USAID-Funded Georgia Human and Institutional Capacity Development 2020 Activity (HICD 2020)
CLIENT: U.S. Agency for International Development Mission to Georgia
PRACTICE AREA: Human and Institutional Capacity Development
PARTNERS: Chemonics International and Performance Design Partners (PDP)
TIME PERIOD: 2015 to 2020
The objective of the Georgia Human and Institutional Capacity Development 2020 Activity (HICD 2020) was to achieve tangible improvements in the human and institutional capacity of USAID’s strategic partner organizations in Georgia including governmental, non-governmental, and for-profit entities.
Working with the Mission, ME&A helped to implement the USAID/Caucasus HICD model of the structured and integrated processes that aimed to identify fundamental causes of performance gaps in local partner organizations. Under HICD 2020, ME&A established performance monitoring systems to address these gaps in performance and to establish a cyclical process of continuous performance improvement. In addition, the ME&A team assisted the Mission staff in planning and coordinating HICD initiatives with selected local partner organizations and supported USAID’s implementing partners in training activities. The contract was managed locally through our office in Tbilisi, Georgia.
ME&A implemented the $7.3 million HICD 2020 task order contract under USAID’s Human and Institutional Development (HICDpro) IDIQ contract, which was awarded to ME&A in September 2015 and continued through November 2020.
