Analytical Services IV (ASIV)

Navanti secured a seat on Analytical Services IV (ASIV) IDIQ. It is an Agency-wide $70 million indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract. The purpose of the IDIQ is to provide the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance’s Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights and Governance (DCHA/DRG) with the experts, resources, and analytical tools to respond to requests for democracy, human rights and governance (DRG) Assessments, DRG sub-sectoral, and related assessments or analysis; technical assistance to support DRG strategic planning, program design, and results management; research, special studies, and surveys; training and networking support; and rapid response transitional environment support. Analytical services under this IDIQ will improve USAID’s ability to promote resilient, democratic societies, and support U.S foreign policy objectives. Support for democracy, human rights and governance is vital to the pursuit of freedom and national security, and is essential to achieve the Agency’s and the U.S. Government’s broader social and economic development goals.

Specifically, units can use ASIV to:

DRG assessments, applied political economy analyses, sub-sectoral and technical assessments or analyses;

DRG strategy development and support for strategic planning;

Program design and results management support;

Research, special studies and surveys;

Training development and delivery, and professional networking; and

DRG rapid response analytical and technical assistance support for transitional environments.

USAID operating units will be able to draw upon the IDIQ’s analytical services to ensure that DRG sector and sub-sector strategies, planning and decision making, programs, performance management plans, and monitoring and evaluation plans are based on in- depth, well-informed, gender sensitive assessments and analyses; research; valid data; expertise and best practices in the field of democracy, human rights, and governance. The IDIQ will also provide expertise to operating units seeking to apply PEA across sectors, such as health, agriculture, education, and biodiversity, in order to encourage integrated programming and improved governance in those and other sectors. The analytical workperformed under the IDIQ will strengthen DRG outcomes across USAID’s fieldmissions, including in complex, transitioning, and post-conflict environments. The analytical work performed under the IDIQ will also integrate the principles of ADS 205 on Integrating Gender Equality and Female Empowerment in USAID’s Program Cycle.This IDIQ also gives DCHA/DRG a degree of technical oversight and engagement with analytical activities undertaken in the field.
