The Agency for International Development (USAID) encourages the submission of new and innovative ideas consistent with and contributing to the accomplishment of USAID’s objectives. Such opportunities are routinely announced through broad Agency announcements or specific Requests for Proposals (RFPs). When new or innovative ideas do not fall under topic areas publicized through those techniques, offerors may consider submitting them as unsolicited proposals. Note that the criteria for unsolicited proposals are quite stringent.
An unsolicited proposal is a written proposal for a new or innovative idea that is submitted on the initiative of the offeror for the purpose of obtaining a contract with the Government, and that is not in response to a request for proposals or any other Government-initiated solicitation or program. A valid unsolicited proposal must (1) be innovative and unique; (2) be independently originated and developed by the offeror; (3) be prepared without Government supervision, endorsement, direction, or direct Government involvement; (4) include sufficient detail to permit a determination that USAID support could be worthwhile and the proposed work could benefit USAID’s research and development or other responsibilities; (5) not be an advance proposal for a known USAID requirement that can be acquired by competitive methods; and (6) unsolicited proposals in response to a publicized general statement of Agency needs are considered to be independently originated.
Non-profit organisations and businesses are eligible.
Actions can take place worldwide where USAID operates.
Grant amounts depend on the project submitted and there are no minimum and maximum amounts.
