USAID partners with organizations through an acquisition (contract) or assistance (grant or cooperative agreement) award, depending on the type of work, the purpose of the funding, and the nature of the relationship between the Agency and the implementing partner.
Awards for either acquisition or assistance awards typically include indicators and results, budget, and other terms and conditions applicable to the work performed under the award.
We expect our development partners to achieve high performance and partner with us to provide sustainable development solutions to beneficiaries in the countries we work in around the world.
See Our Process diagram for a comprehensive overview of the main steps in USAID's Acquisition & Assistance award process.

PEER's Special Call for Proposals: Vietnamese Biodiversity: Among other special focus areas, this 5th cycle of the PEER program includes a special call for proposals addressing biodiversity in Vietnam. While Vietnam is the priority, in cases where the research involves transboundary considerations, research teams are encouraged to look for collaborators in neighboring countries. Projects should also ensure that programmed activities involve and benefit both women and men and, when feasible, address the underlying, gender-based constraints present in biodiversity conservation.
