MSH-Led Team Selected to Implement Technical Assistance and Support Contract (TASC 4)-Africa
A Management Sciences for Health-led team of global health organizations has been selected by USAID to implement the Technical Assistance and Support Contract (TASC 4)-Africa. TASC 4-Africa is one of USAID’s primary mechanisms to contribute to improvements in the health of people in sub-Saharan Africa, especially women, children, and other vulnerable populations. TASC 4-Africa will play a key role in USAID’s central initiatives, Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths (EPCMD) and Creating an AIDS-free Generation. As a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a $500 million ceiling, TASC 4-Africa enables USAID Missions and Bureaus to quickly and efficiently secure technical assistance to expand basic health services, strengthen health systems, and address global health concerns, such as HIV & AIDS and other infectious diseases. As an IDIQ holder, the MSH team is prequalified to bid on TASC 4-Africa opportunities.
MSH’s partners on the TASC 4-Africa IDIQ are: Amref Health Africa; BRAC; Development Media International; Health and Development Africa; Health Information Systems Programming; Groupe Issa; International Planned Parenthood Federation; International Rescue Committee; Land O’Lakes; LTL Strategies; Medic Mobile; Mothers2Mothers; Plan International USA; Population Council; and Tetra Tech International Development.
The MSH-led team of international and regional organizations provides USAID Missions and Bureaus with exceptional access to Africa-based experts, organizations, and networks committed to measureable impact and results. Our consortium is ready to offer cost-effective, rapid, and flexible support and customized services in the areas of health service delivery, health policy reform, community mobilization and behavior change, monitoring and evaluation, capacity building, and commodity systems management.
MSH has previously held and implemented task orders under the TASC 2 and TASC 3 IDIQ mechanisms. Through TASC 4-Africa, MSH and its partners will continue to provide services to USAID Missions and Bureaus, doing more of what works, building on existing platforms, innovating for results, and promoting country ownership of strategies and approaches.
