USAID/Sri Lanka is currently preparing a solicitation to advance peacebuilding, social cohesion and reconciliation in the country.
USAID will aim to positively transform relationships across traditional lines of division and foster the development of a common national identify among all Sri Lankans
by supporting institutions, processes and stakeholders at the national, sub-national and community levels.
As we design this new activity, we would welcome public input on the following questions:
1. What are examples of the most successful and unsuccessful peacebuilding and reconciliation activities in Sri Lanka to date and especially in recent years.
For each example, please provide information about the most important factors that contributed to the activity’s impact or lack thereof.
2. Who are the change agents in Sri Lankan society that have proven their interest, capacity and/or results in advancing peace and reconciliation at the sub-national and community levels? Answers could include but are not limited to individual leaders, demographic or common interest groups, organizations, and particular communities.
Please justify your responses.
Please limit your overall response to no more than two, standard, typed pages.
Responses regarding this Request for Information (RFI) are to be submitted in writing to:
Mr. Anuradha Pingama, Acquisition and Assistance Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any additional questions can be sent to the attention of Mr. Robert Parnell, Contracting Officer at email@example.com, by December 12, 2016 0800am (US Eastern Time).
Issuance of this RFI does not constitute any future commitment to the informants on the part of the US Government nor does it commit USAID to pay any costs incurred in gathering and submitting information.
