In May 2017, USAID awarded SI the Haiti Evaluation Survey Services (ESS) contract to conduct baseline, mid-term, and final Evaluations for a wide range of projects currently being implemented throughout the country, with more emphasis around USAID’s development corridors of Port-au-Prince, Saint Marc, and Cap-Haitian. The contract also includes sector assessments to inform the Mission in designing its new Strategic Framework (2018-2020).

The USAID ATTEINDRE/ATTAIN Activity in Haiti aims to provide targeted support to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) so that they become bankable enterprises, more competitive and sustainable through business expansion, job creation and integration to the wider market. The premise is that all ATTEINDRE activities will help businesses to generate sustainable income and improve resilience through inclusive economic growth. Over the four years of the activity period, ATTEINDRE is expected to impact 30,000 MSMEs directly through enhanced productivity; greater access to inclusive financial products and services (including the digital payments), and indirectly by increasing the incomes of women, men, young people and families through resilient business growth and job creation. In terms of geographic coverage, ATTEINDRE will be implemented primarily in four key Resilience Focused Zones (North, Northeast, Central Plateau, and South).

ESS is seeking to engage a Haitian Sub-contractor who is well versed in collecting quantitative data, particularly pertaining to the financial sector and Micro Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). The Subcontract will be Firm Fixed Price with the anticipated period of performance starting August 2021. The data collection is anticipated to take place for a month, starting early September, in the USAID Resilience Focus Zones (North, Northeast, Central Plateau, and South). Precise dates will be communicated upon award.
