Expression of Interest (EOI)


Skilled Capacity Development Service Providers

DEADLINE: JUNE 13, 2022, to LiberiaCSA_Submissions@dai.com


The USAID/Liberia Civil Society Activity (CSA) project, implemented by DAI Global LLC, is requesting expressions of interest from new local capacity development service providers, including academic institutions/universities, private sector consulting firms, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), firms offering ICT advisory services, and qualified independent consultants, interested in being placed on its official Service Provider Pool. Entities placed on the Service Provider Pool will have the opportunity to deliver their services to CSA partner organizations. CSA will prioritize service providers with active networks at the subnational level. Current members of the Capacity Development Service Providers of Liberia (CBDSPL) do not need to apply.


Scope of work

CSA is a five-year USAID-funded project designed to strengthen Liberians’ ability to advocate for policy reforms, policy implementation, and service delivery improvements through multi-stakeholder coalitions that build feedback loops among the GOL, CSOs, and citizens. In Objective 1, the activity will form issue-based coalitions around three thematic windows. Composed of diverse members, coalitions will analyze the most critical issues that can lead to feasible reforms, co-create advocacy strategies, and translate them into improved policy formation and implementation. Under Objective 2, coalitions will apply citizen engagement strategies and policy dialogue platforms to integrate citizens’ voices into advocacy agendas. Coalitions will close feedback loops by disseminating the results of their advocacy efforts to the broader community to encourage continued dialogue. Activities under Objectives 3 and 4 will ensure that coalition members’ achievements are sustainable by building their financial resilience and adaptive capacities and linking them to a pool of Liberian private sector service providers
