Social Impact (SI) solicits proposals for IT Management Services and is requesting proposals from qualified offerors. We are a Washington, DC-area global development management consulting firm. Our mission is help global development organizations and programs be more effective at improving people’s lives. The company fulfills this mandate through providing short-term management and evaluation services to client institutions and organizations all around the world and maintaining a long-term overseas presence in various country locations until the work is complete. IT support forms a key component of both operations.
