The Secretariat of AgResults (“Secretariat”) invites your organization to submit a proposal (“Proposal”) to provide project management services in accordance with this Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the AgResults Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) Advance Market Commitment Project (“Project”).
The Project is an advance market commitment project that is part of the AgResults initiative financed by the governments of Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. For more information about AgResults, please visit www.AgResults.org.
The Project is a six to eight-year, results driven, pay-for-results (PfR) mechanism project in East Africa (Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda) designed to encourage the development and uptake of an improved vaccine tailored for the needs and requirements of East Africa. The project will promote the development of an improved FMD vaccine, suitable for use in East Africa. This involves increasing vaccine production and regional purchases to create market stability while also encouraging the development of a private sector model for buying and distributing to complement public sector efforts. This is expected to produce potential increases in net income for smallholder farmers resulting from improved animal health.
Please note the deadline for receipt of proposal, with all required signatures, including a completed and signed Anticorruption Compliance Certification, is due no later than 1700 Hrs. US Eastern Time (US ET) on April 8, 2019. Proposal documents should be submitted in one email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate “FMD Project Manager RFP” in the subject line of the email. Other important timelines for this RFP can be found in Appendix 1 of the linked RFP.
