Bangladesh AIDS Program: USAID/Bangladesh intends to award one Cooperative Agreement to implement The Bangladesh AIDS Program over a three year period. This new activity will be a follow-on to the IMPACT/FHI Program and will continue activities targeted to high risk groups. June 15, 2005 AMENDMENT NO. 3 TO REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS 388-05-002 BANGLADESH AIDS PROGRAM This Amendment to RFA No. 388-05-002 is being issued to: (a) revise the Program Description to two additional activities; (b) inform applicants that clauses implementing the U.S. Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Act of 2003 will be incorporated into the Cooperative Agreement and made part of the award; (c) provide the list of questions submitted by prospective applicants and USAIDs response to the questions. Accordingly, the RFA is hereby amended as follows: 1. On page 30, Section III Program Description of the RFA, is revised to incorporate and read: (i) IX. Outreach Activities The Implementing Organization will budget time and staff hours for outreach activities, such as participation in Annual America Week events held in various cities of Bangladesh, VIP visits to program sites in Bangladesh, and Population, Health and Nutrition (PHN) partner-donor retreats/meetings held in Bangladesh, etc. The budget should reflect approximately 27 person-days per year. (ii) X. Windows of Opportunity Given the epidemiological situation with HIV and the high-risk groups in Bangladesh, there may be a need to change/revise the programmatic implementation strategy and invest more efforts in certain areas. The program must be nimble and able to adapt to the evolving situation. A separate budget line item of 10% from the total budget must be set aside to cover both of these activities. USAID will advise the Implementing Organization on the use of this money; therefore, proposals should not contain plans for the programming of this 10%. 2. Pursuant to the requirement of USAID Acquisition & Assistance Policy Directive (AAPD) 05-04, dated June 9, 2005, clauses implementing the U.S. Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Act of 2003 will be incorporated into the Cooperative Agreement and made part of the award, as follows: 3. The following provides USAIDs answers and clarifications to questions received from prospective applicants in response to the RFA: Question No. 1: Please refer to the subject RFA for Bangladesh AIDS Program (Bangladesh 388-05-002). We have reviewed the RFA and found that there are several references regarding our existing HIV/AIDS Prevention Program in the RFA and it has been mentioned that the activities which we are currently implementing will also continue. For example, it is mentioned in the page 24 of RFA that "The bilaterally funded Social Marketing Company (SMC) is conducting a condom campaign for disease prevention which will continue." Our understanding regarding this issue is that the existing SMC program will continue under the ongoing financial support of NIPHP agreement (388-A-00-97-00033-00) till September 30, 2006. Answer No. 1: Correct. Question No. 2: While scaling up activities, can we increase the number of NGOs to be able to go to new areas? Answer No. 2: Yes, with prior Agreement Officer approval. Question No. 3: Can the project work in new districts with Drop-in-centers that are primarily funded by other projects? Answer No. 3: Question No. 4: Will the necessary commodities - condoms, female condoms, lubricants, STI medicines, ARVs, etc be made available or is the project supposed to include them? Answer No. 4: Question No. 5: Is the BSS survey included as one of the activities under this contract or will it be done separately? Answer No. 5: All other terms and conditions of the RFA remain unchanged and in full force and effect. - End of Amendment No. 3 -
