New Partnerships Initiative from USAID announced. This will enable partner countries to plan, resource, and manage their own development through strengthened capacity and commitment—this is both the essence of the Journey to Self-Reliance and a key rationale for diversifying the USAID partner base.
The New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) will allow USAID to work with a more diverse range of partners and provide more entry points for organizations to work with the Agency. The principles behind NPI are outlined in the Agency’s first-ever Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Strategy.
Under NPI, USAID will engage new and underutilized partners through a series of solicitations designed to help countries be self-reliant and meet the needs of their people.
