USAID Extends CISE Blanket Purchase Agreement for Program Development Services

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has exercised the first of two, one-year options extending its Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) for Program Development services awarded to CISE Director Mark Belcher in December 2011.

Under this contract, Mr. Belcher will provide USAID with on-demand technical advisory services on a wide range of program development and management servicses. These include needs assessments, development strategies, program design, implementation management support, impact evaluation, and others. Mr. Belcher's experience implementing USAID's Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD) framework for improving organizational performance is expected generate high demand under this BPA.

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.
