On Jan. 2, 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded a contract to provide technical services under the Strengthening Advocacy and Civic Engagement Program in Nigeria to U.S.-based international development consulting firm Chemonics International Inc.

The contract is valued at approximately $20 million over a five-year period. It is a Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee completion-type contract, meaning Chemonics and other bidders were required to propose a fixed fee for meeting the program objectives and delivering an end product. The proposed fee may be adjusted as a result of changes in the work to be performed under the contract.
