Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) India – Ag Tech Challenge Broad Agency Announcement

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 on research and development interventions to address development challenges for food and nutrition security in Asia .



USAID invites organizations and companies to submit an Expression of Interest, as provided below.

The intent of the BAA is to 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 for-profit and non-profit, public and private organizations, as detailed below, to co-create Research and Development (R&D) solutions to the Problem and Challenge Statements stated in this BAA, including those organizations that have ideas, expertise, resources, and/or funding to add to potential solutions.

Co-Investing:
USAID wants to align goals with the 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.
