The United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) U.S. Global Development Lab seeks a partner to develop a Research Technical Assistance Center (RTAC) to support scientific and research-based technical assistance needs for the Agency. The lead organization would address specific science, technology, innovation and entrepreneurial needs identified by USAID by leveraging their network of technical and research experts based at higher education institutions from both the United States and developing countries in which USAID works. The lead organization would maintain and grow their expert consultant network to address the diverse and shifting needs of USAID. Anticipated activities include: creation of evidence-to-action policy briefs, technical reports, strategic research agenda setting and research activity consultations, coordination of university-based researchers for expert panels or convenings, sector-focused trainings, and other short-term technical assistance or related technical assistance.
