Jefferson Consulting Group has been awarded a five-year 64 million dollar Institutional Support Contract (ISC) by the U.S. Agency for International Development Bureau for Africa (USAID/AFR). The Research and Institutional Support Services Activity (RISSA) will support the core mandate and activities of USAID/AFR to advance and implement its strategic priorities in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
The RISSA contract is led by Jefferson and its partners, International Business & Technical Consultants (IBTCI), Stratitia, and 2c4 Technologies. With more than 30 years of experience providing institutional services and implementing more than 50 USAID ISCs with superior results, the team is well equipped to support USAID/AFR in its mission.
USAID/AFR works in partnership with African leaders and decision-makers to design, implement, and support development projects that address serious challenges in SSA. Tailoring programs to each country, USAID/AFR works to prevent conflict and violent extremism, support more accountable and democratic institutions, increase opportunities for economic advancement, provide access to and enable the delivery of health services, and more. The Jefferson team will support these objectives by enabling effective, rapid-response high-quality support to USAID/AFR, USAID Missions and partners in SSA, including U.S. Presidential initiatives such as Power Africa, YALI, and Prosper Africa.
“The work of USAID/AFR and its partners is critically important to fostering global security, prosperity, health, freedom, and democracy. We passionately believe that international development programs are a necessity to better the lives of so many. We are honored to be chosen by the world’s premier international development agency to support their mission,” said Jefferson CEO Janet Clement.
