The United States Government, represented by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Regional Contracting Office in Budapest, Hungary, intends to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) for USAID/Albania to solicit applications from qualified organizations interested in implementing the Democracy and Governance activity in Albania. USAID/Albania is undertaking an overhaul of its democracy portfolio, with the goals of streamlining its implementation while increasing its emphasis on fighting corruption. Corruption is a major impediment to democracy and governance in Albania; helping Albanians combat corruption has thus become an important U.S. policy objective. For its part, USAID/Albania has decided to place greater emphasis on anticorruption in its current strategy. Consequently, the Mission seeks expert technical assistance to promote more effective, transparent, accountable democratic governance in Albania. The RFA document describes objectives and results USAID seeks to achieve through this Request for Application, followed by an estimate of the effort required and other considerations. The current portfolio consists of several implementers, all working under separate instruments that not only require considerable management effort but also make it difficult to achieve an integrated approach to democracy objectives. This grant is one of three which will both reduce the number of management units in the portfolio and improve the focus on anti-corruption. The selected implementer(s) will work closely together to ensure that all parts of the portfolio reinforce each other at every opportunity.
