Global Health Multi-Award IQCs
Welcome to the Web site for multi-award indefinite quantity contracts (IQCs) for USAID's Global Health Bureau. This site is meant to be a place where USAID Missions can access guidelines and supporting documents for developing task orders and scopes of work. Then, in turn, contractors can access these documents, plus resources to aid in their IQC participation.
At current, only the Health Policy Initiative (HPI), Project SEARCH, and Technical Assistance and Support Contract, Three (TASC3) IQCs are part of this Web site. Other Global Health multi-award IQCs will be transitioned into the site as time goes by. To view a list of all USAID global health projects (including single and multi-award IQCs), please go to the Fiscal Year 2008 Users' Guide to USAID/Washington Health Programs.
AIDS Support and Technical Resources

The AIDS Support and Technical Resources (AIDSTAR informally) mechanism is an IQC managed out of the Office of HIV/AIDS in USAID’s Bureau for Global Health. AIDSTAR is a flexible mechanism available to U.S. Government (USG) country teams, USAID/Washington operating units, Missions, and other USG agencies to access technical expertise and implementation support across a broad range of HIV/AIDS-related technical areas.
Health Policy Initiative (HPI)

The HPI project is designed to exercise global leadership and provide field-level programming in health policy development and implementation. Missions may award and manage their own task orders through this mechanism. IQC holders include Abt Associates Inc., Chemonics International, Futures Group International, and RTI International. HPI Task Order One supports core reproductive health/family planning, maternal health, and HIV/AIDS activities in policy dialogue and formulation and is also the mechanism designed to accept field support.
