities for the Healthy, Well-Educated Population and Improved Water Security, Citizen-State Trust, and Participation of Women and Youth in Jordan.
Through this Addendum to the 2020-2022 Global Development Alliance (GDA) Annual Program Statement (APS) No. APS-OAA- 21-00001 (the GDA APS), USAID/Jordan is making a special call for the submission of Concepts that will advance the Development Objectives (DOs) and Intermediate Results (IRs) of the USAID/Jordan Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) 2020-2025.
The purpose of this Addendum is to further encourage and facilitate partnerships with Jordanian private sector firms and to establish and describe criteria for partnering with USAID/Jordan. USAID seeks to develop new and innovative public-private partnerships (GDAs) with the private sector1 that are based and built upon the complementary or overlapping interests and objectives of USAID and the private sector toward the achievement of the following Development Objectives (DOs):
DO1: Inclusive Private Sector-Led Growth
DO2: Jordan’s Ability to Improve its Water Security Strengthened
DO3: Equitable, Democratic Governance Strengthened
DO4: Human Potential Accelerated
DO5: Agency and Leadership of Women and Youth Enhanced
Award Ceiling: $2,000,000
Award Floor: $1,000,000
Proposed alliances will be evaluated based on the considerations. As stated in APS No. APS-OAA-21-00001, USAID expects to receive GDA concepts that mobilize and leverage private sector resources at a level and value that at least equals and preferably significantly exceeds the level of funding being requested from USAID. For purposes of this addendum, the value of private sector leverage generally should be at least twice as great as the level of funding requested from USAID.
Preference will be given to GDA concepts with private sector partners who demonstrate long term commitment to the targeted region.
