U.S. and Other Government Contracting Mechanisms
IESC implements economic growth programs under contracts and cooperative agreements, as both a prime contractor and a subcontractor. We are open to inquiries from organizations interested in subcontracting to IESC or organizations interested in having IESC on your team as a subcontractor. IESC has implemented programs with USAID, the U.S. State Department, USTDA, USDA, and foreign governments.
Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance
IESC is a lead member of the Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA), the world's largest independent consortium of economic growth organizations. Founded in 2004 through a USAID Leader with Associate (LWA) cooperative agreement, VEGA offers subgrant management services and a unique way for donors to develop innovative economic growth programs. VEGA's special LWA funding mechanism allows USAID Missions a fast and efficient way to reach its 23 member organizations.
United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA)
IESC is a prime contractor for the USTDA Indefinite Quantity Contract for Reverse Trade Missions, Conferences, Workshops, Training, and Outreach Activities.
IESC has been providing volunteer technical assistance to companies and organizations around the world since 1964. We assist companies and organizations under multifaceted and multi-year programs funded by our clients, including USAID, Millennium Challenge Corporation, foundations, and others. If you are interested in receiving volunteer technical assistance from IESC, we can provide such assistance through a larger program. If we do not have a program in your country, it will be necessary to establish such a program with funding from a client that supports such initiatives. To explore establishing a program in your country, please contact us.
For more than 50 years, IESC has helped to deliver profits, growth, and goodwill for a global network of businesses in emerging economies and often challenging environments. We work with companies to find solutions that meet their global needs through a practical approach that provides results and genuine value. Visit our corporate partnerships page.
