U.S. Department of State Awards ME&A Monitoring and Evaluation IDIQs

U.S. Department of State Awards ME&A Monitoring and Evaluation IDIQs

The U.S. Department of State awarded ME&A two Performance Management, Evaluation, and Learning Services (PMELS) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to provide performance monitoring, evaluation, and learning services to headquarters; regional, functional, and management bureaus; and overseas posts. They are multiple award IDIQs with two base years and two option years and an overall ceiling of $150 million.

ME&A’s two awards cover two functional areas: Civilian Security, Rights, and Stability along with Economics, Environment, Science, Technology, and Health. These two functional area contracts were reserved as small business set-asides. ME&A is certified as a Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Task orders under the two IDIQs will focus on:

  • Designing and implementing a variety of short- and long-term quantitative and qualitative evaluations
  • Supporting performance monitoring, including establishing monitoring methods, developing metrics, data collection and analysis, and data visualization
  • Developing performance management materials and work aids
  • Developing and providing training around the U.S. Department of States’ Managing for Results framework as well as supporting staff augmentation necessary to implement it
  • Providing general technical assistance, including consultation, advisory, and capacity-building services
  • Supporting development and implementation of deliverables under the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018

The PMELS IDIQ is a follow on to the U.S. Department of State Performance Management and Evaluation Services IDIQs awarded in 2017. ME&A was awarded two IDIQs under that procurement resulting in five task orders. ME&A’s recent data collection work in Ukraine and Moldova was under one of these IDIQs.
