Prime contractor Development Alternatives, Inc. has won yet another large project from the U.S. Agency for International Development, this time to help improve food and economic security for rural Afghans.
The five-year Regional Development Program-North is a cost-plus-fixed-fee completion-type contract, which required DAI and other bidders to propose a fixed price to meet program objectives and deliver an end product. The proposed fee may be adjusted should the scope of work change.
The key personnel for this $78 million contract — or the positions considered to be essential to the work being performed — were identified as chief of party, deputy chief of party, value chain adviser, director of finance and compliance officer.
In addition to personnel and cost, USAID evaluated each bidding organization’s technical approach, key personnel and staffing plan, and contractor performance information.
