About the Forecast

The Business Forecast is an informational resource on potential funding and partnership opportunities at USAID. Included on the Forecast are the following types of activities:

  • Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA),
  • Broad Agency Announcement (BAA),
  • Contract,
  • Cooperative Agreement,
  • Development Innovation Accelerator (DIA),
  • Fixed Amount Award (FAA),
  • General Services Administration (GSA) BPA,
  • Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract,
  • Leader with Associate (LWA),
  • Personal Services Contractor (PSC),
  • Purchase Order,
  • Task Orders issued under IDIQs and GSA Schedules,
  • Activities that are To Be Determined (TBD).

Organizations interested in working with USAID can use this Forecast to plan for proposal or application submissions. This tool can also be used to engage early in the procurement process, to encourage the creation of new partnerships, and to provide maximum opportunities for small business set-asides.

It is important to note that because the Business Forecast is issued while activities are in the design and planning phase, information is subject to change.

For the latest solicitations, please visit FedBizOpps.gov and Grants.gov.

Important Notes on the Business Forecast:

  1. The Washington Business Forecast differs from the Mission Business Forecasts for purposes of new Small Business Administration (SBA) compliance requirements. Please note that some columns denote “Contracts Only” for SBA reporting in the Washington Business Forecast.
  2. Most IDIQ type awards listed have small business prime and subcontracting opportunities. Small businesses are encouraged to consider these solicitations for future business with USAID.
  3. The Agency Business Forecast aims to include opportunities that are open for bids/proposals and future opportunities that may not have a solicitation issued yet. Where there are blanks or TBD, information is pending.
  4. If you no longer see a contracting opportunity provided in our previous Agency Business Forecast postings, see https://www.fbo.gov/ and select “award notices” for type and identify “Agency for International Development” and click search. To find a cancellation go to https://www.fbo.gov/ and select “modification, amendment, cancel” notices to find any solicitation amendments or cancellations. You may also conduct advance searches to find specific solicitations.
  5. You may reach the points of contacts (email preferred) in the Agency Business Forecast by searching the name at the USAID Staff Directory
