Project Description

USAID’s Central America Regional Support Services (CARSS) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, held by DI, is a seven-year, multi-award mechanism with an $800 million ceiling. It aims to provide USAID Regional and Bilateral Missions in Central and Latin America with flexible, streamlined, and integrated way to address the root causes of migration from Central America to the United States, particularly those related to economic opportunity, governance and transparency, climate change, crime, and insecurity. Under this mechanism, USAID can leverage DI’s evidence-based, context-specific, and behaviorally informed approaches to: 1) address economic insecurity and foster opportunities for economic growth; 2) strengthen democratic governance, reduce gender-based violence, promote respect for human rights and a free press, and address migration dynamics; 3) improve resilience to climate, food security, and health threats; and 4) strengthen the capacity of local partners and provide technical and management expertise to USAID Missions.
