● Unrestricted (i.e., open to any type of entity above), subject to any clarification in text field entitled “Additional Information on Eligibility”.
● Public, private, for-profit, and non-profit organizations, as well as institutions of higher education, public international organizations, non-governmental organizations, U.S. and non-U.S. governmental organizations, and international donor organizations are eligible under this BAA, unless otherwise stated in the individual Addendum.
● All organizations must be determined to be responsive to the BAA and sufficiently responsible to perform or participate in the final award type.
1. Expression of Interest: Potential partners will submit an Expression of Interest in response to a BAA Addendum. Expressions of Interest are generally short (2-5 pages) and contain information as outlined in the BAA Addendum, such as the talent team offered for collaboration; the capacity, capability, and experience of the proposed partner organization; any partner/resource relationships; and proposed resource contributions. USAID will assess each Expression of Interest against the specific partner goals and criteria listed in the relevant Addendum and select the partner(s) best suited for collaboration. Note that the U.S. Government may reach out to potential partners requesting an Expression of Interest.
2. Development of the Concept Paper: For Expressions of Interest that USAID deems to have merit, USAID will invite the potential partner(s) to collaborate. Working together, USAID and the potential partner(s) will produce a Concept Paper. During this phase of co-creation the parties will establish the problem statement based on the Research Area of Interest, a viable solution, general resource requirements, and partnership contributions (resources and comparative advantages) to the solution. The Concept Paper, generally no more than 10 pages, will explain the project as envisioned by the Co-Creation Team.

How to apply:
● Proposals/Applications: USAID will work with partners to co-design the activity and, when applicable, collaborate with the partners to prepare a proposal or application. Full proposals/applications are generally 30- 60 pages in length and describe in more detail the potential partner’s implementation, resource partners, capacity, management and organizational structure, past performance and budget, as well as representations and certifications. However, the length and content of the proposal/application depends greatly on the nature of the partnership and the type of mechanism.
● Additional Partners/Resources: During co-creation and co-design, the Co- Creation/Co-Design Team may identify additional partners and resources, as well as determine whether additional mechanisms are necessary to implement the project. Any addition of a new partner to the Co-Creation or Co-Design Team requires the approval of the Contracting/Agreement Officer.
