Global consulting and digital services provider ICF has secured a new 5-year, $69 million task order from the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Resilience and Food Security.
The task order calls for ICF to support the collection and use of high-quality population-based survey data in various countries. It was awarded under the General Services Administration OASIS indefinite delivery, indefinite quality contract.
“We understand the nuances and complexities it takes to collect and analyze data and disseminate survey results for complex population-based surveys,” said Mark Lee, ICF executive vice president and public sector lead.
“We are proud to build on our long-standing work to help USAID strengthen and improve its data collection methods and share evidence of the impact of its programs, which will lead to a more holistic understanding of the well-being, food and water security, and resilience of communities around the globe,” he added.
ICF will use data collection tools, monitoring modalities and analysis to monitor progress toward sustainable reductions in hunger, poverty, malnutrition and water insecurity in countries around the world.
Data collected through these efforts will support monitoring and evaluation of important U.S. government strategies like the Multi-sectoral Nutrition Strategy, the Global Water Strategy and the Feed the Future Global Food Security Strategy.
