CISE Director Mark Belcher Awarded Second BPA by USAID

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded CISE Director Mark Belcher a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to serve as a Senior Enterprise Development Specialist. This contract has a base year and two option years that run through September 2014.

In this role, Mr. Belcher will provide USAID on-demand technical advisory services to promote private sector competitiveness; strengthen value chains; reduce legal and regulatory burdens on business; and develop strategies to promote economic and social innovation. Fostering an enabling environment for business promotes private sector growth and job creation that helps alleviate poverty.

USAID is an independent federal government agency that represents United States foreign policy interests by working with other nations to improve living conditions for nearly 1.3 billion people in extreme poverty around the world. This is achieved through programs that support economic growth; agriculture and trade; global health; and democracy, conflict and humanitarian assistance.

Founded in September 2010 by Anne Marie Thurber and Mark Belcher, the Center for Innovation in Social Entrepreneurship (CISE) provides strategy and management consulting support to senior leaders in government, business, and civil society to promote lasting prosperity in developing countries worldwide.
