The local partner may serve as a Prime Recipient of the Cooperative Agreement who engages, through a sub-agreement or sub-contract, other local, regional or international partners. A regional partner is one who is controlled and organized in a country in the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). An international partner is a non-local and non-regional partner controlled and organized in a country outside of SADC. Any individual non-local partner cannot be awarded as a sub-recipient more than 10% of the total US dollar value of the assistance award and non-local partners as a whole cannot be awarded as sub-recipients more than 25% of the total award’s US dollar value. A local partner may be an individual or sole proprietorship, an entity, or a joint venture or other arrangement. However, to be considered a local partner in the Republic of Namibia, the partner must meet the criteria under paragraph (1), (2), (3) or (4) below within that country: (1) an individual must be a citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident of and have his/her principal place of business in the Republic of Namibia, and a sole proprietorship must be owned by such an individual; or (2) a for profit entity (e.g., a corporation or partnership): (a) must be incorporated or legally organized under the laws of, and have its principal place of business in the Republic of Namibia; (b) must be at least 51% beneficially owned and controlled by individuals who are citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia, per sub-paragraph (2)(a), or by other corporations, partnerships or other arrangements that are local partners under this paragraph or paragraph (3) or (4); (c) at least 51% of the entity’s staff (senior, mid-level, support) must be citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia, per sub-paragraph (2)(a), and at least 51% of the entity’s senior staff (i.e., managerial and professional personnel) must be citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia; and (d) where an entity has a Board of Directors, at least 51% of the members of the Board must also be citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia; or (3) a not for profit entity (e.g. social welfare organization or trust): (a) must be legally organized and recognized under the laws of, and have its principal place of business in the Republic of Namibia; (b) must be at least 51% beneficially controlled by individuals who are citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia, per sub-paragraph (3)(a), or by entities that are local partners under this paragraph or paragraphs (2) or (4); and (c) at least 51% of the entity’s staff (senior, mid-level, support) must be citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia, per sub-paragraph (2)(a), and at least 51% of the entity’s senior staff (i.e., managerial and professional personnel) must be citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the Republic of Namibia; or (4) a joint venture, unincorporated association, consortium, or other arrangement in which at least 75% of the funding under the PEPFAR award is or will be provided to members who are local partners under the criteria in paragraphs (1), (2) or (3) above, and a local partner is designated as the managing member of the organization or arrangement.

However, ultim  Agency Name South Africa USAID-Pretoria Description The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Namibia program on behalf of the US Government (USG) will develop a new program activity to implement its HIV Care and Support (C&S) program. The overall goal of this new activity is to sustainably reduce the impact, transmission and spread of HIV through a comprehensive, sustainable, integrated community response that will result in improved access and utilization of C&S services across the continuum of care for children, adolescents and adults, targeting vulnerable, key and hard-to-reach populations. This will be achieved by establishing sustainable, efficient and effective delivery systems for integrated community-based C&S service through: • local private voluntary organizations (PVOs); • civil society organizations (CSOs), including non-governmental organizations (NGOs); and/or community-based organizations (CBOs) The new program will contribute to the USG Foreign Assistance Strategic Goal of “Investing in People (IIP)”, the President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) global objective of providing care to 12 million individuals, and the Government of the Republic of Namibia’s (GRN) National Strategic Framework (NSF), 2010/11 -2015/16 and the “smart integration” approach and other goals and objectives articulated in both the USG Namibia Global Health Initiative (GHI) and the Partnership Framework (PF). The local partner will implement the activities over three years at a total estimated cost of approximately US$ 9,000,000 (nine million dollars) for three years from on/about May 1, 2013 to April 30, 2016 subject to the availability of funds.  Link to Additional Information If you have difficulty accessing the full announcement electronically, please contact: Simon Seema
