Important Notes on the Business Forecast:

  • The Agency's Business forecast is a look at USAID's planning for future funding opportunities. Specific funding opportunities, as well as details related to funding opportunities, are likely to change as USAID moves along the planning process. You should check the Forecast on a regular basis to ensure you have the most up to date information. 
  • Most indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) awards listed have small business prime and sub-contracting opportunities. Small businesses are encouraged to consider these solicitations.
  • The Business Forecast is updated daily with information pulled directly from the Agency’s Acquisition and Assistance (A&A) Plan, which is used by leadership, technical staff, program officers, and contracting and agreement officers to help track future actions.
  • If you have a question about a specific item on the Business Forecast, please email BusinessForecast@usaid. gov.
