MSI default 20140225122239 Resized WEBUSAID has awarded MSI three IQCs that help promote resilient democracies and communities worldwide. These contracting vehicles access our team’s expertise and knowledge to deliver the best results.

USAID awarded the PEACE IQC to MSI and several other firms to help implement projects dealing with conflict, state fragility and violent extremism. The PEACE IQC aims to promote the design and implementation of conflict-sensitive development programs for USAID’s Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation. We have brought together an impressive consortium of partner organisations that have specific expertise in the field of conflict management and mitigation. Our team offers USAID Missions and Bureaus access to exceptional analytical, training and program implementation.

USAID’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) selected MSI as one of the firms to help advance peace and democracy in countries that are in transition. The awarded Support Which Implement Fast Transitions (SWIFT) IQC is worth up to $2.5 billion over five years. SWIFT organisations deliver flexible short-term grants to location organizations to conflict-affected or transitional areas for OTI. We were awarded both regional SWIFT sub-IQCs which allows us to help USAID in Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Eurasia.

As a sub to Integra LLC, MSI has won the REPLACE IQC to address environmental and resource management issues. We will provide our expertise in policy analysis and change, M&E, conflict mitigation, anti-corruption, knowledge management, scaling up and communications, and more. REPLACE focuses on approaches to landscape and seascape management to build resilient communities while conserving the natural resource base.
