The purpose of this contract was to provide services for the Support for Economic Growth and Institutional Reform (SEGIR) project, specifically in the Global Business, Trade, and Investment (GBTI) sector. The IQC also allowed missions and bureaus to continue to engage in business, trade and investment work and related sector reform projects through a structured procurement process. It was aimed at building on initial SEGIR experience in addressing business, trade and investment constraints to economic growth in USAID-presence countries. The IQC was also intended to promote knowledge management and best practices by making available to USAID and its GBTI implementers all contract-related experience and reports. Finally, GBTI II focused on devising and implementing robust strategies to promote real economic growth, reduce poverty, graduate transitional countries from aid to trade, promote open competitive markets, develop the private sector, and mobilize private financing sources to supplement and eventually replace development assistance.
