Quarter three of the United States Agency for International Development’s business forecast data provides the first real insight into what a USAID under a Trump administration may look like. Looking beyond the current budget cycle, forecast project changes made since the quarter two release were presented by USAID on Tuesday as part of their quarterly business forecast review call, along with a range of new measures USAID are making to open opportunities for businesses to better engage with the aid program.
Devex analyzed the new quarter of data to identify changes and trends since quarter two through our interactive Tableau visualization, which provides insights for current and potential aid program partners on projects expected to be available for tendering or grants.
