Uganda USAID-Kampala -- Democracy, Human Rights and Accountability APS

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development in Uganda (USAID/Uganda) seeks applications from non-profit and for-profit organizations to participate in USAID’s Uganda Democracy, Human Rights and Accountability (DRA) Annual Program Statement (APS).

The Uganda DRA APS is USAID/Uganda’s invitation to civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations, and other interested organizations to work with USAID as an Implementing Partner to determine how our respective interests and objectives align, and jointly identify and define problems, challenges, and opportunities that can most effectively be addressed by working together. The Uganda DRA APS also provides a process through which USAID and prospective partners can jointly examine and leverage our respective expertise, resources, and capabilities to scope, develop and implement effective solutions to the problems and identified challenges. These partnerships help achieve core objectives in ways that could not be done alone. By engaging with civil society and non-governmental organizations, USAID hopes to increase the reach, efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainable impact of development investments.

To foster sustainable and transformational development impact, the award process will entail extensive partnering and collaboration between USAID/Uganda and applicants from design to implementation. Awards will be co-designed. This means that USAID/Uganda will work hand-in-hand with applicants who have submitted promising concept papers to explore the best possible strategy for addressing identified problems.

An Applicant may submit only one concept paper as a prime or consortium partner per addenda. Applicants may submit a concept paper for more than one addendum. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact as early as possible.


Closing Date: March 28, 2024
