Description: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to seek participants to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate to identify new and innovative solutions to address the challenge of how to most effectively expand access to financing on terms and conditions (lower interest rates and longer tenors) that will allow for capital investment and facilitate trade. USAID invites organizations and companies to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). This BAA and any subsequent Addenda will allow co-creation and co-design to the maximum extent to create high-quality, effective partnerships with great efficiency in time and resources. USAID will invite selected organizations, as detailed below, to co-create Research and Development (R&D) solutions to the Problem and Challenge Statement, including those organizations that have ideas, expertise, resources, and/or funding to add to potential solutions. Co-Investing – USAID seeks to align goals with partners under this BAA to facilitate shared responsibility, shared risk, and shared resourcing. Shared resourcing requires that cash and other resources, both tangible and intangible, such as in-kind contributions, expertise, intellectual property, brand value, high-value coordination, and access to key people, places, and information, are directed towards reaching the solution to the Problem/Challenge. Co-investing does not require equal shared resources (such as 1:1 leverage), but rather resource contributions that are appropriate to the specific project’s objectives, considering the comparative advantages brought by the participation of each party. A. Federal Agency Name: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) B. Opportunity Title: Mobilizing Financing for Agriculture C. Announcement Type: Broad Agency Announcement The current call for EOI’s under this BAA must address the Problem and Challenge Statement cited in the BAA.

Future addenda may be issued separately with additional requirements for evaluation and administrative information, such as requirements for expressions of interest, concept papers, and response deadlines. The terms of the BAA will apply to each Addendum. D. Opportunity Number: 72064119R00001 E. Authority: Authority: This BAA is issued under Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Part 35.016 (c).
