Additional Information on Eligibility
There are no restrictions on eligibility for the Request for Application. Qualified applicants may be any U.S. or non-U.S. organization, non-profit, or for-profit entity. Faith-based and community organizations that fit the criteria of the RFA are also eligible to apply. In support of the Agency‘s interest in fostering a larger assistance base and expanding the number and sustainability of development partners, USAID/OFDA welcomes applications from potential new implementing partners, which have not previously received financial assistance from USAID. When considering making an award to an organization with limited or no previous USAID experience, USAID might determine to conduct a Pre-award Risk Assessment, which is a risk assessment to determine the organization's capabilities to complete the proposed activities. For Non-U.S. Organization Pre-award Survey Guidelines and Support is available in the following link: http://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/documents/1868/303sam.pdf. Applicants must have established financial management, monitoring and evaluation processes, internal control systems, and policies and procedures that comply with established U.S. Government standards, laws, and regulations. The apparently successful Applicant(s) will be subject to a Pre-award Risk Assessment by the Agreement Officer. The Recipient must be a responsible entity. The Agreement Officer may determine a Pre-award Risk Assessment is required to conduct an examination that will determine whether the prospective Recipient has the necessary organization, experience, accounting and operational controls, and technical skills - or ability to obtain them - in order to achieve the objectives of the program and comply with the terms and conditions of the Award.
