ACDI/VOCA was awarded a USDA Food for Progress project in Ethiopia, OGSM FCC-663-2017/030-00. As part of the award, ACDI/VOCA received 42,000 metric tons (MT) of Hard Red Winter wheat to monetize in Ethiopia to fund the project’s activities. ACDI/VOCA is seeking to engage a consulting firm (Contractor) to carry out a Post Monetization Assessment in Ethiopia to document the effects of the wheat monetization to determine whether the sale caused any adverse market impacts, including displacing commercial trade and discouraging local food production.
